Though Mac Jones did not have an immaculate day of practice -- understanding the Patriots are one day into a three-day mandatory minicamp -- it's also fair to wonder how long the quarterback job in New England will be Newton's if there are more days like Monday.
Deciding on the NFL's best safety in 2021 was a difficult thing to do, as the position requires so many different attributes. But Simmons, who got a new four-year, $61 million contract from the Broncos in March, certainly qualifies. He's great at everything from blowing up run fits to bring pressure on the blitz to deep coverage, and though he was prone to the occasional red zone touchdown allowed in 2020, everything else was top-notch. In 2020, Simmons played two snaps on the defensive line, 319 in the box, 619 at free safety, 144 in the slot, and four at outside cornerback. Last season, Simmons allowed 40 of 52 receptions for 420 yards, 201 yards after the catch, seven touchdowns, five interceptions, three pass breakups, and an opponent passer rating of 99.8. That doesn't tell the whole story, though -- against passes of 20 or more air yards, Simmons was as good a deep eraser as there was in the NFL, allowing two catches on five targets for 72 yards, no touchdowns, and two interceptions. Simmons' ability to help his teammates recover from coverage issues deep downfield is a huge part of his game.Buffalo Bills for Face Masks

Defensive tackle Chris Jones may see some time at defensive end for the Kansas City Chiefs.
"We've been bold at times, maybe too bold, had too many options in the past, and we simplified," Hall said. "We were one of the first teams to completely abandon our original colors and we were purple and teal, and for years, we had MLB asking us to consider changing our colors. We already had the Rockies with the purple. The purple never really matched up, and on TV, it looked more blue. The purple and teal was somewhat outdated.

• Taijuan Walker recorded a 12:0 K:BB line Tuesday night and sits with a 2.12 ERA and 1.00 WHIP on the season. It’s taken far longer than expected and after most had given up hope, but the former prospect is finally living up to his previously high expectations. Walker will start giving up more homers, but his strong CSW suggests his 2021 is no fluke (and comes with a fastball spin rate in just the 22nd percentile). It also helps throwing in the NL and baseball’s best pitcher’s park.Atlanta Braves face coverings
After both teams failed to score through seven innings, the Giants finally broke the seal when LaMonte Wade Jr. singled home Curt Casali, who started the frame on second base.

The Rockies are expected to activate Trevor Story off the injured list on Thursday, essentially starting the countdown to his final few weeks with the franchise that drafted him 45th overall 10 years ago. Story was batting only .255/.322/.424 through 50 games until being placed on the shelf with elbow tightness. Within the next seven or so weeks, Story will likely become the second franchise pillar to be traded in less than five months, following in the footsteps of Nolan Arenado. The Rockies have no choice but to trade Story, who will enter a star-studded free-agent class of shortstops over the offseason. This is a mess of their own making. -- GonzalezChicago White Sox face coverings

Underscoring the excitement around the 2021 team is the impending return of ace Chris Sale, who has not pitched in a game since August 2019.

“Even if you had a good ERA, and traditional pitching numbers — low walks, stuff like that — you might get passed up by a guy who has a worse ERA and more walks, but more upside in terms of his carry is 20 inches and his fastball spin rate is like 2,800,” said a pitcher in a third organization who has spent time between the majors and the minors in 2021.

Newton showed that he can still run the ball, accumulating 592 yards and 12 touchdowns on the ground last season. However, it’s his job to throw the ball effectively as a quarterback. If he can channel his 2015 self again, he’ll be able to delay the Mac Jones project for at least a couple of years.
