The career of (perhaps) future Hall of Fame
receiver Hines Ward overlapped for two years with the career of (perhaps) future Hall of Fame receiver Antonio Brown. Ward has noticed Brown’s behavior in recent weeks http://www.buccaneerslockerroom.com/authentic-vernon-hargreaves-iii-jersey , and Ward isn’t afraid to share his views on the distractions Brown has created, from a sideline outburst to a Twitter tussle to not showing up for work on Monday.““I would like for him to just focus on football, find a way to get this thing back on track in Pittsburgh,” Ward said. “Like I said, it’s all about winning football games, and that should be the main priority in all the players’ careers.”Getting their first win of the season should be the Steelers’ only priority for now Bryan Anger Jersey , because a surprisingly potent Tampa Bay team is waiting for them on Monday night. But one of Brown’s priorities at some point soon may be to figure out why Ward chose to call him out publicly, given that they are former teammates — and given that Ward last year was working with the team, and rumored to be on track to become the receivers coach.The answer may be simple: Ward likely said what he thought needed to be said, in order to help Brown get himself and the team pointed in the right direction.

Oh, and there’s a long snapper.2019 COMBINE SPECIALISTSNAMESCHOOLNAMESCHOOLBEST IN CLASS: MATT GAY, UTAHHas leg strength and experience in kickoffs Gerald McCoy Jersey , field goals and as a punter.Scored on over 70% of his tries from 50-yards or more and made all but one field goal attempt under 40-yards.MOST TO PROVE: MATT GAY, UTAHMess with the mechanics of something and you mess with the production of it. As Lance Zierlein pointed out in his profile of Gay, he’s got an awkward and slow approach to the ball as he attempts his field goals.This resulted in multiple blocked kicks, and will do the same at the NFL level. This means, Gay is going to have to change his approach. Hopefully he’s already working on it. And if he has been, he’ll need to show teams he can get from snap to kick much better than he did at Utah while keeping accuracy degradation to a minimum.MOST LIKELY BUCS DRAFT PICK: JAKE BAILEY, PUNTERRuss Isabella-USA TODAY SportsWith head coach Bruce Arians there’s a good-to-great chance that every drive crossing the 50-yard line will result in either a field goal try or a fourth-down conversion attempts.So, Bailey’s struggles as a pooch kicker shouldn’t play too much into his early years as an NFL punter.What the Bucs will like is his ability to boom the ball and pin defenses deep into their own territory when punting from negative field position.As a late round pick or even a priority free-agent, he’ll cost much less than Anger, and already has the tools necessary to give the Buccaneers what they’re looking for in a punter for 2019 and beyond.
