Running back Benny Cunningham visited the Saints but re-signed with the Bears, his representation, SIG Sports, tweeted Monday.
Cunningham, 27, is a core special teams player and third-down back. He played 175 snaps on offense and 229 on special teams last season for the Bears.
In five NFL seasons, Cunningham has more receiving yards (992) than rushing yards (777).
In fact, in February during a TNT broadcast, NBA Hall of Fame center Shaquille O’Neal revealed that he used to “foul shave” during games in Denver — i.e. he’d intentionally pick up quick fouls to avoid having to fight through playing in the city’s thin air.
“The whole game,” O’Neal said, according to the Denver Post. “Because I used to be so tired I couldn’t breathe. Here are three quick fouls. (Former Lakers head coach) Phil’s (Jackson) like, ‘I know what you’re doing.’ I’m like, ‘Yeah, I’m foul shaving. I’m not putting up with all this.'”
Perhaps it’s a psychological edge more than anything?
Enunwa missed the year after having neck surgery, but Schefter adds that he now has full range of motion and is expected to be eased into all activities once the Jets start their offseason work. He had 58 catches for 857 yards and four touchdowns during the 2016 season.
Enunwa will join Robby Anderson, Jermaine Kearse, Terrelle Pryor, ArDarius Stewart, Devin Smith and Chad Hansen as receiving options for the Jets to consider as they work toward setting their roster for the 2018 season.
“To me, that is mind-blowing,” Malone says. “Again, the NBA can’t keep everybody happy, and I’m sure a lot of different things go into it, but when you have as many tough games as we’ve had and schedule alert games …”
The NBA schedule is a “huge math problem,” as Evan Wasch, a senior vice president of basketball strategy and analytics for the NBA, described it during the 2016 MIT Sloan Sports Analytics Conference in Boston.
