Fournette: Derrius Guice is going to have great year

Being a rookie in the NFL is unknown territory for each and every new entry to the league.

There’s the new city. New teammates. New playbook and coaches. And about 10-12 games in, the rookie wall. Considering all of these factors, as well as where each rookie fits with his respective team, it’s difficult to project how the new guy might fare.

I know that rookie year, Fournette said. It’s a long season from the draft, then to minicamp and then to Brandon Mebane Jersey (training) camp and then the season. It’s a long process.

Should we expect something similar from Guice? No, but if his LSU numbers are any indication (Guice finished with 3,074 career yards at LSU, fifth most in school history and one spot off Fournette’s 3,830 yards), he stands to make an impact that could enter the same zip code as that of Fournette.

The Bears will wear the orange duds — which some observers have likened to a pumpkin look for a franchise that’s generally adhered to its traditional unis for most of its 99 seasons — at Miami on Oct. 14 and home against the Vikings on Nov. 18.

In recent years, the Bears’ alternate uniform has been even more minimalist then their normal ones, featuring orange numbers and shoulder stripes and a logo-less helmet with a gray facemask.

Chicago previously used the orange jerseys from 2005 through 2009 and again in 2011.

The storm between Thomas and the Seahawks has been brewing for a long time, and if it doesn’t end with a new contract it could get uglier.

The rift between Bell and the Steelers isn’t anything new. The running back missed all of training camp and preseason in 2017 after he received the franchise tag and couldn’t come to terms on a long-term deal in the summer.

In January, Bell said he’d definitely consider retirement if Pittsburgh gave him the franchise tag again. Two months later, he got the tag again.

So it should come as a surprise to no one that he isn’t planning on showing up Authentic Andrew Ference Jersey at team practices any time soon.
