What Brian Flores told Kyle Pitts after UF ‘unicorn’ put on a show at his pro day

Some significant bits of information emerged from the University of Florida’s star-studded Pro Day:

Tight end Kyle Pitts is built like a pass rusher, runs like an X receiver and has arms like Inspector Gadget.

And if he slips to the Miami Dolphins at No. 6 — which is far from certain — general manager Chris Grier and coach Brian Flores would have serious interest in taking him.

Flores made the four-hour trip to Gainesville to get a close look at Pitts, the 6-5, 245-pound tight end who clocked a 4.44-second 40-yard dash Wednesday.

Pro Football Hall of Fame Class of 2021 revealed at ‘NFL Honors’

On the night before Super Bowl LV, which features one sure-fire Hall of Fame QB and another signal-caller 18 years his junior on pace for a place in Canton, the Pro Football Hall of Fame Class of 2021 was revealed at NFL Honors.

The rolling announcement of inductees took place over a two-hour window. Below are the names of the Class of 2021:

Peyton Manning: When the Hall of Fame Selection Committee met in January to nominate this year’s inductees, Colts beat writer Mike Chappell spent no more than 13 seconds pleading Manning’s case. And why not? What more do you say about the quarterback who’s accomplished everything? The No. 1 pick of the 1998 draft by the Colts, Manning “changed the skyline” in Indianapolis, as David Letterman once put it. The son of Archie and the brother of Eli made a name for himself as the ultimate field
