Is Greg Newsome Related to Ozzie Newsome?

Three of the NFL’s finest athletes past and present share the same last name, which makes fans question if there is a connection among them.

Every Monday for the final eight games that season and for all of 1985, Schottenheimer made the team sit and watch the game film together, even the special teams plays.
