The NFL has become very adept at conjuring something out of nothing,

Especially in the offseason. When nothing is really happening from a football standpoint,

But it feels like everything is going on.Today brings the second annual 

“Back Together Saturday,” the league’s latest 

Effort to craft a tentpole event that gathers simultaneous eyeballs — and wallets.

We’re not complaining about the concept. The name is a little clunky. 

And it feels more forced than organic. Still, football really is back. 

All camps are open. The slow time has faded into the rear-view mirror.
