Rob Gronkowski’s “This is SportsCenter” ad is the perfect encapsulation of line in an office after someone gets engaged. Nobody went to Jared though, they went to … Disneyland. Oh god. That was really corny. Sorry about that.
In any event, Gronk does a super good job here and Kenny Mayne saying “too much” is perfect.
Winston completed his first five passes of the drive before scrambling into the end zone for an eight-yard touchdown run with 1:12 remaining in the second quarter. It was an impressive display of pocket awareness from the rookie, especially considering some of his early miscues.
Patrick Omameh is listed as the primary backup to Dotson on the Buccaneers’ official depth chart, but Kevin Pamphile will likely take the bulk of the reps if Dotson has to miss any time. The injury occurred late in the half, as the Buccaneers kept starters in to give rookie quarterback Jameis Winston more time with the first team.
On top of that, you’d have to think the team’s running backs will score more than the paltry four rushing touchdowns they did over the course of last season. Other than Evans’ 12, the only other Buccaneer who scored more than two touchdowns last season was Josh McCown, who ran for three scores. If Evans doesn’t score the vast majority of the team’s touchdowns again, he won’t make as much sense as a WR1.
This year, the Patriots have LeGarrette Blount (doesn’t catch passes), Jonas Gray (doesn’t catch passes), Brandon Bolden (special teams only), James White (ditto) … and Cadet, who caught 38 balls for New Orleans last year and could fill the Vereen role in the New England offense. It’s a Patriot running back, and you never know how that might shake out, but he could provide sneaky value late.
