The Texas native says on the syndicated show “In Depth With Graham Bensinger,” which airs this weekend, “I remember being in the car — the taxis are driving crazy, the horns, there are people everywhere. And I thought Houston was fast.”
The “GMA” host, whose first NFL gig was with the Giants in the early ’90s, said that on his first visit, “I just went to my hotel room, stayed in my room until they sent someone to pick me up and take me where I needed to go.”
The Reds are 2-12 (or worse) for the first time since 1931. Their minus-49 run differential is the worst in the majors, and their minus-47 through their first 14 games is the worst in franchise history. At this pace, the Reds will pick in the top five of the MLB draft in four consecutive years (2016 to 2019). — Woolums
As terrible as the Marlins are, can they afford to give Lewis Brinson a full season’s worth of patience if he fails to make any progress? His .316 OPS through Sunday is worst in the NL, he has yet to register an extra-base hit, his well-hit average of .049 suggests he isn’t even making hard contact, and he’s whiffing more than 30 percent of the time. — Kahrl
Jefferson injured his shoulder during the Gators’ spring game on Saturday.
Jefferson arrived at Florida as a five-star prospect and the nation’s No. 2 defensive end in the 2015 class. He considered leaving early for the NFL after last season but opted to return to the Gators for his senior year.
In three seasons at Florida, Jefferson has registered 28.5 tackles for loss and 9.5 sacks. He led the Gators in both categories last year (13.5 TFLs, 4.5 sacks).
With Florida utilizing a 3-4 scheme under new defensive coordinator Todd Grantham, Jefferson had lined up as the Gators’ edge rusher this spring.
If Jefferson’s injury sidelines him for the early part of the 2018 season, the Gators likely will turn to junior defensive linemen Jabari Zuniga and Jachai Polite, who have combined for 25.5 TFLs and 13 sacks over the past two seasons, to help out on the outside. Junior Antonneous Clayton and redshirt freshman Zachary Carter also could get reps at Jefferson’s position.
