I just learned that Fat Bear Week is a thing, and now Fat Bear Week is the only sport I care about. I’m not trying to say that the NFL, NBA, MLB et al don’t matter, it’s just more that they don’t have fat bears competing — so sue me.

The Katmai National Park and Preserve in King Salmon, Alaska, is holding its annual competition to rate and appreciate the fattest bears living in the park. It’s a competition that shines a light on the burly beasts as they prepare for winter hibernation and loves them for the big-time eating these absolute units have been doing. It’s an appreciation of the bounty found in the park that allows these bears to bulk up.

Cardinals haven't discussed extension for Chandler Jones?

  Cardinals haven't discussed extension for Chandler Jones? The Cardinals have made no effort to rework Chandler Jones‘ deal, despite Jones’ continued excellence both on and off the field. Jones is under contract through the 2021 season, but rival execs still believe it’s unusual that the Cardinals have not at least explored an extension. After all, Jones has been arguably the league’s best pass-rusher since Arizona acquired him from the Patriots in March 2016, and the 60 sacks that he posted from 2016 to '19 are eight more than anyone else in the league during that span. The extension he signed in March 2017 will pay him a $16M salary this year and a $15.

Scouting report on some of these fat bears.

You can check out the full field of the fat bears here, but here are some of my feelings on these bears.

Holly

Holly is getting a first round bye as the reigning 2019 fat bear champion, and it’s well deserved. Last year she showed up the true power of bear weight gain, chonking up to incredible levels to prepare for the winter.

Holly has the gift of true gains, and for that reason alone I think she’s going to be the bear to watch this fall.

Otis

A multi-year champion, the photogenic and hefty Otis can never be counted out of any fat bear competition. While he may have been unseated last year by Holly, overlooking this big bear is a fool’s errand. Look no further than his 2016 win to see the potential Otis brings.

Jaguars release veteran DT Timmy Jernigan

  Jaguars release veteran DT Timmy Jernigan Jernigan signed with Jacksonville in August and played a rotational role along the defensive line through the first three games. The 48th overall pick of the 2014 draft, Jernigan spent his first three years in Baltimore.He was then traded to Philadelphia and started 15 games for the Eagles team that won Super Bowl LII. He signed a four-year, $48M extension midway through that year but was limited to three games the following year following back surgery. He was cut after 2018, then re-signed with Philly on a cheaper one-year deal.He appeared in 10 games with nine starts for the Eagles last season.

Chunk

I identify with Chunk on a visceral level, because I think we have the same body type.

Chunk is a large adult male with narrowly-set eyes and a prominent brow ridge. Even at his leanest, Chunk carries substantial fat reserves, especially on his hind quarters.

Backpack

Aside from his very good name, I have some doubts whether Backpack will be able to bulk up enough to compete properly in the Fat Bear competition.

There’s some promising bulk for sure, but it doesn’t feel like it’s quite enough at this time.

How can I watch the 2020 Fat Bear Week?

Follow along with the official Twitter account, but if you plan to really get deep into these proceedings like I do, then you’ll be watching the live cameras of the fat bears in all their glory.

Watching bears fish for massive amounts of salmon and judging their increasing girth isn’t just the sport I wanted, it’s the sport I needed. Rest assured, dear reader, that I will continue to chronicle the events of Fat Bear Week in their entirety.

Bucs DT Vita Vea out for season with broken ankle .
The 2018 first-round selection missed three games due to injury during his rookie campaign, but he rebounded to play in (and start) all 16 of the Bucs’ contests last year. Tampa has fielded one of the strongest run defenses in the league in 2020, and Vea is a big reason for the club’s success in that regard. He also showed improved chops at getting to the quarterback, as he posted two sacks in his four-plus games this season (including one Thursday night before the ankle injury).Contractually, it’s an especially unfortunate blow.
