Let’s take a look at five NFL rookies that will shine this season.
C’mon Blue, let the boys play!
Word dripped down this week that Jim Kelly’s cancer is gone. But what does that mean? Is it gone today only to make its interminable, terminal march back to his enervated frame? Or is it really gone, as in he won?
The Minnesota Vikings have a long tradition of having very good defensive tackles. They drafted Sharrif Floyd in the first round of the 2013 draft in hopes that he can continue the trend. He learned a lot of from former teammate Kevin Williams and slimmed down in the offseason to reach his full potential. This season should be the beginning of the Floyd era in Minnesota.
So which teams will have fans weeping by All Hallow’s Eve? Here are the fives best bets.
Johnny Manziel fell a lot further than anyone would have expected at the NFL Draft, but he landed right where the Cleveland Browns wanted him to fall. Now, the focus needs to stay on the field instead of off it, and Manziel could up bringing an excitement that the Browns have not seen in decades.
The 49ers’ acquisition of wide receiver Stevie Johnson is a win for both the team and player. San Francisco gets what they hope is the final missing piece to their passing game, while Johnson gets the chance to return home and not only play for a contender, but play in a market where his talents will not go un-noticed.
Good leaders lead by example … flipping birds isn’t one.
Despite the ongoing controversy surrounding its team name, the Washington Redskins still are more valuable than ever.
Royster, 26, is competing with Chris Thompson, Lache Seastrunk and college free agent Silas Redd for what will likely be one last spot at running back behind Alfred Morris and Roy Helu.
