As a busy Thursday for rookie signings winds down, the Texans don’t have any more work to do on this front. They reached agreements with each member of their draft class Thursday night, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports (on Twitter). Here’s the full rundown:
Canha then ripped a two-out single with two men on, scoring both runs. It came immediately after German and Yankees manager Aaron Boone complained to plate umpire James Hoye about a pitch they felt was a strike three but he called a ball.
Gregorius came into the game 0-for-his-last-28 and went hitless in his first two at-bats. Then he singled in the fifth inning. When he got to first base, he turned to coach Reggie Willits and yelled, Wow!
Dungy, 62, will be honored during the Bucs’ Sept. 24 home game on Monday Night Football against the Pittsburgh Steelers, the team Dungy played for in 1977-78.
I am very humbled and thankful for this honor, Dungy wrote on Twitter on Tuesday afternoon. I will always be grateful to Malcolm Glazer and the entire Buccaneers organization for all they have done for me and my family. Looking forward to September 24.
Dungy’s honor comes a year after Jon Gruden, but it was his sustained success that set the table for the Bucs’ magical 2002 season.
He undoubtedly loves it even more now. Turay became the 52nd overall pick in last month’s NFL Draft and now the Colts are hoping they can take this still-raw defensive end and turn him into a pass-rushing terror.
There’s some debate about how tall an order that will be. It isn’t difficult to find those who think Turay was drafted too early for a guy with limited statistical production and a history of shoulder injuries. But the Colts are all-in on Turay’s potential, sort of like Rutgers was without having seen him play in an actual game.
