A man who survived a drive-by shooting in 2012 in Boston has identified former New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez as the shooter, according to the Associated Press.
Raychides Sanches was asked by prosecutors on Tuesday to describe the scene in Suffolk Superior Court, where Sanches said Hernandez was the shooter, and reportedly nodded in his direction.
He has looked more dynamic than ever, and the fact that he isn’t on the roster is startling.
LB Sean Lee, Dallas Cowboys
Five Cowboys players made the roster as starters, so it’s hard to be too upset about snubs, but Lee might legitimately be the best player on that team. The Cowboys were the first team in the NFL to clinch a playoff spot, and they own just two losses on the season. Lee has been a big part of that success. For how much credit Dak Prescott and Ezekiel Elliott get on offense, Lee has been better on defense.
Lee has totaled 140 tackles on the season and is always around the ball. He can rush the passer, he can tackle any running back, and the only reason he’s not considered the absolute best linebacker in the league is that he’s had a few seasons derailed by injury. This is not one of them.
DT Damon Harrison, New York Giants
Harrison makes the Giants defense work. He’s been instrumental in New York’s late-season success, and he is the reason the rest of the defense has so many standout performers. Olivier Vernon has recorded 8.5 sacks despite being all over the field, and Harrison causing havoc in the backfield is a big part of that. He’s a 350-pound defensive tackle who has 80 tackles. That’s unreal.
