“Fox is the guy!” an Under Armour source texted just before their pitch meeting, perfectly on cue.
Every major brand expressed strong interest in Fox, who had been the face of Kentucky for the one season he was there and was widely perceived as potentially the fastest player in the NBA — a talent that appealed to sneaker companies, which had to make their pitches before knowing where 2017’s top prospects would land in the draft.
His overnight arrest was first reported by Pro Football Talk.
The Dolphins said they were promoting running back De’Veon Smith from the practice squad to take Maualuga’s roster spot.
Miami signed Maualuga, 30, to a one-year deal during training camp in August after he played eight years for the Bengals, including two seasons with current Dolphins defensive coordinator Matt Burke.
The good news is, with the bye week to hit the playbook and game film, plus the full assistance from both coach Mike McCarthy and Rodgers, Hundley will be in a much better position to succeed in his second pro start and beyond.
That is, assuming the Packers help their young backup quarterback with an offense that maximizes his strengths and limits his weaknesses.
Few teams in the NFL are better than the Packers at managing injuries, big and small. Unlike in 2013, the first time Rodgers had to miss time with a broken collarbone, Hundley carries more upside than Matt Flynn, Scott Tolzien and Seneca Wallace did.
