Taj Gibson steals show in Bulls’ victory against Magic

Coach Tom Thibodeau doesn’t hand out praise easily. So for Taj Gibson to earn the description ‘‘huge’’ four times for his play in the Bulls’ 96-94 victory Wednesday against the Orlando Magic said something.

Defensive tackle Gerald McCoy has always been one of Roy Miller's biggest fans.

As an Oklahoma City teenager, McCoy looked up to Miller, the Bucs nose tackle, watching his Killeen (Texas) High highlights from afar. And when the two were recruited by Oklahoma, McCoy dreamed they'd play alongside each other.

Dec 29, 2012 | by Anthony Chiang, Sun Sentinel

Since Armon Binns was claimed by the Miami Dolphins on Dec. 10, he has worked hard to make a good impression.

"I stay after practices and come in before meetings to go over the game plan, to go over the signals, and make sure I'm ready," the 6-foot-3, 209-pound wide receiver said.
