If recent history holds, it’s going to happen. And it’s going to matter to the Seahawks’ season. Seattle is going to need a safety to step up and play a key role in the center of its defense if Kam Chancellor or Earl Thomas get hurt again. Thomas is coming off a broken tibia that ended his 2016 season a month plus two playoff games early. Though the three-time All-Pro free safety wowed everyone including coach Pete Carroll with his full participation in organized team activities and the minicamp that ended the offseason practices this past week, Thomas is coming off the first major injury of his career. Chancellor, 29, has not played a season without missing multiple games due to injury since
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers did the time-honored NFL thing by cutting their final minicamp practice on Thursday short. Just about every team does something like this at the end of minicamp. Buccaneers quarterback Jameis Winston didn’t want practice to end early.
The Washington Redskins promoted former quarterback Doug Williams to Senior Vice President of Player Personnel, the team announced Tuesday. Washington president Bruce Allen said that the team interviewed about "a dozen" candidates for the job before promoting Williams. Williams, 61, was previously the team's front office personnel executive and before that spent six years with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in their front office.
Mike Evans wants to do anything he can to help transform the Tampa Bay Buccaneers into a playoff team. The fourth-year pro is Jameis Winston's favorite target and has established himself as one of the NFL's top receivers over the past three seasons.
