This is the slowest portion of the NFL calendar, and barring the latest Johnny Manziel update or the random player arrest, there's little to report until training camps open later this month.
To put things in perspective, two days after the Colts made Andrew Luck the NFL's highest-paid player, signing him to a six-year, $140 million deal, the Memphis Grizzlies reportedly agreed to pay Mike Conley $153 million over five years.
And there are plenty of other NBA players making bank today, much to the chagrin of their underpaid-by-comparison NFL counterparts.

We know Colts punter Pat McAfee is joking, but there's plenty of truth to what he's saying too. Namely: Do a better job negotiating the next CBA.
Not surprised. Basic supply and demand. Players are worth the job they do and NBA players have a great Union https://t.co/SbJWwS2b0U— Tyler Polumbus (@Tyler_Polumbus) July 2, 2016
