J.J. Watt’s humanitarian efforts know no bounds.

The Houston Texans’ star defensive end is willing to pay funeral expenses for the 10 people killed in Friday morning’s mass shooting at Santa Fe High School in Texas.

After Hurricane Harvey devastated the Houston area, Watt utilized social media to raise more than $37 million for people impacted by the disaster. It all started with a video posted on social media of Watt announcing a fundraising campaign with a goal of $200,000. Watt said that he would match the first $100,000. It took less than three weeks to raise more than $37 million.

Edmunds will eventually take over at safety, but defensive coordinator Keith Butler will rely on Burnett’s experience in the meantime. 

The No. 2 defense in the league could potentially have another versatile playmaker in defensive tackle Taven Bryan. Here’s a short-term projection that may not seem obvious now, but expect the Florida product to start in 2019.

The Jacksonville Jaguars will squeeze one more year out of Marcell Dareus then release him next offseason. Why? He carries an $11.6 million cap hit for the 2019 campaign but doesn’t hold dead money for the final three years on his deal, per Spotrac. The front office can cut him and recoup the cash. The same concept applies to Abry Jones at $4 million next year. Taven presents a cheaper alternative.

You can check all the boxes with Penny. Highly productive collegiate ball-carrier, smooth receiver and developing pass-protection skills. The Seahawks coaching staff clearly sees him as a starter. Based on his early preparation, we should follow suit.
