With training camps closing in and the 2012 NFL season just over a month away, a lot of NFL news is starting to pour in. Much like you, I’d rather be spending my time playing games at playpoker.com or doing jumping jacks out in the backyard than filter through the endless news string that comes with a fresh NFL preseason.
