It was his lifelong dream to play in Fort Worth, now this TCU offensive lineman is making the most of it

Since the moment he stepped on campus, Patrick has approached making the most of his dream opportunity with an intensity on the field and easy to get along with personality off of it, which has already helped him become a key cog for TCU’s offense.

The roster fit is questionable but since this is the lone local option among the four, that could help the Frogs here.

For Andy Dalton, a chance to play is just part of the job | Carolina Panthers

Positioned to start Sunday in Seattle since injured rookie Bryce Young isn't practicing and isn't expected to play, Dalton has been taking all the reps with the ones and remembering what it's like again.
