Chris Godwin: Arya Stark
Arya’s storyline definitely took some time to get going. While her family died around her each season, it felt like Arya’s story was always just running, but to no real destination. As anyone who watches the show knows, this did not stay the case. Arya has quickly become one of the most entertaining characters in the series, and is posed to have a massive role in this new season. Similar to Arya, wide receiver Chris Godwin is poised to make a splash this year.
Godwin has waited patiently and is now the #2 receiver behind Mike Evans, and is ready to make a name for himself. DeSean Jackson and Adam Humphries have both become White Walkers, and now it is time for Chris Godwin to step into the role that he was drafted for.
Deone Bucannon: Bronn
Bronn has come a long way from being a simple sell-sword that has saved Tyrion on numerous occasions. He is close with Tyrion and Jamie (or was) and his character is essentially a jack-of-all-trades; he can do anything for a price. Linebacker/safety Deone Bucannon is a Swiss army knife on the defense and is as versatile to the situation as Bronn is.
Bucannon can be called upon by Arians to make the big play when it counts, similar to the relationship between Bronn and Tyrion. His ability to play safety or linebacker makes him valuable on a defense that requires players to move around like they will for Todd Bowles. It also helps that Bucannon played for Bruce Arians in the past. Let’s just hope that these duos end up on good terms at the end of the season, both on the field and in the show.
