"I'm a defensive back. I can play all five spots on the backend," McCain said in May. "There's not somewhere you can't put me in. Whether it's safety, corner, or nickel -- no matter the spot -- I'll do my best to perform and win."

The Dolphins have pillaged the Texans already. Why not acquire their franchise quarterback? The move would involve a first-round pick and 2020 first-rounder Tua Tagovailoa. It could involve a significant piece other than quarterback if third-round pick Davis Mills shows any promise.NFL Dallas Cowboys Team Face Coverings

Spiller's experience as a pro was largely a disappointment — except for 2012. That season, he posted 1,244 rushing yards on just 207 attempts, which converts to a yards-per-carry average of 6.0 (to put that into context, Nick Chubb led all running backs this past season with a YPC of 5.6). Oh, and Spiller also added 43 catches for 459 yards, finding the end zone eight times in all. Fitzpatrick likely appreciated all of that help.

On paper, this looks like the best roster they’ve had since a promising 6-2 start to the 2018 campaign. That said, even our best projections have them finishing in the 8-9 or 9-8 range this season. Getting back to the playoffs may require a bold, franchise-changing move.

“The defense has just abandoned us at all of the wrong times,’’ Hazen says. “The frustrating part for us is that’s not how we intended to build our club.

The Nationals managed to put across just one run Wednesday after scoring 44 combined runs over their previous five games. Seven stranded runners and an 0-for-7 team effort with runners in scoring position spoiled a bounce-back start for Erick Fedde, who allowed only one run in six innings on 84 pitches.

They blew it with pitching. They blew it with fielding. They blew it with managing. They left it in the hands of an umpire who blew it with the worst call of this Dodgers season.

With Leonard and San Francisco 49ers linebacker Fred Warner both up for new deals, there was a theme throughout the offseason as to which domino would fall first. Most would assume the first deal that gets done would set the new market at linebacker, thus saving money on the contracts to follow for other players.

It should. There was a strike that season. Every team was stocked with walk-ons, scabs, strike breakers, whatever you want to call them, during three weeks of replacement games. Washington did have a quarterback question (Williams or Jay Schroeder?) as the season wound down. And the Redskins went on to win Super Bowl XXII.
