A former Packers linebacker was found shot to death in his home Monday night, al.com reported.
Carlos Gray, 25, was found wounded and unresponsive in his Pinson, Ala., home by a friend, according to police.
Gray’s girlfriend was the last person to see him when she left the home an hour earlier.
We’re getting into the teams capable of huge jumps if everything goes perfectly.
Look at the Arizona Cardinals. If Sam Bradford can stay healthy, he’s a guy who popped off for 346 yards and three touchdowns a year ago in one game and will enjoy targets such as Larry Fitzgerald.
And it just might work.
Running back Devonta Freeman shouldn’t be playing through injury like he did a year ago. Jones is still the best in football. And in comes first-round rookie Calvin Ridley, the smoothest route-runner in the draft class, which gives him a serious shot at having an early impact.
Giving Ryan a reliable slot option to take pressure off Jones and Mohamed Sanu should space the offense and fix its timing, perhaps getting him back to 30-plus-touchdown territory in the process.
A third-round pick by Pittsburgh in 2013, Wheaton signed a two-year, $11 million contract with Chicago in his first taste of free agency last March.
After undergoing shoulder surgery late in 2016, his Bears debut was marred by an appendectomy during training camp, a broken finger entering the season and a torn groin in October that effectively sabotaged the remainder of his 2017 campaign.
By the time his nightmare season was over, Wheaton had managed to turn 17 targets into just three receptions for 51 yards in 11 games. It was no surprise when he was released in March, falling victim to Chicago’s overhaul at the position.
Wheaton, 27, won’t be guaranteed a roster spot in Philadelphia. Alshon Jeffery, Nelson Agholor and Mike Wallace appear to be locked in as the top three receivers, with deep threat Mack Hollins as a wild card. In which case, Wheaton will likely have to beat out a cast of Cheap Full Dye Softball Jerseys characters including Shelton Gibson, Bryce Treggs and Marquess Wilson Cheap Goalie Jerseys Soccer for the final spot on the depth chart.
Don’t sleep on the Los Angeles Chargers.
