Before the meeting took place, however, the senior committee convened in order to discuss if a players who has been retired for more than 25 year was worthy of the recognition. The answer is yes: former Patriots offensive tackle Leon Gray will be inducted into the Hall as its 28th member.A third-round draft pick by the Miami Dolphins in 1973, Gray joined the Patriots off waivers that same year and went on to establish himself as one of the best left tackles in football in the mid-70s. Playing alongside Hall of Fame guard John Hannah, the Jackson State product appeared in 80 games for New England over the course of six seasons and was voted to two Pro Bowls (1976, 1978) and one All-Pro team (1978).Gray was an integral member of one of the best offensive lines not only in franchise but arguably also in pro football history: in 1976, Gray and company helped the Patriots average 210.6 rushing yards over the course of the 14-game regular season — a franchise mark that still stands today. The very next year Yodny Cajuste Buffalo Bills Jersey , the unit showed that it was equally dominant in pass blocking by giving up only 14 quarterback sacks.Its most dominant performance, however, might have come one year after that: in 1978, after the NFL had switched to a 16-game regular season format, Gray and the rest of the Patriots’ offensive line — left guard John Hannah, center Bill Lenkaitis, right guard Sam Adams and right tackle Shelby Jordan — paved the way for an NFL record 3,165 rushing yards. The number still stands undisputed today and will likely never be broken again.Just before the start of the 1979 season Color Rush Yodny Cajuste Jersey , Gray’s tenure with the Patriots came to an abrupt end when the club decided to trade him to the Houston Oilers. He spent three seasons with his new club and was named to the Pro Bowl and All-Pro squads two more times each, before another trade sent him to the New Orleans Saints. Following his second year with the Saints, after the 1983 season, the then 32-year-old decided to retire from football.In November 2001 at the age of just 49, Gray passed away. The late standout offensive tackle was a finalist for the Patriots Hall of Fame in both 2013 and 2015 — and has now finally made it as the third former player to get in on a senior ticket: center Jon Morris was voted into the Hall in 2011, defensive tackle Houston Antwine in 2015. Maybe legalized gambling won’t be the easy money that most state governments think it will be.Via the , Rhode Island lost $900,000 on sports betting in February.Since adopting wagering in November 2018 Youth Yodny Cajuste Jersey , Rhode Island has turned a profit of only $150,000, putting the state far behind its $11.5 million projection through June 30.With the Patriots being the local betting option of choice and the local team covering the spread in Super Bowl LIII, it’s no surprise that Rhode Island took a bath in February. It’s one of the basic realities of state-by-state betting, where hearts tend to rule wallets and, consequently, the bets skew the action toward the geographically favored team. Adjusting the betting lines to reflect that reality, however Womens Yodny Cajuste Jersey , will open the door for more dispassionate gamblers to load up on the non-local team, creating potentially easy money.That’s why sports books in every state that legalizes gambling ultimately will loathe the nearby teams and love their rivals. And if/when a local team develops a consistent ability to cover, the state in question will have a very hard time making as much money as it could from wagering.Over time, the house tends to win. But there will be short-term pain for every state-turned-house when the home team ends up being better than expected, allowing folks whose assessment of the betting line is skewed by their rooting interests to win money that otherwise would make its way into the governmental coffers.Short of taking local teams off the board entirely, it’s a risk that most states that choose to embrace gambling will have to bear.
