Baltimore was 6-1 in games in which Suggs recorded a full sack.
He finished with an average of 4.0 yards per rush, the worst of his career, but with 1,586 yards from scrimmage, McCoy gained over 1,000 more than any other Bills player this season. He was playing his best football before a Week 17 injury, having trailed only Todd Gurley in rushing yards from Weeks 11 to 16. — Mike Rodak
A fourth-quarter strip sack sealed a 23-16 win over the Texans in late November. He ranks as the franchise’s all-time leader in sacks (125.5) and forced fumbles (36). — Jamison Hensley
There weren’t many options this year, as even reliable wide receiver A.J. Green didn’t have his best year. But Atkins was one of the most consistent players, despite playing on an injured toe the last part of the season. He was one of two Bengals to make the Pro Bowl and led the team with nine sacks through 15 games, an impressive feat for a defensive tackle. — Katherine Terrell
In a winless season, there aren’t a lot of players who jump out for excellence. Linebackers Chris Kirksey and Joe Schobert played every down and had more than 100 tackles, but Johnson was the team’s most reliable playmaker on an offense that lacked reliable players. Johnson led the Browns with 74 receptions and seven touchdowns, and had 1,041 combined yards rushing and receiving. — Pat McManamon
John Wall has returned to Adidas with a new five-year deal after testing the sneaker free agency market over the last two seasons, according to a report from The Vertical’s Shams Charania.
Sources: Washington Wizards All-Star John Wall has agreed to a five-year endorsement deal with Adidas. Wall returns to the brand after testing shoe free agency over the past couple years.
Wall had been in talks with multiple brands over that period but eventually returned to Adidas, where the brand already launched two signature shoes under Wall’s name. His previous deal expired in Sept. 2015 after the J Wall 2 launched. The All-Star point guard never re-signed despite having a third signature shoe in the works.
Wall was the biggest sneaker free agent on the market after Giannis Antetokounmpo. Adidas chased Antetokounmpo once his deal expired in the fall but lost out on Nike. Since then, Adidas brought back Wall and signed Zach LaVine to the brand.
