Let's do this camp thing!

OK then. We've had a news-packed day, and players from all four NFC North teams have now reported to their respective training camps. That makes it time to depart blog headquarters for our annual camp tour.

For reasons that will soon be evident, I'm taking a different approach to training camp coverage this year. Here's what I can tell you at the moment: It will start Friday morning with the Minnesota Vikings in Mankato, Minn., where I will see three practices before departing Monday.

I'll provide additional information at that point. We'll take it day by day and step by step, as they say in the cliché business. Have a pleasant evening, and I'll be back with you Friday from Minnesota State University, Mankato.
