Twins slugger Eddie Rosario is quickly becoming one of MLB’s best hitters.
Though not yet a household name — mainly because of the small market he plays in — Rosario has been one of baseball’s most dangerous hitters this season. He hit three home runs Sunday, including a dramatic walkoff to help Minnesota defeat the Indians, 7-5.
It kind of sucked, Leggett said of last year. My rookie year, I want to come into the NFL and I want to play, but it didn’t happen like that last year. Hopefully, now I’m good to go. I feel great. I get a chance at it this year.
Leggett is part of a wide-open competition. The Jets’ top tight end from last year was Austin Seferian-Jenkins. He signed with the Jaguars in free agency. That left a tight-end room with Leggett, Eric Tomlinson, Neal Sterling, Clive Walford and Bucky Hodges. The Jets added Chris Herndon in the draft.
The Jets did not go out and sign any big-name tight end who would automatically be the starter. Instead, they felt good enough about the players on the roster to let them fight it out this summer.
The Lions used the 10th overall pick in the 2014 NFL draft on Ebron and he was a huge disappointment — especially considering that the 11th pick was Pro Bowl left tackle Taylor Lewan, the 12th pick was Pro Bowl wide receiver Odell Beckham and the 13th pick was Pro Bowl defensive tackle Aaron Donald. But there’s talent there, and Reich is hoping to get something out of that talent that Jim Caldwell never could.
Cody Latimer was heading down a wrong path, one that could have cost him his NFL career. As Giants general manager Dave Gettleman likes to say, there are those who play professional football and those who actually are professional football players. Latimer was getting paid to play, but he hardly prepared like a pro.
Nowadays, he is vying to be the Giants’ No. 3 wide receiver, and one look at him is all you need to believe it could happen. Despite their physical gifts, Odell Beckham Jr. and Sterling Shepard fail to reach 6-foot tall. The others trying to get into the mix — Roger Lewis, Russell Shepard — are also smallish targets, as is Hunter Sharp. Latimer is a 6-foot-2, 215-pounder who adds a different dimension as a size-speed athlete.
