Are you ready for football?

The 2019 NFL regular season starts on Sept. 5. Preseason starts on Aug. 1 (with the Hall of Fame game). And the first training camp commences on July 17 for the Denver Broncos, with most other teams starting on July 24.

With the football season approaching, let's take stock of the most compelling storylines for every NFL team as they begin training camp. (Forgive me, many of these storylines center around the quarterback. They are, by far, the most interesting position in the NFL.)

As clock ticks for Cowboys and Ezekiel Elliott, Zeke plans to travel out of the country Our popcorn is indeed ready. The Cowboys report for camp in five days. Running back Ezekiel Elliott may or may not be there.

Charley Casserly identifies one key storyline for each NFL team heading into the 2019 season. With this weekend marking the first in which all 32 teams have reported to training camp for the 2019 season, NFL Network analyst and Super Bowl-winning former executive Charley Casserly provides a

AFC East

Buffalo Bills: What can Josh Allen do with his new weapons?

The second-year quarterback had a brutal rookie season, but he had an excuse: the offensive skill players were mostly trash. The story isn't the same this year - the Bills added receivers John Brown, Cole Beasley, David Sills and Andre Roberts, tight ends Dawson Knox and Tyler Kroft and rookie running back Devin Singletary. The situation isn't great, but it's better.

Miami Dolphins: Can Brian Flores reignite Josh Rosen's career?

Flores is a defensive coach - he spent last season as the New England Patriots' de-facto defensive coordinator - but he has surrounded himself with bright offensive minds like offensive coordinator Chad O'Shea. Flores and O'Shea will be charged will jump-starting Rosen's career.

Trent Williams could see hefty fine should he hold out of Redskins training camp

Trent Williams could see hefty fine should he hold out of Redskins training camp Trent Williams is not likely to show up for the start of training camp this week, which means the team is liable to fine him for his absence

In a couple of weeks, teams will start kicking off training camps . Shortly after that—on August 7—the preseason will be underway The development of Rams quarterback Jared Goff is one of the most buzzworthy storylines heading into NFL training camps .Associated Press.

This is a team with Super Bowl aspirations. Here are the top five storylines heading into camp . The offseason for Mahomes has consisted of many public appearances, winning ‘Best NFL Player’ at the Training camp begins on July 27. The Chiefs will report to Missouri Western State University to begin

New England Patriots: What will they do without Gronk?

They'll be fine. With Tom Brady and Bill Belichick, they're always fine.

New York Jets: Will the offseason spending prove to be a total waste?

The Jets fired general manager Mike Maccagnan after he invested heavily on free agent linebacker C.J. Mosley and running back Le'Veon Bell. They're good players, who came at bad prices. That may hurt that Jets.

AFC North

Baltimore Ravens: All eyes on Earl Thomas.

Yes, Lamar Jackson's development will be a compelling storyline. But the Ravens figure to run the ball at an insane volume, which means their defense will be the team's focal-point in 2019. Can Thomas become an immediate contributor after playing just four games in 2018?

Cincinnati Bengals: Is Zac Taylor in over his head?

Probably, yes. The former quarterbacks coach of the Los Angeles Rams has a lot to prove as he takes over the Bengals, who had one of the NFL's worst defenses in 2018.

Cleveland Browns: Can their Offensive line protect Baker Mayfield?

As noted by my colleague Steven Ruiz, the Browns are set to start a pair of unimpressive tackles. Bad tackles can make for a bad offense, even if it includes Odell Beckham Jr.

Pittsburgh Steelers: Please, let the drama stop.

The Steelers have watched Le'Veon Bell and Antonio Brown depart in dramatic fashion. Maybe this year will be a drama-free environment where the Steelers actually focus on football. Then again, Ben Roethlisberger is still there - so it's probably not happening.

AFC South

Houston Texans: Will the tension ease between the team and Jadeveon Clowney?

Clowney is one of the NFL's most talented defensive players, but he doesn't have the financial security he desires. He's playing on the franchise tag in 2019. To make things worse, the Texans may try to nickel and dime him by labelling him a linebacker, instead of a defensive end, to save the team $1.7 million.

Indianapolis Colts: Time to worship Chris Ballard?

The Colts general manager has proven brilliant with his shrewd talent evaluation and patience in free agency and the draft. This offseason was more of the same conservative approach, as his biggest free agency acquisition was Devin Funchess, who arrives on a low-risk one year deal. In the draft, he traded out of the first round, instead making three second-round selections: Temple CB Rock Ya-Sin, TCU LB Ben Banogu and Ohio State WR Parris Campbell. It will probably be considered another impressive offseason.

NFL Rumors: Patriots O-Lineman Brian Schwenke Retires On Eve Of Training Camp

Jacksonville Jaguars: Nick Foles will come crashing down to earth, right?

Let's see if Nick Foles is more than Blake Bortles 2.0.

Tennessee Titans: Is there a quarterback battle afoot?

Mike Vrabel has dodged commitment to Marcus Mariota, who is playing on his fifth-year option in 2019 and could enter free agency in 2020. He and Ryan Tannehill may face off in the quarterback battle no one asked for.

AFC West

Denver Broncos: How good are these young pass-catchers?

The Broncos have an abundance of young and promising talent. Receivers Courtland Sutton, DaeSean Hamilton and even Tim Patrick seem to be up-and-coming. Rookie tight end Noah Fant is an athletic marvel. But those players are atop the team's depth chart, with Emmanuel Sanders coming back slowly from injury. The youngsters need to be productive - not just promising.

Kansas City Chiefs: What happens to Tyreek Hill?

The Chiefs are awaiting the NFL's decision about the future of Hill, who faces allegations of child abuse. The NFL is reportedly awaiting the decision the outcome of an investigation by child protective services. The criminal investigation by local authorities is no longer active. If the league suspends Hill, the Chiefs might look to rookie wideout Mecole Hardman.

Oakland Raiders: What's next for Antonio Brown?

Westbrook makes it clear, he only cares about Rockets

Westbrook makes it clear, he only cares about Rockets New Houston Rockets point guard Russell Westbrook has made it clear that he's focused on one thing and that's the Rockets. Russell Westbrook when asked about player empowerment: "I only care about one team. The Houston #Rockets." - Alykhan Bijani (@Rockets_Insider) July 26, 2019 Westbrook is coming off another amazing season that saw him average 29 points, 11.1 rebounds, and 10.7 assists for his third straight season of averaging a triple-double, but it was not enough as the Thunder were ousted in five games by the Portland Trail Blazers in Round 1 of the postseason.

It was a wild offseason for Brown. Will he keep things interesting in training camp? ( Tune in next week on "Hard Knocks.")

Los Angeles Chargers: Will they have the best defensive line in the NFL?

Between Joey Bosa, Melvin Ingram, Brandon Mebane, Justin Jones and rookie Jerry Tillery, this defensive line may inject itself into the conversation as one of the NFL's best.

NFC East

Dallas Cowboys: Can the team appease all their contract-needy stars?

Quarterback Dak Prescott, running back Ezekiel Elliott and receiver Amari Cooper need new deals, and the Cowboys are figuring out which demands they're going to meet first. But Elliott is beginning to feel neglected and may hold out, according to Yahoo's Charles Robinson. This situation could get complicated.

New York Giants: How long until Daniel Jones edges out Eli Manning?

The Giants are about to mishandle the heck out of this situation.

Philadelphia Eagles: Did they add enough talent on defense?

The Eagles lost Chris Long to retirement and Jordan Hicks to free agency. But they returned Brandon Graham and added safety Andrew Sendejo and defensive tackle Malik Jackson. The biggest question, however, is whether that injury-plagued cornerback group will continue to play better in 2019.

Washington Redskins: How hot is Jay Gruden's seat?

Will the owners in Washington show a lack of confidence in Gruden?

NFC North

Chicago Bears: How does the team replace Vic Fangio?

Their defensive coordinator became the Broncos head coach. Can Chuck Pagano, Fangio's replacement, make a successful comeback?

Detroit Lions: Just let me watch T.J. Hockenson.

The rookie tight end is going to be an animal.

Green Bay Packers: Can Matt LaFleur convince Aaron Rodgers to check down to running backs?

Can LaFleur convince Rodgers of anything? Check-downs would go a long way in preserving Rodgers' health.

Minnesota Vikings: The most talented roster in the NFL?

Their level of talent is absurd. Even Kirk Cousins is talented. It's just that superlative talent isn't always a case study for success, with Cousins serving as an example of that.

NFC South

Atlanta Falcons: Would the team actually fire Dan Quinn?

He took them to a Super Bowl. But of course, they threw that game away (looking at you, Kyle Shanahan) and allowed the biggest comeback in Super Bowl history. The Falcons were also 7-9 last year - and they absolutely should not have been 7-9.

Carolina Panthers: A wide open receiver battle.

Perhaps I shouldn't use the expression "wide open" when describing a receiver battle that includes top wideouts D.J. Moore, Jarius Wright, Chris Hogan and Torrey Smith. These receivers will struggle to get open.

New Orleans Saints: Watch the Jared COok hype train gain momentum.

The Saints offense can be great for tight ends. Cook was excellent in 2018 with the Oakland Raiders. Cook will be a fantasy football darling.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Jameis Winston watch.

Like Mariota, Winston is playing on his fifth-year option, an oddity in the modern NFL. Most quarterbacks earn themselves a new deal by now. But the Bucs are still waiting for Winston to convince them he's worth a long-term commitment.

Arizona Cardinals: Let the Kliff Kingsbury-Kyler Murray experiment commence.

Air. Raid. Offense.

Los Angeles Rams: What's up with Todd Gurley's knee?

The Rams can probably figure out what to do without a healthy Gurley. But the eyes of fantasy football owners will be glued to running back situation in L.A.

San Francisco 49ers: It's finally Jimmy G. Time - again.

The ebbs and flows of Jimmy Garoppolo's career have been wild. First, he was a promising young quarterback, who was thrust into action by Deflategate in 2016. Then he was practically unbeatable in 2017. Then he was without a functional ACL in 2018. This is Garoppolo's year . . . right?

Seattle Seahawks: Will the 'Legion of Whom' work?

As the "Legion of Boom" came undone, the Seahawks began to cultivate young talent, who are buying into Pete Carroll's system. Carroll will try to work magic with a no-name secondary.
