That was neither an acknowledgment that he’d like to get Trubisky his own package, nor a comparison between his rookie and Tebow, who owned a very different skill set. In truth, inserting Trubisky in for a few plays here or there as a rookie makes little sense for a player who needs a boatload of reps to get used to reading NFL defenses.
The question of how long Glennon holds on to the starting gig will hover over the franchise all summer and into the fall. That’s merely the byproduct of selecting a quarterback with the second pick.
Entering his seventh season, Amukamara played on a one-year deal with the Jaguars last season, starting 12 games and finishing the campaign as the league’s 42nd-ranked cover man, per Pro Football Focus.
His Jacksonville stop came after five years in New York, where the 19th overall pick of the 2011 draft battled a laundry list of injuries but still showed moments of promise.
The 28-year-old was placed on injured reserve in December after suffering a hip flexor in midseason. In four seasons in Kansas City, Howard recorded 7.5 sacks and wholesale jerseys and 122 combined tackles.
Howard joins a Bears defensive line that looks roughly the same as last season’s, anchored by Akiem Hicks and Eddie Goldman. If Howard recovers from his injury without incident, he should be the Week 1 starter at defensive end.
In addition to the injury, he’s also dealing with significant wear-and-tear on this right shoulder from years of bumps, bruises and countless throws. The result is painful tendonitis that threatens to end his season.
A week after the initial injury, Cutler is listed as doubtful for Sunday’s game against the Titans. He won’t play and Matt Barkley will start. There is not a lot of optimism Cutler will return to the field this season, though the team considers him one of their toughest players so they haven’t ruled out that prospect. They want to give him every opportunity to return, which would also mean they wouldn’t have to start Barkley through the balance of the season.
Rather than believing the Giants would purposely sabotage their own offense, which struggled to move the ball for major portions of last season, Cruz should realize a large portion in his production drop was tied to his move from the slot to the outside. With Sterling Shepard taking over the slot role, Cruz struggled as an outside receiver.
The veteran wideout confirmed that during offseason workouts with the Bears that he’s spent most of his time working out of the slot.
“Still D.R.E.” is an all-time banger from Dr. Dre that kicked off a huge career resurgence for the West Coast legend and reminded the world that Snoop Dogg was still a Randy Moss-like force. “D.R.E.”, though not as popular as subsequent Dre singles, remains a must include for any old school hip-hop mix from the era.
At the heart of the 1999 single, released somewhat confusingly, on Dre’s comeback record 2001 — is a looping piano riff that serves as the backbone of the entire song. It still sounds great today, and apparently we’re not the only ones with healthy appreciation for a classic.
