The 13 players keep their bonuses from the Braves, must obtain new representatives and will be free to negotiate as free agents with other teams from Dec. 5 through Jan. 15.
Derrius Guice, RB, LSU — Guice ran for 147 yards and three touchdowns on 21 carries as LSU rolled to a 33-10 win over Arkansas. The 5-11, 212-pound junior is on the cusp of eclipsing 1,000 yards for the second straight year and will likely follow former LSU running back Leonard Fournette to the NFL next spring.
Josh Jackson, CB, Iowa — Jackson might be the top cornerback in the draft and is the front-runner for the Jim Thorpe Award. The 6-1, 192-pound junior was the only reason the Hawkeyes scored in the blowout loss in Madison. Jackson had a pair of pick-sixes to account for both of Iowa’s touchdowns and added a forced fumble. He now has a nation-leading seven interceptions, five of which have come in the last two weeks.
It’s a stark difference from this point of the season two years ago, when the NFC fielded only five clubs above .500 while the AFC had six. Add the total of seven winning AFC teams through Week 10 last year, and the conference overall is experiencing its worst three-year stretch since the NFL adopted an eight-division format in 2002.
Now in Sacramento — one of four NBA teams with purple in their color palette — Fox plans to wear several models of Bryant’s signature Nike line, which frequently were made available in the Lakers’ particular shade of purple. This season he primarily has worn a combination of the two most recent Kobe AD models, but his brother is already hunting down rare older Kobe colorways in Kings hues, as Fox is looking to once again turn heads with his footwear.
