The case involving Buccaneers wide receiver DeSean Jackson’s wrecked vehicle being found abandoned with bullets and marijuana inside is currently inactive because police don’t have any witnesses or evidence to place the driver behind the wheel at the time of the crash, the Tampa Police Department said Thursday.
They also believe Jackson was a victim and had no role in the incident.
When Jackson was contacted about the accident, he attempted to report the vehicle was stolen. When pressed by police, he eventually admitted that the driver was Fontenote.
Police say the mall did not provide surveillance footage of the incident, which occurred near a parking garage. Jackson also has not followed up on the crash or facilitated in Fontenote coming forward to take responsibility, a contributing factor in the case’s inactivity, despite the fact that Fontenote had a warrant for his arrest related to traffic offenses. There were no witnesses.
If we get additional information or evidence the case moves forward, Tampa Police spokesperson Stephen Hegarty said. At this time, it’s inactive.

Canada has won the last four Olympic gold medals in women’s hockey and beat Team USA, 2-1, in the group stage this week, so it’ll be heavily favored regardless of whether Switzerland or OAR wins.
The rest of the schedule turns to the Womens Janoris Jenkins Jersey men’s tournament, which has four games spread between the morning and night. Team USA is off after facing Slovakia on Thursday night, but it’ll be back on the ice Saturday morning to face the Ilya Kovalchuk-led Russian men’s team.

NBC provided a tremendous third-look replay Friday, one showing Bruin Brad Marchand’s skate lifting the blade of Rangers goalie Henrik Lundqvist’s stick as Patrice Bergeron scored the game’s first goal. “Best seat in the house” promise fulfilled!
After the commercials, we were told the play stands. The Packers next kicked the PAT. The game then again was unplugged for commercials. Imagine sitting in the rain in Green Bay for that!
“We think that the rule is in a good place right now,” NFL officiating director Dean Blandino told the NFL Network last week. “Maybe there is another tweak that we can make in the rule to make it easier to understand. But I don’t anticipate any major changes.”
The NFL’s long-overdue return to Los Angeles becomes reality this offseason when the Rams hold their first workouts in the city since getting approval in January to move back to the place they abandoned 21 years ago.
I wanted desperately to stick with my previous mock selection of Texas Tech QB Patrick Mahomes, but the signing of Mike Glennon eliminated the need for a QB like Mahomes at No. 3. The Bears utilized free agency to upgrade at safety (Quentin Demps), wide receiver (Kendall Wright, Reuben Randle and Markus Wheaton), cornerback (Prince Amukamara and Marcus Cooper) and quarterback (Glennon).
He played just three games last season because of a knee injury. Peterson last rushed for 1,000 yards in 2015 when he had 1,485. In his career, he’s had seven 1,000-yard seasons, including 2,097 in 2012.
If the Falcons are suffering from a Super Bowl hangover, someone forgot to tell tight end Austin Hooper, who caught two passes for 128 yards and a touchdown.
If the Bears have proven one thing under John Fox, it’s that no one knows how to draft late-round running backs better than they do. Last year, Jordan Howard was one of the top rookies in the NFL after being selected in the fifth round of the draft. This year, the Bears have a budding star in Tarik Cohen, who was selected in the fourth round of the 2017 draft.
The Falcons had no answer for the shifty Cohen, who totaled 113 yards from scrimmage (five carries for 66 yards on the ground and eight catches for 47 yards and a touchdown through the air). Cohen must have been watching the Chiefs-Patriots game and taking notes on Thursday when Kareem Hunt played, because Hunt was the only offensive rookie who was more impressive in Week 1.
“In this case, they had a team that potentially stole three Super Bowls, and they issued a verdict in four days. Does that sound like the NFL was trying to get to the bottom of anything?”

Long before Dan Quinn studied film to break down Tom Brady and the Patriots, the future Falcons’ coach sat in an office at Morristown High School in New Jersey, studying the Roxbury Gaels and the Morris Knolls Golden Eagles.
Quinn was a football junkie from his early days. Back at Morristown, his coaches and friends thought he was just oddly obsessed with the game. There was no way to realize he was beginning a football life that would lead to next week’s Super Bowl.

Another possibility would be letting the appeal play out, and if the suspension is upheld, filing a lawsuit to challenge the ruling. By waiting, Elliott could miss time as the legal proceedings play out, as there is no set timetable for when the league has to make its decision on an appeal. In the Tom Brady Deflategate case, it took the NFL nearly five weeks to decide on the appeal. But the Brady suspension was handed down in May, and not in the middle of the preseason, so there was wiggle room for the Patriots quarterback.
[Elliott is] in jeopardy of missing the first and second week of [the season], no matter if he wins or loses, Wallach said in a phone interview. All this has to take place in rapid-fire order.

Someone throw NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell a life preserver 锟斤拷 the average TV audience for games through Week 14 sank even deeper behind those through the period last season.

Elite Jordan Berry Jersey Just like Belichick, there is a good chance Reid could see his assistant cabinet raided. Toub has been mentioned with the Colts and other teams. Matt Nagy’s star is rising quickly, thanks to the Chiefs’ offense taking off down the stretch after he was handed playcalling duties by Reid during the Chiefs’ midseason lull.
No one has a deeper coaching tree (it’s an offshoot of the Mike Holmgren tree, which is an offshoot of the Bill Walsh tree) in the NFL right now, with Reid’s influence spreading far and wide across multiple staffs — Ron Rivera of the Panthers, Doug Pederson of the Eagles, Sean McDermott of the Bills, Todd Bowles of the Jets and John Harbaugh of the Ravens all coached under Reid. Pat Shurmur and Steve Spagnuolo are at least candidates this year to secure head coaching jobs.

The Raiders are Vegas-bound but have a realistic chance to make their remaining time in Oakland memorable. They probably would have been the biggest threat to the Patriots in last season’s AFC playoffs if QB Derek Carr had been healthy. Now he’s back and he has RB Marshawn Lynch to help.
Game Mens Jordan Hicks Jersey Bernard Reedy has been cut five times by NFL teams, including once this season by his current employer. He hasn’t let the challenges of trying to grasp hold of a fleeting NFL career make him forget about his other job.
After Reedy and the Patriots try to win Super Bowl LII against the Eagles on Sunday, he will return home to St. Petersburg, Fla., to work for Care Ride. It is a transportation service for people battling terminal illnesses and recovering from strokes, heart attacks, organ transplants, amputations and serious accidents.
The Buccaneers eventually cut Reedy again, and he latched on with the Patriots. They’ve signed him, cut him and signed him Womens Kelechi Osemele Jersey again already since mid-November, but Reedy is in Minnesota for the Super Bowl.
He was gone from the team for two weeks, and during that time Reedy went back to work for Care Ride, just like he will once the offseason begins.
That’s just what comes with the NFL and what teams need for them, Reedy said. My job is to stay ready, be respectful, be coachable and be that positive person that I’ve always been. Like I will always be ready, even through the ups and downs, being released, getting put back on [the roster], I’m still going to be the same old person regardless of what might happen.
Arkansas prospect Brandon Allen even went to a hand masseuse to stretch out his small hands, and it reportedly worked 鈥?Allen’s hands measured 8 ?/? inches here after measuring 8 1/? inches at the Senior Bowl.
Broncos president John Elway, once a pretty good quarterback himself, said he recently measured his own hands at 10 1/? inches.
Hand size is important, Elway said Thursday. As a player you never look at it, as a GM, you always look at it.
The NFL is debating changes to the scouting combine but continues to run into interference from teams that like the format as is.
Some within the league would like to have players put on pads and compete against each other in drills, but that is considered unlikely because top prospects would balk at the possibility of an injury before the draft.
You don’t want to get away from the traditional drills that we’ve done, because you have so much information stored over the years for a comparison, Steelers GM Kevin Colbert said this week. But, you don’t want to grow stale either. We’re in a review process.

Elway is calling for separating politics and football after writing a letter earlier this year on Broncos stationery to the Senate Judiciary Committee recommending the approval of Neil M. Gorsuch, then a nominee to the Supreme Court. Elway is not alone in expressing those sentiments.
“That’s for you political beatniks to ponder,” Pittsburgh Steelers Coach Mike Tomlin said at his news conference Wednesday. “We’re a football group, man. You’re asking us about middle ground. You’re asking us about right or left. We’re a football group. That’s what you guys don’t understand. We don’t care, largely professionally speaking. We have personal opinions, yes. Professionally? We’re about to kick a ball off.”
Ben McAdoo, New York Giants: The Giants fired McAdoo following a 2-10 start that saw the team briefly bench starting quarterback Eli Manning. McAdoo’s firing comes less than two seasons into his tenure and just a year after helping guide Big Blue to a playoff berth in 2016. The 40-year-old finished with a 13-15 record as the Giants’ coach.
Mike Mularkey, Tennessee Titans: Mularkey and the Titans parted ways after failing to come to an agreement about their future together, the Titans announced on their website. Mularkey could be a candidate to take over the Cleveland Browns’ offensive coordinator role, Rapoport reported.
Jack Del Rio, Oakland Raiders: Del Rio told reporters after the game that Raiders owner Mark Davis relieved him of his duties following Oakland’s 30-10 loss to the Los Angeles Chargers. The firing completes a stark turnaround from a playoff season in 2016 that brought plenty of optimism into this campaign, in which Del Rio’s Raiders failed to meet expectations.

The what he’s had to work with line is interesting, given the Texans’ nearly constant search for stability at quarterback. Of course, O’Brien hasn’t exactly helped in that regard. He chose Tom Savage over rookie Deshaun Watson as his starter entering this season, then benched Savage after one half of the opening game and went to Watson. Doesn’t that mean he should have gone with Watson in the first place?

Oakland hosts Denver in Week 12 and while the Broncos’ strength is defense, they have not been impenetrable. Lynch hasn’t been a fantasy stalwart, but his owners likely don’t have the luxury of playing a better RB2 or flex option. The key to Lynch’s production has been in finding the end zone because he has failed to compile a lot of yards. He’s fully capable of delivering a pedestrian 50-60 yards and a touchdown.
Doug Martin, RB, Buccaneers: Perhaps we’re late to the party when we caution Martin owners to consider other options. First there was waiting out his suspension to begin the season. Then came two nice weeks of production when he finally began playing in Week 5.
Shawn Williams Authentic Jersey Eli Manning returned to his starting spot, but it didn’t do much for the Giants, Mark Maske writes. The Giants fell to 2-11 after a gaggle of big plays doomed them in the fourth quarter. They played with Dallas for most of the afternoon but still lost, 30-10. Manning had a poor game, completing 31 of 46 attempts for 228 yards, a touchdown and two interceptions.
The Eagles, who own the best record in the league and therefore have provided themselves ample opportunity to dance, have been the vanguard. Early this season, wide receiver Torrey Smith pantomimed a batter smashing a home run off a pitcher one week. The next week, the Eagles broke out the same skit, only the pitcher hit the batter with the imaginary pitch, and then the batter charged him. In another skit, 10 Eagles lined up like bowling pins and let a football, rolled by the 11th teammate, knock them down.

New England’s 24-20 victory over the Jaguars in Sunday’s AFC championship game wasn’t a miracle equivalent to last year’s record Super Bowl comeback against the Falcons, but it was nonetheless impressive.
The mere presence of Brady, and the team’s Authentic Malik McDowell Jersey reputation for fearless playcalling, had the Jaguars thinking pass. And the Patriots fooled the Jags’ fast defense several other times in the game, with flea-flickers and clever play calling. This is what the Patriots have been doing throughout Brady’s career, under Bill Belichick’s leadership. The Pats simply have too many weapons, and too many plays, to stop for an entire game. Jacksonville did it for three quarters Sunday, but that wasn’t enough.
And then there were the reports that he doesn’t want to be picked by the Browns, and would prefer to go to the New York Giants instead. Whether that’s true or false might not matter. Even before he became general manager of the Browns, John Dorsey reportedly had little interest in Rosen.

The NFL broke ground when it created the Rooney Rule, but it made the wrong call in refusing to penalize Mark Davis in this instance. Davis crossed the line, and we are disappointed in the League’s decision. The Rooney Rule and all of the League’s equal opportunity efforts need to be strengthened. We have called for meetings with the League to ensure that a process like this never happens again.
The Rooney Rule was installed in 2003 and ensures that a minority candidate interviews for every head coach and GM job in the NFL.

Veteran official Gene Steratore will serve as the referee and head the officiating crew for Super Bowl 52, the NFL announced Wednesday.
Yes, that’s the same Steratore who caught the attention of fans in December during a game between the Cowboys and Raiders. After Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott ran the ball on a critical fourth-down play, Steratore used an index card to help determine a first down. He later issued a lengthy explanation on the card’s purpose, saying he had already made up his mind but he used the card to reaffirm his decision.
Raiders general manager Reggie McKenzie interviewed two minority candidates — Oakland tight ends coach Bobby Johnson and USC offensive coordinator Tee Martin — before the team officially announced Gruden’s hiring Saturday. Prior to Gruden’s official hiring, the Fritz Pollard Alliance initially believed the Raiders were in compliance with the Rooney Rule.
Even with Seattle falling short of the postseason and Bennett not getting any younger, he’s not publicly longing to skip town or retire.
Yeah I’m 100 percent committed, he said. I think I’m in my prime. I want to play as long as I can. There are so many great players on this team and it’s a great organization.
I believe (Cleveland GM John) Dorsey will block out the noise and take the best guy (in Allen),” an unnamed executive told the Cleveland Plain-Dealer. And the Browns will be good very soon.”
This same executive told the Plain-Dealer before the 2016 draft that if Cleveland would take Carson Wentz with their first pick they would be set for the next 15 years. The Browns didn’t, and the results speak for themselves. Wentz would have been the MVP this year had he not suffered a season-ending knee injury, and Cleveland went 0-16.
Allen is the most polarizing player in the 2018 draft class. He has arm strength comparable to John Elway, a similar build to Wentz, and a virtually blank canvas with which to work. He was a junior college QB before going to Wyoming and he hasn’t taken a crazy amount of reps, so teams can develop him their own way.
