The Bucs did spend a little on this line, signing 29-year-old former Redskins 3-4 end Chris Baker to complement Gerald McCoy as a 4-3 tackle. McCoy has needed veteran support at this level for a while, and the strength of a good unit will lie inside.
William Gholston and Robert Ayers will remain the starters at end, but expect the Bucs to dial up their usage of second-year man Noah Spence to be a bigger force in edge pass-rushing situations. The team should build on the 38 sacks (tied for 9th in the NFL) it had last season. Baker’s impact should also be felt against the run, where the Bucs were below average last season.
Given Matt Forte’s age (31) at his position and what has happened to the roster around him, the veteran back’s status is a bit of a surprise. Then again, the Jets don’t have much behind him.
Bilal Powell returns as the No. 2 man on the depth chart, and New York added Elijah McGuire in the sixth round of the draft. Morton is expected to use all three in a committee approach.
Bills running back Jonathan Williams has been found not guilty on a charge of driving while intoxicated stemming from July 2016.
The lack of a positive blood test that proved Williams was driving intoxicated is what led to the not guilty verdict, according to TMZ Sports .
“The prosecution simply didn’t have enough evidence to prove he was intoxicated,” Williams’ lawyer, Shake Wilkinson, told TMZ.
Williams was driving in Fayetteville, Ark., when he was pulled over. Police said they noticed an odor of alcohol coming from Williams and that his eyes were bloodshot.
Williams said he only had one beer earlier in the night and Wholesale Jerseys China refused Victor Cruz Cheap Jerseys to take a breathalyzer test, which led to him being arrested.
In his rookie season with the Bills, Williams, a fifth-round draft pick, rushed for 94 yards with one touchdown on 27 carries.
