NFL training camps have been in session long enough to give us a sense of the storylines that will dominate the preseason until Week 1, which include everything from looming suspensions to quarterback competitions to injury-recovery timetables.
Every team has a handful of storylines that are worth discussing, so to narrow them down for this list, we've chosen issues and stories that have been covered in the national media as well as by the teams' local reporters.
An issue such as Josh Gordon's suspension appeal is not only captivating to a national audience as well as Browns fans hoping he will play in 2014, but it indeed could change the way the NFL deals with substance-abuse violations in the future.
