"Nobody can block this guy one-on-one," said McGinest, who played 15 seasons in the NFL as an outside linebacker with the Patriots and Browns. He won three Super Bowls, none with Cleveland.
The 6-foot-1, 300-pound Atkins has been a beast since 2010, when the Bengals drafted him in the fourth round out of the University of Georgia. With 52 sacks, eight fumbles forced and two recovered, he’s been to five Pro Bowls, and it likely would have been six straight if he hadn’t torn an anterior cruciate knee ligament in 2013. Twice he’s been named first team All-Pro.
