As the dregs of summer continue, rather than giving the people awesome highlights from hard-fought Sunday games, we’re relegated to giving highlights from practices.

If these performances were any indication, then Sammy Watkins would be the Michael Jordan of the NFL. But we’d probably want to make room for Vikings kicker Blair Walsh on the Summer Futility All-Star Squad.
