Peppers adjusts to 3-4 defense with Packers (The Associated Press) ( yesterday ) Courtesy of
Standing a sturdy 6-foot-7, Packers pass rusher Julius Peppers poses an imposing sight to opposing linemen even without pads. Good thing Green Bay's front five only has to go up against Peppers in practice now. The eight-time Pro Bowler is spending his first training camp in Titletown after joining the Packers as a free agent in the offseason following four seasons with the division rival Chicago Bears. The lure of playing in a 3-4 defense that also features linebacker Clay Matthews helped lure Peppers north to Green Bay. Yahoo! Mon, Jul 28

Jay Culter taking second-team snaps. Demotion looming? (NBC on Yahoo Sports) ( yesterday ) Courtesy of
BOURBONNAIS — So there was quarterback Jay Cutler during team sessions, working behind the No. 2 offensive line, throwing not to Alshon Jeffery and Brandon Marshall, but to Josh Morgan, Eric Weems and other members of the receiving corps. Demotion? Not quite. Last year the Bears came to camp with just three quarterbacks — Cutler, Josh McCown, Matt Blanchard — in part because the plan was to give Cutler increased snaps in what was a new offense. [MORE BEARS CAMP:  'Meg-a Punt! Meg-a Punt!' chant for Bears rookie P Pat O’Donnell ] This year, with four quarterbacks, the approach is still to acclimate him, this time to personnel. The Bears avoided significant injuries on offense other than those to Cutler, and a goal is to have comfort levels with more just the starters. “Jay is taking probably another 3 to 4 [second-team] reps per period,” said coach Marc Trestman. “We did that to give him more work.” A secondary benefit is to enable more complete evaluation of the second-tier receivers, seeing how they perform with a top quarterback. “He's not only working with the 1’s,” Trestman said, “but he's working with the guys, not only Alshon and Brandon, Marquess [Wilson] but the other guys are in this competition to make this team at wide receiver.” -- John Mullin, CSN Chicago Yahoo!

Rookie punter the star at Chicago Bears' training camp (NBC on Yahoo Sports) ( yesterday ) Courtesy of
BOURBONNAIS — It isn’t every day that a punter is the star of a training-camp practice. Then again, it isn’t every day that a punter, and a rookie one at that, launches tight spirals going more than 70 yards in the air. But Pat O’Donnell has established that he doesn’t appear to be just another punter, the only one taken in the 2014 draft, by the Bears in the sixth round. O’Donnell’s first punt Sunday, a massive boot landing well beyond returner Chris Williams’ reach, drew appreciative whoops from major portions of the Olivet Nazarene crowd estimated at more than 9,500. By the time his turn came around again, fans started a low roar, accompanied by pounding on the metal bleachers, all accompanying a first-of-its-kind rhythmic chant: “Mega-punt! Mega-punt! Mega-Punt!” right up to the moment of O’Donnell’s effort. When he got one off that wobbled down short of the city limits, the result was a good-natured groan. “It’s good to have the fans involved, like we are,” O’Donnell said. [MORE BEARS:  Just how good does the Bears defense need to be? ] Special-teams coordinator Joe DeCamillis wasn’t so sure: “That’s a first. That’s obviously a first. I was thinking, ‘you’ve got to be kidding me over there.’ It was ridiculous. Let’s keep the kid’s feet on the ground so far. No, never.” O’Donnell said his longest punt was as a senior at Miami: 73 yards from scrimmage, meaning 86 yards in the air. One-time Bears punter Todd Sauerbrun, a second-round pick in 1995 and also a true power-punter, arrived for his first training camp in with the license plate “HANGTIME.” Might O’Donnell change his car ID to “MEGA?” "Not just yet,” he said, laughing. O’Donnell is in a solid competition with Tress Way, who wasn’t able to match the moonshots of O’Donnell on Sunday. Coaches have had O’Donnell also do some kickoffs, until now the job of Robbie Gould but something that could involve O’Donnell, who stands 6-4, 200 pounds. “I’m just looking at what the coach has to say right now,” said O’Donnell, who kicked off for three years in college. “Right now that’s Robbie’s job and whatever coach needs me to do, work it different days.” -- John Mullin, CSN Chicago Yahoo!

Caldwell believes Lions will re-sign Suh (The SportsXchange) Courtesy of
Detroit Lions coach Jim Caldwell remains optimistic that the Lions can keep Ndamukong Suh long term, despite the fact the team could not reach an agreement with the All-Pro defensive tackle on a contract extension before the start of training camp. "Absolutely," Caldwell said Sunday. "I'm always optimistic ... and I think without question (Lions management and Suh's agent) are working at it. The Lions begin workouts Monday, and veterans reported Sunday. Yahoo! Sun, Jul 27
