The Buccaneers released Doug Martin, and coach Dirk Koetter is growing a little tired of a skill-specific committee against which it’s easier to decipher run or pass based on who’s in the backfield. Lewis can be effective playing off Jameis Winston throwing downfield. The salary cap isn’t an issue, either, with more than $71 million available to spend.
With Michael Crabtree on the outs, new coach Jon Gruden should look at Landry as a reliable possession type for Derek Carr. The QB and Landry would be a perfect fit in the short passing game. With Seth Roberts, Oakland has had a blip in the slot. With Landry, it can blast off at the position.
The brightest spot in the Bears’ injury-riddled receiving corps last season was slot man Kendall Wright. But Wright is an older and lesser free agent than Landry in 2018. Mitchell Trubisky needs a secure go-to guy in his first season under Matt Nagy and Mark Helfrich.
A deep threat is also needed, so the Rams’ Sammy Watkins and the Seahawks’ Paul Richardson also are bound to be on Chicago’s free-agency radar. Landry is a more sound investment than both to pay immediate dividends in the intermediate passing game with a second-year QB.
In perhaps the biggest blow of all, the men’s hockey team didn’t even make it to the final courtesy of a stunning 4-3 loss to Germany on Friday night in the semifinals. For a nation already in despair over no men’s or women’s curling medals and the women’s hockey team losing to the rival Americans in a shootout in the gold-medal game, this one won’t be easy to swallow as Canada’s bid to win three consecutive Olympic golds fell horribly short.
Through 14 days, 10 of Canada’s best-ever 27 medals are gold.
Losing to Germany guaranteed none will be in hockey.
