NFL Notes: Bears, Browns, Chargers, Dolphins, Lions, & Packers




  • The Bears’ group of safeties are “rarely” seen making an impact, which could be attributed to a lack of chemistry. (Michael C. Wright)


  • Rookie QB Johnny Manziel is taking reps with the first-team offense on Monday while Brian Hoyer works with the second unit. (Ashley Fox)



  • RB Knowshon Moreno returned to practice on Monday and “showed progress and flashes of the player he was in Denver.”  (James Walker)


  • Lions players appear to “truly believe” in new HC Jim Caldwell and are buying into his “focus on efficiency.” (Michael Rothstein)
  • The defensive tackle combination of Ndamukong Suh and Nick Fairley has been “dominant” thus far. (Michael Rothstein)
  • First-round pick TE Eric Ebron is making progress in the team’s offense, despite struggling in the early part of training camp. (Michael Rothstein)


  • The Packers safety position could now be strength given that Micah Hyde has made a quick transition and first-round pick Ha Ha Clinton-Dix looks “game-ready.” (Rob Demovsky)
  • There are still questions about second-year C J.C. Tretter and his ability to handle the starting job. (Rob Demovsky)
  • WR Jarrett Boykin has been “no better than average” as a replacement for James Jones. (Rob Demovsky)
  • Rookie WR Davante Adams could end up securing the No. 3 receiver job do to Boykin’s struggles. (Rob Demovsky)
  • B.J. Raji looks “re-energized” after moving back to nose tackle. (Rob Demovsky)
