Around the NFL: Rookie quarterbacks

I see on the Sports Illustrated website that Tampa Bay general manager Jason Licht was wondering out loud about the 18 interceptions Jameis Winston threw last year.

Factoid: Kelvin Benjamin

From a distance, it seems like Kelvin Benjamin had a good rookie season. He did, in fact, exceed expectations. He caught 9 touchdowns, and some of them were pretty spectacular – using his size to catch high balls. Most memorably, he had 2 TDs in the playoff loss at Seattle (plus another near touchdown where he caught it over Richard Sherman but didn’t get his feet in bounds).  more »

Factoid: Chris Johnson

It’s not easy busting loose for long rushing touchdowns. Most rushing scores come from 1-3 yards of the end zone, it’s rare that you regularly see running backs scoring from long range. But some backs are better than others at scoring touchdowns from longer range.   more »
