We've reached the quietest time in the NFL. Minicamps are done, but training camps don't start for more than a month. The content, though? It never really slows down.
It's not like ESPN, SI.com or NFL.com just put up a blank page on the NFL portions of their websites that say, "Page not found. Check back next month."
Bucky Brooks seems to acknowledge this with a recent piece for NFL.com about the best wide receiver groups in the NFL. He used a bold statement by Browns receivers Josh Gordon and Jarvis Landry — that Cleveland has the best receivers in the league. Cleveland! — to explore the question. The beauty of the list is that nobody can disprove it for months. They can only argue about it.
That said, Vikings fans should note that Brooks — a former NFL player — picks the Vikings, led by Adam Thielen and Stefon Diggs, as having the best group of pass-catchers in the NFL.
