Saints coach Sean Payton said the reason WR Willie Snead and TE Coby Fleener played so many snaps into the second half of Sunday's preseason game was because their overall summer snap count was lower than others after they had missed practice time with injuries. I still have Snead penciled in as the No. 2 receiver on the roster and Fleener as the No. 1 tight end. But it is worth noting that Snead was listed as a backup behind Ted Ginn Jr. on the unofficial depth chart, and Josh Hill started ahead of Fleener in Sunday's game. At the very least, both players might need to keep earning their status in practices and games over the next month.

Ravens coach John Harbaugh canceled Monday's practice and took his team on a tour of the Pentagon, the laying of a wreath at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier and a visit to John F. Kennedy's gravesite (Arlington National Cemetery). "Football is a meritocracy, and our team has worked hard throughout this offseason and training camp," Harbaugh said. "Our coaches appreciate and respect that effort. The team deserves a day away from the fields and meetings, and an opportunity to spend some time together away from the facility. How fortunate and blessed are we to experience a day like this. It's humbling, and we are so appreciative."

Bills LB Lorenzo Alexander to SiriusXM NFL Radio on Monday about fans' current view of team: "It doesn't look picture perfect right now. Based on the team, the history, the organization, and what has happened in the past, that's where naturally people's minds want to go. But we still have a lot of great football players on this team, defensively, offensively -- we just have to continue to work to put it together. I don't expect anybody based on the past to be all happy and joyful right now. We have to go out there and earn that type of respect and calmness from the fans by going out there and playing hard and creating that type of culture. Until we start doing that, I can understand why people are going to think that way."

Cam Newton starts off team drills from the 15 with a strike to tight end Greg Olsen for a touchdown. Nice touch.

David Newton ESPN Staff Writer 

Panthers quarterback Cam Newton looked good on intermediate throws during individual drills. We will see how much he does in team drills as he increases reps to perhaps play on Thursday at Jacksonville.


David Newton ESPN Staff Writer 

It's going to be a steamy, hot pre-solar eclipse practice for the Panthers, who are in shells today. Quarterback Cam Newton is loosening up with a little dance as his reps are supposed to increase this week.

Jordan Raanan ESPN Staff Writer 

Note: The Giants have a game tonight. Sticking to their normal plan. Nothing special for the solar eclipse.
