Just think of all the things you could do in a LaFerrari Aperta. You could use it to scream across a racing tarmac at more than 200 mph, rip around hairpin turns with ease or just gaze in awe at the monument to Italian automotive excellence. Golfer Ian Poulter, on the other hand, uses his $2.2 million speedster for something else: trick shot videos.

The arrival of running back Leonard Fournette in Tampa seems to signify, at first blush, a short stay for veteran running back LeSean McCoy, who signed with the Bucs in late July. Per a league source, the Buccaneers have informed McCoy that he'll still have a spot on the roster. If LeSean McCoy is behind Ronald Jones and Fournette, it's hard to envision McCoy dressing in lieu of a younger running back who would contribute on special teams.
