The Buccaneers added to their defensive line Thursday, sending a third- and fourth-round pick in the 2018 draft to the Giants for Jason Pierre-Paul and a 2018 fourth-round pick.
Tampa Bay needed help on the defensive edge, but at pick No. 7 in the draft the Bucs had virtually no shot at landing Chubb.
Jason is an elite-level edge rusher who will make an immediate impact on our defense, Bucs general manager Jason Licht told the team’s website. We are adding a two-time Pro Bowler who is passionate about the game and has established himself as one of the league’s premier defensive ends. Jason is an incredibly hard-working playmaker on the defensive front with a unique skill set that allows him to stay on the field in both rushing and passing situations.
Indians RHP Josh Tomlin (0-1, 24.00) had his turn in the rotation pushed back a day after experiencing back soreness in his start against the Angels when he allowed four home runs in three innings. Tigers LHP Matthew Boyd (0-1, 1.50 ERA), who has a 1.91 ERA in five career games at Progressive Field.
Insensitive comments from McNair are nothing new.
The vast majority of the Texans team knelt prior to their game against the Seahawks this past season in protest to McNair’s we can’t have the inmates running the prison comments at a recent meeting between NFL owners and executives.
According to ex-Texans offensive lineman Duane Brown, McNair has a history of questionable remarks.
In an interview with ProFootballTalk, Brown said McNair talked to the team in 2008 after Barak Obama was elected as president.
He was visibly upset about it, Brown said. He said, ‘I know a lot of y’all are happy right now, but it’s not the outcome that some of us were looking for.’ That was very shocking to me.
