Bill Belichick could testify in Aaron Hernandez double murder case

Patriots coach Bill Belichick could find himself face-to-face with Aaron Hernandez as his double murder trial gets set to begin.

Lady Gaga will grace the stage wherever that stage may be for the halftime show at Super Bowl 51 in Houston. Tony Bennett reportedly will be featured at the beginning of her performance.

“I’ve been planning this since I was 4,” Lady Gaga said recently. “So I know exactly what I’m gonna do. For me it’s all about giving to the fans and brining people together that wouldn’t normally come together. It’s such a big world stage in terms of how many people see it, and it’s been done so many times, I think the challenge is to look at it and say, ‘So what can I do differently; how can I elevate certain little things here and there?’ And also make it about the music.”

One general manager told this person his team would pay McDowell’s signing bonus if a team in his division drafted him in the first round. That last part is quite a hot take, but it’s notable in the sense that not only is McDowell concerning for teams, but teams are expecting him to be more of a Tampa Bay Lightning Cheap Jerseys cancer than a benefit. He reminds of Sheldon Richardson coming out of Missouri, though Richardson’s teammate issues weren’t nearly as concerning.

This is a loaded tight end class. O.J. Howard will be drafted within the top 15 picks, and his ceiling may be the Jets at No. 6 overall. David Njoku will earn first-round consideration during the process, too.

Evan Engram of Ole Miss and Gerald Everett of South Alabama will have fans during the process, but I’m most fascinated by Toledo’s Michael Roberts. He’s a bit slow off the line, maybe his only concern for NFL teams, but his fluidity on the perimeter and remarkable red-zone ability (16 touchdowns in 2016) makes him one of the most complete tight ends in the class. He’s firmly in the second-round mix.

NFL Combine: Leonard Fournette’s impressive 40 time leaves three questions for GMs

What did Leonard Fournette’s performance at the NFL Scouting Combine on Friday do for his 2017 NFL Draft stock?

It depends on what you are looking at. Fournette weighed in at 240 pounds and disappointed with a 28.5-inch vertical. Fournette, however, overshadowed that with a 4.51 in the 40-yard dash.That’s comparable to the times of Christian McCaffrey (4.48) and Dalvin Cook (4.49).

It kind of hurt, to be honest, because I’m a supreme competitor. It was great to get to the ACC championship because we hadn’t been there since Tyrod Taylor, but I think we could have played better than we played.

I think if we played our best game, we could’ve beat them. They were a great team, and my we accomplished so much, but it would’ve been even better had we beat them. But they were a really great team.

Your head coach, Justin Fuente, coached Paxton Lynch just a year ago (and Lynch) became a first-round pick. How much have you spoken to him, and what type of advice did he give you?

I actually made a joke while I was getting recruited (by Fuente) that I was going to be a “one-and-done” in college, but I didn’t think I’d actually do that. I never thought we’d be in this Cheap NFL Jerseys China scenario or get this chance, but we talked about it early on and even before the season.

But we were at that level, that highest level, together for the first time and we did a lot of feeling the situation out, trying to make sure we got the ball rolling early. He kind of taught me how to play the quarterback position in a better light, and what really to focus on during the year. I Cheap Authentic NFL Jerseys learned a lot.

Josh Norman disses Dez Bryant, OBJ in outspoken interview

Josh Norman dissed Dez Bryant as “just a guy” and said Odell Beckham Jr. “is a big kid” in a wide-ranging interview published Thursday on Bleacher Report.

The Redskins cornerback has never lacked for confidence, and he made some predictably brash statements about his game and rival wide receivers in the interview.

Regarding his games this coming season against the Cowboys and Bryant and the Giants and Beckham, Norman promised mayhem.

“Trust me when I tell you, it’s going to be bad blood this year,” he told the website. “You think the NFC East didn’t like each other before? This year right here? There’s going to be a lot of fines and maybe some suspensions.”

Norman dismissed both Bryant and Beckham. When asked about Bryant, Norman said, “That’s a guy. Just a guy. Dez was Dez in 2012, ’13, ’14. Maybe ’14. Now? He’s a guy. He doesn’t ‘wow’ you. For me, he Cheap Jerseys Paypal Payment don’t. For other guys, he probably will do the worst to them because he’ll bully them. But you can’t bully a bully. …That’s why his game doesn’t resonate to me.”

Norman and Beckham have tangled during and after games the past two seasons. The most infamous incident came in a 2015 game when Norman, then with the Panthers, and Beckham scuffled on the field on several occasions, leading to fines for Norman and a one-game suspension for Beckham.

Norman told Bleacher Report that Beckham behaves Cheap Jerseys Sell differently when the two rivals meet.

“He tries to be a tough guy. He tries to put on this persona which he’s not,” Norman said. “He does things that he normally wouldn’t do because of all the pressure and added hype that he has to put on his whole persona. He’s not this guy. If you go back and watch the games in which we play compared to the games we don’t play each other, he’s a totally different guy.”

“When people get physical, tough, like the Minnesota game, he acts out. He’s a kid. He’s a big kid, man.”
