New England Patriots wide receiver Julian Edelman is facing a four-game suspension for violation of the NFL’s performance-enhancing drug policy, ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported on June 7. Schefter added that Edelman is arguing he has taken hundreds of tests without a positive result. His appeal is happening Monday in New York.
According to Sports Illustrated’s Albert Breer, Edelman’s positive result was for a substance that wasn’t immediately recognizable, and it is still being tested. But for now, the receiver is set to miss the first four games of the year.
In addition to the claim about the unidentifiable substance, his appeal will also hinge on the mishandling of the paperwork and delivery of his testing sample, according to ESPN. He’s hired attorney Alex Sprio to aide his appeal effort.
By sliding Edelman to the suspended list, New England will get an extra month https://www.cheapjerseysstoreus.com/ to figure out the odd man out in their lineup. That extra time could be instrumental in determining whether Phillip Dorsett can live up to his first-round billing, Matthews can restore his value after a brutal 2017, or Malcolm Mitchell can return to 100 percent after missing the entirety of last season.
Favre is your interception king and always will be. All hail the gunslinger.
The all-time interception king may be Favre, but nobody will ever come close to the 42 (!!!) picks thrown by Blanda in 1962.
If a player even got to 30 interceptions in today’s NFL, he’d probably be strapped to a rocket and launched into space. The only quarterback to top 25 in the last nine seasons is Manning, who had 27 in 2013 and 25 in 2010.
Blanda averaged three interceptions jerseys cheap per game during his 1962 season with the Houston Oilers and threw a pick on more than 10 percent of his attempts. Those are numbers nooooobody will ever come close to matching.
Justify is seeking to become horse racing’s 13th Triple Crown winner and second in four years when he runs in the Belmont Stakes.
The Kentucky Derby and Preakness winner is the early 4-5 favorite for Saturday’s 11/2-mile Belmont, the longest and most grueling of the three-race series.
If Justify beats nine rivals in the 150th Belmont, Bob Baffert would become the second trainer to win the Triple Crown twice. He did so in 2015 with American Pharoah, a colt that ended a 37-year drought.
