1. What is Gene and Tom Golsen, with the 1926 Louisville Colonels?
If you guessed the answer for that question is the last and only time the Pro Football Hall of Fame has record of twin brothers playing regular-season games on the same professional football team,cheap nike nfl jerseys china take a bow. It also means Patriots defensive backs Devin and Jason McCourty have a chance to do something in 2018 that hasn’t been done in 92 years.
That’s one of the fun storylines as a result of the Patriots’ acquiring cornerback Jason McCourty — who is expected to compete for a starting role opposite of Stephon Gilmore — in a trade Thursday. Tom Golsen played in one game for the Cardinals in that ’26 season, while Gene played in three.
And while it faces some longer odds, this bit of “twin Patriots history” actually has two chances to happen in 2018 because Jacob and Cody Hollister are also on the roster.
Jacob played 15 regular-season games last season as an undrafted free agent out of Wyoming and shows promise as a developmental tight end/special-teamer, while Cody spent 2017 on the practice squad after signing as an undrafted free agent out of Arkansas and hopes to carve out a niche as a reserve receiver/core special-teamer.
2. When newly signed defensive end Adrian Clayborn was with the Falcons over the past three seasons, he played mostly on the right side, which traces to how he suffered from Erb’s palsy at birth (he had lost some movement and had some weakness in his right arm). That Clayborn has overcome that to have a productive college and pro career has been inspiring to many, nfl nike jersey cheap and was one thing that stood out to me when communicating with those who have coached Clayborn. “Tough-minded competitor, resilient, quiet in the locker room but a respected teammate,” one said. The Falcons drafted Takk McKinley in the first round last year, which made Clayborn expendable in Atlanta.
