The first full week of the 2023 NFL preseason began Thursday night, with the past few weeks of training camp work ready to be put to the test in a more formal game-day setting. As teams ramped up for the season, national reporters Dan Graziano and Jeremy Fowler hit the road with stops at 15 teams' camps over a couple of weeks, talking to players, coaches, execs and scouts along the way. Dan went out West, hitting Colorado before a turn through Washington and eventually California. Jeremy started off in Florida but also ran up the East Coast a bit before hitting a few additional spots in the Midwest.
All 15 stops are now in the books -- Detroit, Green Bay, the New York Giants, Tampa Bay, Seattle, Miami, Denver, Jacksonville, Dallas, San Francisco, Chicago, Atlanta, Carolina and both L.A. teams -- and our NFL duo compiled everything they heard and learned along the way. How does each team look in the early going? Which players have stood out? How are quarterbacks and coaches in new towns settling in? Here's the latest from each team's camp, including useful fantasy nuggets to know.
