Welcome to the Sports Ticket it's friday. NFL training camps are starting to heat up. The ticket is here to bring you more NFL news. With that said lets get started.
News from Ravens camp
LT Bryant Mckinnie is not in camp due to a personal matter. Mckinnie's absense from camp is a problem especially for guy who as a history of weight problems. If Mckinnie's absense turns into a long-term issue the team should cut him immediately.
Defensive tackle Haloti Ngata tweaked his hamsting and was unable to pass the team's conditioning test. He was subsequently placed on the physically unable to perform list and will probably be out for a while. With Suggs already out for most the season. Ngata ability to be ready for the season is something to keep an eye on.
Joe Flacco,his agent and the Ravens continue to work on a long-term deal. When will this deal get down? is anybody's guess my feeling is that it will get done sometime during training camp.
News from Jaguars camp
RB Maurice Jones-Drew is a holding out. He wants a new contract. Jaguars owner Shad Khan disagree's saying that ''There's no decision here'' MJD is teams best player and I think the he should get a new deal. But MJD has a problem no leverage with the new CBA player holdouts won't have the affect that they use too.
WR Justin Blackmon the team's 1Rd pick is also a no show. Blackmon's deal is probably not done because of the DUI. If you are the Jaguars you are going to want to do a deal that protects the team. And given Blackmon's history of off-the-field issues who can blame them.
News from Steelers camp
WR Mike Wallace and the Steelers are at a standstill in regards to Wallace's contract. As a result Wallace as chosen to hold out of camp until a new deal gets done good luck. The Steelers policy is that they will not negotiate with veteran holdouts. My thoughts on this again no leverage, so unless he reports to camp no deal will get done.
News from Vikings camp
RB Adrian Pterson as been placed on the teams active physically unable to perform list to start training camp. In my opinion this is a good move by the team. They should proceed with caution when it comes to Peterson. He can come off the PUP list at anytime.
In other NFL news the Cleveland Browns are up for sale.
