Broncos general manager John Elway is the latest NFL executive to be deposed in connection to Colin Kaepernick’s collusion case against the NFL, according to 9NEWS.
Elway answered questions for an hour at Broncos headquarters on Tuesday as the former 49ers quarterback grievance continues. Kaepernick and lawyers representing the league and the players union attended the deposition as well.
Chris Christie spent six years pushing for legalized sports betting.
Now, the former governor says New Jersey lawmakers shouldn’t waste any more time. He thinks people should be allowed to place wagers here as soon as possible.
“We should allow Monmouth Park to start taking bets on Memorial Day,” Christie told NJ Advance Media in a phone interview.
Hard Knocks, HBO’s Emmy-award winning documentary series that annually chronicles an NFL training camp, is heading to Cleveland this summer.
While that’s great news for fans — who doesn’t want an inside look at the start of No. 1 pick Baker Mayfield’s career? — it might not be good news for the Browns themselves. And head coach Hue Jackson should be especially wary.
Two of the last four head coaches (Mike Smith, Jeff Fisher) featured on Hard Knocks were fired by season’s end, while only five of the 12 teams that have appeared on the series made the playoffs. Neither of the last two playoff teams, the 2013 Cincinnati Bengals and 2015 Houston Texans, made it out of the wild-card round. None of the last three teams (Texans, Rams and Bucs) improved upon their previous season’s record — though that’s a low bar for the winless Browns.
Still, it will be interesting to see how HBO frames the upcoming season.
Their biggest concern, obviously, is his maturity, which hampered his preparation during his two years in Cleveland and was a distraction for the Browns.
