ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) — George Paton inherited a snakebitten secondary when he succeeded John Elway as the Denver Broncos general manager last winter.
Now, it's the Broncos' biggest strength heading into their opener at the Meadowlands against the New York Giants on Sunday.
CHICAGO BEARS (8-9)
New faces: QB Justin Fields, QB Andy Dalton, OT Teven Jenkins, WR Marquise Goodwin, RB Damien Williams, OL Elijah Wilkinson, LB Alec Ogletree.
Key losses: QB Mitchell Trubisky, CB Kyle Fuller, LT Charles Leno Jr., RT Bobby Massie, KR Cordarrelle Patterson, defensive coordinator Chuck Pagano.
RENTON, Wash. (AP) — When training camp began, Seattle Seahawks coach Pete Carroll wanted to see a true competition develop at center.
He watched Ethan Pocic handle the position for most of the 2020 season.
Much as the Bears considered Sunday’s division title-clinching victory a nice accomplishment but not the ultimate achievement, so too was their reaction to having five players voted to the Pro Bowl.
