Falcons' Quinn brings hands-on approach to training camp (The Associated Press) ( yesterday ) Courtesy of
Dan Quinn brought a hands-on coaching style to his first Atlanta Falcons' training camp on Friday. Whether sprinting from one side of the field to the other or standing in the middle of a play, deflecting pass-rushers with blocking pads on his hands, Quinn was extremely active on the opening day of training camp. Running back Devonta Freeman said players can't go half-speed, even in the heat, when Quinn, 44, is running full-speed. Yahoo! Fri, Jul 31

Report: Kam Chancellor will hold out from Seahawks camp, seeking new deal (Shutdown Corner) Courtesy of
The biggest question about the Seattle Seahawks entering the 2015 season seems to be: How will they bounce back following the disappointment of losing the Super Bowl in haunting fashion? But that might need adjusting. ESPN's Adam Schefter is reporting that Seahawks safety Kam Chancellor intends to hold out from training camp in search of a new deal. Money, it would appear, is the biggest worry in Seattle right now. [ Yahoo Sports Fantasy Football: Sign up and join a league today! ] In addition to Chancellor, defensive end Michael Bennett is also unhappy with his contract — staying away from volunteer workout and perhaps even requesting a trade — and might join Chancellor as a no-show at the start of camp. That also would be the self-imposed deadline by which Russell Wilson wants an extension before he heads into the final year of his deal. And oh yeah, he reportedly just turned down a $21M-per-year deal. And double oh yeah, linebacker Bobby Wagner needs a new contract. Anyone else? Yes — Bruce Irvin, a free agent after the season who already has made overtures with the Atlanta Falcons. Oh, and sorry, left tackle Russell Okung, too. The Seahawks have been very generous with some of their core players over the past few seasons, extending safety Earl Thomas, corner Richard Sherman, receiver Doug Baldwin, linebacker K.J. Wright, defensive end Cliff Avril and running back Marshawn Lynch. They also added the remaining three years and $27 million on the contract of tight end Jimmy Graham, who was landed in an offseason trade. Chancellor's last contract extension came in 2013, when he signed a four-year, $28 million deal, so the ink hardly is dry on that one. He's currently signed up through the 2017 season, with base salaries of $4.55 million, $5.1  million and $6.8  million the next three seasons, respectively. Yeah, it's getting hard to pay everyone. But with Thomas (torn labrum) and Jeremy Lane (forearm, knee) coming off offseason surgery — and their status for the start of the season in doubt — Chancellor has some tremendous leverage. He's one of the Seahawks' tone setters and a uniquely sized hitter and intimidator at the position. The Seahawks have ridden the razor's edge the past few seasons, fueled by a confident locker room and Pete Carroll's devil-may-care approach. They'd fed on chaos and made it a weapon even. But this is getting tricky. Already you have Malcolm Butler nightmares, and the Wilson situation has been in the news every few weeks this offseason, At some point, they might reach their max-fill level of this kind of turmoil. And at this rate,  they certainly can't pay every player on the roster what they think they're worth, either. - - - - - - - Eric Edholm is a writer for Shutdown Corner on Yahoo Sports. Have a tip?
