Chargers TE Hunter Henry’ready’ to fill Gates’ shoes
With the Los Angeles Chargers saying goodbye to future Hall of Fame tight end Antonio Gates, the team is officially passing the torch to Hunter Henry.
The third-year tight end understands he’s under pressure to fill big shoes.
Among Rodgers’ amazing stats, his career聽94-48 regular-season record聽while playing nine of 10 seasons against first- or second-place schedules is up there. This year, the Packers have聽plenty of fluff on their schedule relative to other NFC contenders, as they’ll face the聽Bears (twice), Bills, Cardinals, Washington Redskins, Miami Dolphins and New York Jets.
Before suffering a torn ACL midway through the 2017 season, rookie signal-caller Deshaun Watson had a 103.0 passer rating. Tom Savage, who is no longer with the team, finished with just a 71.4 passer rating.
The Giants are now left with a decision to make on a young tackle who has struggled early in his career and has elected to train away from his team this offseason. His status was already considered questionable after a frosty relationship with his fellow offensive linemen and the belief among teammates that he shut it down early Tavon Austin Jersey last season.
Game Mens Landon Collins Jersey Flowers, 24, remains on the roster, for now. He’ll have to earn his spot this summer.
The University of Miami product has not attended the team’s voluntary offseason workout program, instead opting to train at home in Florida. He was one of the few players who did not participate in the team’s voluntary minicamp last week.
If the Tampa Bay Buccaneers were in the AFC, we’d be talking about them as a potential聽wild-card team. In the NFC South, where every other team made the playoffs last season, they are mostly overlooked.
The Bucs had an above-average passing attack, and rookie running back Ronald Jones should help bolster their run game. On defense, they’re two-deep at every defensive line spot, have proven linebackers and have dumped assets into the secondary over the last three years.
That still might not be enough to make a dent in the NFC South just yet.
