If Peter King (@SI_PeterKing) is going to jump into the start of the NFL preseason, he’s going to do it full bore. Thus, for the next four weeks, King will be touring NFL training camps in a bus supplied by the USO, delivering video postcards from every one of the 25 (or so) stops on his long, strange trip.
Readers on the tablets can keep track of his progress in real time as part of this week’s SI Digital Bonus. (Today he’s in Pittsford, N.Y., to visit the Buffalo Bills). If the flag denoting a training camp site is illuminated in red, touch to see what thoughts he walked away with from the team in question. King also names his winners and loser of this year’s frenzied free agency period as an additional tablet bonus to our “NFL 2.0” cover package.
