The Tampa Bay Buccaneers keep adding weapons for Jameis Winston and snagged a reliable deep threat with the No. 84 pick in the 2017 NFL draft, claiming wide receiver Chris Godwin out of Penn State.
Just look at what he did in the Rose Bowl earlier this year. Godwin did his part to keep Penn State in the game, despite ultimately falling to the Trojans 52-49. He totaled 187 yards and two touchdowns on nine receptions — averaging over 20 yards a catch.
The Clippers have had a formula for relative success in the Doc Rivers era: Keep Chris Paul, Blake Griffin, and DeAndre Jordan together and make sure the moving parts all fit.
Their issue has always been at the small forward spot. The Clippers have had 13 different small forwards on the roster since the 2013-14 season. Some of those names include Danny Granger, Jared Dudley, Stephen Jackson, Hedo Turkoglu, and Matt Barnes.
At the end of the season there seemed to be a rush to name Nikita Kucherov MVP of the Tampa Bay Lightning. It’s understandable, the soft-spoken Russian had a career year with 40 goals and 85 points. (C’mon you couldn’t even pick up one measly assist to match your uniform number? Sad.)

There are two ways to look at this. The first is that if Jose Abreu, Jose Quintana, Todd Frazier, Melky Cabrera, Tim Anderson, and Carlos Rodon aren’t contributing much now, just imagine how good the White Sox will be when they all snap out of it! Abreu can hit a dozen homers next month and carry the team. Quintana could rattle Cheap USA Jerseys off five one-run outings in a row. If the White Sox are good now, just imagine when the rest of the team starts to show up.
