Two of Miami’s most prominent defensive leaders off of last year’s team, LB Kyle Van Noy and SAF Bobby McCain, were cut this offseason, leaving a void in leadership that Miami will need to see filled. The direct replacements for both don’t seem like admirable places to find it, either. Van Noy will likely be replaced by a combination of LB Andrew Van Ginkel and rookie Jaelan Phillips. And McCain is set to be replaced, or so it appears, by rookie Jevon Holland. Even if Phillips and Holland are home runs for Miami, they’re not great leadership resources as NFL rookies.NFL Arizona Cardinals Team Face Coverings

Harris only has two years of experience as a receiver, catching 39 passes for 987 yards and nine touchdowns from 2019-2020 at UCF. He got a late start in football, too, after primarily playing soccer in high school. At 24, he was one of the oldest prospects in the draft, but he was also one of the most athletic.

Rodgers missed organized team activities for the first time in his career this spring, but those are voluntary. By skipping the start of minicamp, Rodgers failed to meet mandatory attendance for the first time in his career. He's in danger of being fined $93,085 for his absence after forfeiting a $500,000 workout bonus for missing OTAs, though the Packers could excuse his absence and thus avoid the fine. (Those fines break down as $15,515 for an unexcused absence on the first day, $31,030 for the second and $46,540 for the third.)Baltimore Ravens Face masks

You could put Mathieu on a few top defensive lists, as he has proven to be one of the most effectively versatile defensive players in the NFL. He certainly merits high praise for his work as both a free and strong safety -- last season, Mathieu played 60 snaps on the defensive line, 399 in the box, 287 at free safety, 414 in the slot, and 25 at outside corner. Mathieu also allows defensive coordinator Steve Spagnuolo to run all kinds of coverage disguises because Mathieu is so adept at moving from position to position pre- and post-snap. In 2020 overall, Mathieu allowed 45 catches on 69 targets for 581 yards, 257 yards after the catch, four touchdowns, seven interceptions, two pass breakups, and an opponent passer rating of 71.3. Mathieu's breakneck play style will lead to the occasional big play allowed, but when you can bait a quarterback as Mathieu does to Baker Mayfield here... well, the Chiefs will take that all day.NFL Pittsburgh Steelers Team Face Coverings

What should we expect regarding Jamal Adams' participation? The Pro Bowl strong safety was among the Seahawks' veterans who stayed away for the start of the voluntary offseason program, but he didn't report at the start of the final week of OTAs like many others did. The Seahawks and Adams' agent have started discussions about a new contract, a source has told ESPN, but they appear to be a long ways away from getting something done. Adams would be subject to fines for skipping mandatory minicamp, though he could always show up and not practice as Bobby Wagner did early in training camp two years ago while his contract was being finalized. These three days could be an indication of what Adams plans to do if his deal isn't done by late July. -- Brady HendersonNFL Washington Redskins (Football Team) Team Face Coverings

To outlast Dallas in seven games, one of Lue’s most influential tactical changes was calling on Batum to start as part of a smaller lineup beginning with Game 4. When Batum sat while Luka Doncic played, the Clippers were picked apart, outscored by 44 points in 87 minutes. Yet during the 194 minutes that the young Slovenian superstar and veteran Frenchman overlapped, the advantage flipped, with the Clippers outscoring Dallas by 37. In the last four games, Batum deflected a team-high 17 passes.Chicago Bulls face coverings

Look at the numbers and you’ll see plenty of reasons the Phoenix Suns have a commanding 2-0 lead over the Denver Nuggets in their second-round playoff series. All five starters have scored in double figures in both games, showcasing a very balanced offensive attack that’s making the Nuggets pay from every angle. Lopsided second halves show a home team that’s outscored Denver 65-47 in two third quarters and 71-56 in two fourth quarters.

The Clippers will try to use those same small-ball lineups to play Gobert off the court, but that may not work for L.A. this time.

Second, Gobert is a good scorer inside and will punish the Clippers for going small in a way Porzingis could not.Los Angeles Lakers face coverings

Remember, the knee injury which occurred, I believe in late January of 2020, it was still lingering in the bubble. This is after months and months of being off, and I think the Celtics front office was looking for a way to get out from under that contract. They ultimately were not able to do it despite having conversations with multiple teams over the last several months…Charlotte Hornets face coverings

Because of this, his free agency comes at an interesting and potentially complicated time. For starters, the Mavs will be handing Doncic a max contract that will most likely exceed $200 million thanks to his All-NBA selection last year and a likely selection this year. The extension won’t kick in until 2022-23, but it leaves less time to land an impactful free agent on a long-term deal, especially without moving Porzingis.
