Former Cincinnati Bengals Running back Giovani Bernard Already Feels a 'Difference' Inside Tampa Bay Buccaneers' Facilities
"You can already feel the difference," Bernard said. "I'm just really excited to join this organization, just to be here.

“In my opinion, Tampa’s the best, Kansas City second. I’d put Cleveland third,” Cowherd said. “Especially if they sign Jadeveon Clowney tomorrow, which is expected.
