To compete in the NFC South right now, you have to be able to keep pace with the Falcons offense. Adding Jackson helps the Bucs accomplish that by giving them a dynamic speedster to pair with Mike Evans.
The Rams needed o-line help bad enough to sign a 35-year old left tackle to a three-year, $36 million contract with $15 million guaranteed. Whitworth did make two All-Pro teams in his last two seasons, and has only missed two starts in his last eight years. He was the best left tackle available this year.
Draft bust Greg Robinson will likely move inside to guard. The right tackle job can go to either Rodger Saffold or Rob Havenstein. The Rams have been trying to build a viable offensive line since Orland Pace left a decade ago. This gets them a competent option for protecting their investment in Jared Goff.
Hunter Meadows, one of the men with the flag, said he thought that it wasn’t “fair” that “Confederate flag supporters” were being blamed for Roof, who is being sentenced to death.
“I didn’t feel it was right when the flag came down,” Meadows, who has family members that fought for the Confederacy in the Civil War, said. “We wanted to show the NCAA that we’re still here.”
Citing safety issues, Greenville Police made the truck move back 50 feet from where it was parked. There has been no indication that the group was made to remove the flag. Police did force one group waving flags to leave because metal poles don’t comply with Greenville city ordinance.
The group allegedly left before telling police “they’ll be back.”
