THE ALTERNATIVE AWARDSDonovan Smith and Ali Marpet have had reasonable second seasons in Tampa but how come they are going to receive awards from this site? And what is Sam Bradford of the Vikings, Dontari Poe of the Chiefs and the Bucs’ third-string QB all doing on the red carpet? Yes it is the alternative awards, the sort of ones that are always written after your team finishes playing and you realise it is eight months until they will play again.Click here for the full awards ceremony details
