There are a decent amount of NFL players whose roster spots and places in the starting lineup are guaranteed before training camp even begins. Barring injury, Tom Brady will be the New England starting quarterback this season; DeAndre Hopkins will be Houston’s No. 1 receiver; Von Miller will be rushing off the left side of the Denver defense, and so on.
