Spencer Ware’s season is over before it even started.
The Chiefs running back is expected to miss the entire regular season after being diagnosed with a torn PCL in addition to damage to the LCL in his right knee, team trainer Rick Burkholder revealed Sunday.
But that’s exactly what ESPN tried to get Thomas to do in an upcoming E:60 episode. In a teaser, the network aired a clip where they asked Thomas to name all 18 starting quarterbacks he’s protected since joining the franchise in 2007.
There are even more quarterbacks he’s blocked for that didn’t start, but let’s not make this too difficult.
The good thing is even Thomas is able to laugh about the ridiculousness of the situation he’s been in for so long. In his 10 years with the team, the Browns have gone 48-112 with their 18 starting quarterbacks.
Even better, the list isn’t done growing. Brock Osweiler and DeShone Kizer both have strong chances to start at some point this season.
Despite Allen missing 19 games in the two years prior to free agency, the Texans signed him to a lucrative contract worth $7 million a year. Allen was never really a full-time starter prior to this contract, and it should have been no surprise when he missed two games and failed to live up to his salary last season.
The Titans’ contract with Ryan looks to be a classic example of a team overpaying a good — but not great — player. Most were surprised when Ryan was able to blow past the second-tier cornerback market with this $10 million-per-year contract. The normally low-spending Titans must have extremely high expectations for him to have made this investment.
