But so much of this story remains fodder for interpretation and speculation. Did the incident stem from depression? Substance abuse? A brain injury? None of those? All three? Whichever, it’s undeniably a sad and troubling chapter in a storied career.
Working our way through the defense, we move off the line and into the linebackers. Most teams tend to deploy two full-time starting off-ball these days, even in 4-3 alignments. That’s because nickel defense is used more often than base defense which replaces a linebacker with a defensive back.NFL Baltimore Ravens Team Face Coverings

There are many other elements of the game that teams typically either can't control or can't directly control. Two of them should improve for the Niners in 2021. The first is allowing defensive touchdowns. With Nick Mullens and C.J. Beathard taking plenty of reps, the 49ers turned the ball over 31 times, which was the second-highest total in football. While that would be bad enough, they then allowed teams to score four defensive touchdowns, including two in one game against Washington. Offenses can protect the football, but there's no evidence of an offense being particularly good at stopping or allowing long returns. The Niners should turn the ball over less frequently next season, and with that, they should allow fewer touchdowns on offense.
“Shifts, formations, protections,” Fields told USA TODAY Sports of how he organizes the intricacies in his head. “You’ve kind of just got to break that play down, picture it out and picture the play before you say it.

On the opposite end of the spectrum, the 2020 Texans were about as hapless as it gets. By any measure you can find, they were a disaster on defense. Anthony Weaver's unit ranked 27th in points allowed, 30th in points allowed per drive and 30th in DVOA. A composite of the quarterbacks who played the 4-12 Texans last season would have posted a better passer rating than Patrick Mahomes in 2020, and that came in a year in which Houston faced starters such as Brandon Allen, Jake Luton and Mitchell Trubisky. Opposing quarterbacks completed 69.7% of their passes against the Texans while averaging 8.0 yards per attempt and throwing 30 touchdowns against just three picks.

49ers defensive back Jimmie Ward just has one question: Why does McVay always target him in coverage?
A trendy ancillary piece among New England’s receiving corps, 24-year-old Meyers was thrust into the fire in place of Harry last year and responded with a team-high 30.2% target share from Week 8 on. The former first-rounder has since requested a trade despite comical leverage after recording just 45 catches and 5.1 yards per target under McDaniels through two seasons. Essentially guaranteed the No. 2 receiver role behind Agholor no matter Harry’s availability, the latter’s departure would still free 18 routes per game for Meyers, who has yet to score a single touchdown in the NFL, to potentially soak up. Bourne figures to be a nuisance in the red zone more so than a legitimate weekly option for Best-Ball and re-draft scoring.
Two quarterbacks, Ken Stabler and Jake Plummer, will have to share our entry for this reptilian moniker. Stabler was dubbed "The Snake" by his junior high football coach in reaction to his elusive, zig-zagging running style. Plummer received the nickname as a nod to professional wrestler Jake "The Snake" Roberts, who had adopted the nickname as a tribute to Stabler. Stabler earned four Pro Bowl selections and won a Super Bowl with the Oakland Raiders before winding down his 15-year NFL career with the Houston Oilers and New Orleans Saints. Plummer threw for 29,253 yards 161 touchdowns in a decade-long career with the Arizona Cardinals and Denver Broncos.NFL Tennessee Titans Team Face Coverings

Ngakoue also appeared on the list, coming in at No. 24. The Raiders were one of the few teams to have multiple defensive ends on the list.

Oail Andrew Phillips Jr. got his nickname as a child after an incident where he was stung by bumblebees — or "bummel bees" as they were called by his family in Orange, Texas. He was dubbed Bummel, which later was shortened to Bum, according to his son, former NFL head coach Wade Phillips. Bum was a fine head coach in his own right, guiding the Luv Ya Blue-era Houston Oilers to consecutive AFC Championship Games in the 1978 and 1979 seasons.

Typically, this isn't a repeatable skill. If you're not great on first and second down, it's not sustainable to turn yourself into the league's best defense afterward. The Dolphins were inconsistent from down to down; they ranked 29th in defensive EPA on first down, eighth on second down, then topped the NFL on third down. Their personnel might be better equipped to play on passing downs than they are on first-and-10, but that's not enough to explain the gap between being the league's fourth-worst defense and its best unit.NFL Cleveland Browns Team Face Coverings

In 2020, Baker Mayfield thrived in Kevin Stefanski’s system. Stefanski carried over the scheme he ran with the Minnesota Vikings as offensive coordinator. With Mayfield’s mobility factor, Stefanski took advantage with a heavy play-action attack and motion pre-snap with fakes and bootlegs to open up shots downfield. Like the system Mayfield played in at Oklahoma under Lincoln Riley, the running game sets up the passing attack-RPO and play-action. Stefanski stayed with the wide zone concepts implemented by the Vikings and utilized many with the Browns. Similar to the wide zone-blocking used for Dalvin Cook with Minnesota, Stefanski used with Nick Chubb in Cleveland.

The No. 2 overall pick in the 2007 NFL draft, Calvin Johnson checked into his first Detroit Lions training camp measuring 6-foot-5 and 239 pounds with 4.39 speed in the 40-yard dash and a 42½-inch vertical jump. Fellow Lions wide receiver Roy Williams knew the rookie was special and deserved a grandiose nickname, so he dubbed Johnson as Megatron from "The Transformers" series. Johnson lived up to the name, becoming one of the great wideouts in pro football history. He registered 731 career receptions for 11,619 yards and 83 touchdowns in nine seasons with Detroit.

Arguably no returning player at safety looks like a better fit as the hybrid linebacker in subpackages than Scott, a seventh-round pick from a year ago. His size (6-2, 202) and collegiate experience in a versatile role give him the potential to take over snaps left by Raven Greene. The Packers think he can cover the slot and play with physicality against the run. Scott was productive on special teams as a rookie, delivering six tackles. He is an under-the-radar candidate to take the second-year leap and become a contributor on defense.NFL New England Patriots Team Face Coverings
One of the most interesting things on the roster this summer is what happens behind Mixon and Perine. Trayveon Williams, after all, has flashed major upside as a three-down presence who could have easily taken Bernard's role. In fact, he could always still win that role -- but the Bengals had to re-up on Perine because Williams hasn't been able to stay healthy consistently. Things could go the other way too. Williams could always feel some roster heat because the team drafted Michigan's Chris Evans late. He was considered a pretty big steal/value there and feels like a Bernard-type for the offense. Jacques Patrick and Pooka Williams are on the bubble. It's Williams, though, who already got a shout-out from the coaches for learning how to do returns on special teams. That sort of versatility should give him an edge. For now, the best bet is the Bengals keep four: Mixon, Perine, Williams and Evans. But Pooka could be a fifth if they go short at another position.

They also added that he threw a player out from the parking lot.
