Broncos and Falcons fans, the wait is over. The Hall of Fame game will kick off the preseason Thursday night in Canton, Ohio.
For the other 30 teams, we'll have to wait another week before we get a glimpse of those rookies and other new additions.
Meanwhile, the New York Jets made a surprise addition by signing veteran center Ryan Kalil, who made five Pro Bowls in 12 seasons with the Carolina Panthers. He had announced his retirement before the end of last season.
Here's what you need to know from camps across the league:
Top news of the day
The Jets had shopped for a free-agent center in the offseason, showing interest in Matt Paradis, who ended up replacing Kalil in Carolina. The Jets started camp with Jonotthan Harrison, but instead will go with a more proven veteran.
Gordon, 26, is scheduled to be in the final year of his contract, a fifth-year option worth $5.6 million. His agent told ESPN's Josina Anderson that he requested the trade last week after the team remained at its initial offer of approximately $10 million per season.

Quotes of the day
"My uncle was the first receiver drafted in 1996, overall No. 1 ... and I went second round, 47th. But I had to control what I could control. And now we both have a little something to talk about, we'll see which one holds more weight. But just being a competitor and wanting to be the best, I feel like if you set high goals and you attack 'em, there's rewards at the end of it."Saints receiver Michael Thomas, whose uncle is Keyshawn Johnson

How is Jamie Collins different in his second stint with the Patriots? "Talking to you guys more," he says with a smile. "This is like my fifth or sixth (interview). I don't think I did that many when I was here (2013-2016). I'm trying to change. Overall, just enjoying as a man."
"I'm back, so I'm under new management now. I'm happy." Panthers free safety Tre Boston
"It sounds crazy, but he looks more explosive than he was before, actually. Some of the numbers indicate that with just the way that we've monitored him." - Sean McVay on Cooper Kupp, who had a couple standout plays on Day 4 of Rams camp, including a deep reception from Jared Goff.
