Defensive coordinator Keith Butler told reporters that Dupree's chase-down ability will be more effective on the blind side. He overran too many quarterbacks last year.

Antonio Brown, while serving at a local food bank on behalf of Campbell's Chunky Soup, told ESPN that his pointed pre-minicamp comments Tuesday "felt good." "Any time you get to express yourself in a positive way, it's a good thing," Brown said. "I want to inspire change. I'm not out here trying to be a preacher, but I want to speak things that are truthful, not to be combative, but to let people know you're aware of what's out there. We are human. We are men. I just hate to be put under the pressure where anything can be said. You have to explain the situation. I want to help the athletes coming after me.”
