James Develin, jack of all trades, is now a roster lock

On December 1, 2013, the Houston Texans must have known the play that Patriots QB Tom Brady called down by the goal line. For a fullback to play all 16 games, and carry the ball only 4 times from scrimmage, Wade Phillips must be a defensive genius. The Texans knew the play, and James still shook off all 4 tacklers to get into the end zone for his only touchdown of the season. If...

Quotable Monday: What won’t bother Bill O’Brien
