It often takes something extraordinary, like Super Bowl-winning coaches Jon Gruden and Tony Dungy, to crack 10 wins in Tampa. Until Winston goes from a slightly above-average quarterback to a savior, the Buccaneers will stay on the bubble of relevance.
When I came in, it can be an intimidating thing when you come into that situation a Hall of Famer, first ballot, and one of the greatest tight ends of all time [playing with you]. So, it can be intimidating, but he took me under his wing and taught me everything he could these past two years, Henry said of Gates, via the L.A. Times. It’s been incredible. He’s still a great friend of mine. Matt Niskanen Jersey I talk to him. I was with him a couple of weekends ago. It’s been really cool to be able to play with him these past two years.

The transition from Gates to Henry has been in the making since the Chargers used a second-round pick in 2016 on the Arkansas product. Last season when L.A. upped Henry’s playing time over Gates, the Chargers’ offense found an extra gear.

Since Aaron Rodgers took over as the Packers’ starting quarterback in 2008, the team has played against a first-place schedule six times, a second-place schedule three times and a third-place schedule just once. That one time was in 2009, when Green Bay’s record jumped from 6-10 the year before to 11-5.
Instead, the Browns went in another direction and selected Ohio State defensive back Denzel Ward. Why? Defensive coordinator Gregg Williams has the answer.

Despite already having Demaryius Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders on the roster, the Broncos selected both Courtland Sutton and DaeSean Hamilton in the first four rounds. They also took pass-rusher Bradley Chubb fifth overall even though they have Von Miller, Shane Ray and Shaquil Barrett.
Why? Denver can easily terminate the contracts of Thomas and Sanders in 2019, and Ray and Barrett’s contracts are set to expire soon. If the Broncos wanted to win now, they would have dumped assets into their offensive line. Elway’s approach was different: re-establish stability.
