First Impressions: The Best NFL Training Camp Arrivals
If the NFL subscribes to any one thing, it is sheer pageantry. Nowhere is our loving gawkfest of men in tights better illustrated than the four or so weeks of drills and practices known as training camp. The players (and their savvy marketers) know this full well and every year they exponentially play to their audience. From emergency entrances arrivals to edible attire, Week 1 of training camp produced some instant classics.
