TAJ GIBSON IS GETTING BETTER WITH AGE

For the most part, the Grizzlies were universally praised for their offseason acquisition of Garrett Temple, as the veteran wing can provide more defense to “Grit & Grind 2.0”. With Memphis seemingly all in on returning to the playoffs in the upcoming season, adding a player like Temple for the cost of two young, inconsistent players in Ben McLemore and Deyonta Davis looked ...

Aug 21, 2018 | by Jim McBride, Boston Globe

FOXBOROUGH — Joe Thuney is one gutsy player.

A mainstay on the Patriots offensive line the last two seasons, Thuney has started every game at left guard since he arrived in New England as a third-round pick in 2016.

Thuney rarely takes a play off – he’s played 99 percent of New England’s offensive snaps the last two seasons – and that includes practice. ...
