Training camp dates revealed

 

NFL training camps get underway next month, and the start dates and locations for all 32 teams were released last week. Football is coming…

 

 

Packers name next franchise leader

 

Edward R. Policy has been elected as the Green Bay Packers’ next Chairman of the Board, President, and CEO.

 

  • Policy, who is entering his 13th season with the Packers, is currently Green Bay’s chief operating officer and general counsel.
  • He will take over the Chairman, President, and CEO role in July 2025.
  • Mark Murphy, who has been in the role since 2007, will lead the team over the next 13 months before Policy takes over.
  • Policy says he is “incredibly honored, excited and grateful” for the opportunity.

 

Bottom line: The Packers are the NFL’s only team that’s actually a publicly-owned organization. The Chairman, President, and CEO role is as close as it gets to an operating owner of the franchise.

 

Patriots pay Stevenson

 

The Patriots signed running back Rhamondre Stevenson to a four-year, $36 million contract extension.

 

 

Stevenson’s extension has a max value of $48 million with incentives each season of the deal:

 

  • $600K each for hitting 1,400, 1,500, and 1,600 yards from scrimmage
  • $600K each for Pro Bowl and All-Pro (First- or Second-Team)

 

More transactions

 

The Chiefs cut defensive lineman Isaiah Buggs after two offseason arrests. Other moves from last week include:

 

  • The Cowboys signed 2017 first-round pick cornerback Gareon Conley and linebacker Willie Harvey Jr. after both played in the UFL.
  • The Jaguars added wide receiver Denzel Mims after he was released by the Steelers.
  • Star UFL running back Jacob Saylors signed with the Giants.
  • The Seahawks signed UFL running back Ricky Person Jr.
  • The Broncos signed outside linebacker Dondrea Tillman out of the UFL.
  • The Patriots signed offensive lineman Liam Fornadel from the UFL.
  • The Saints signed defensive back Roderic Teamer.
