Bucs, Patriots complete trade to bring Rob Gronkowski out of retirement

first_img“It’s hard to say (what’s wrong),” Bucs coach Bruce Arians said of Howard in November after the Bucs’ 31-24 loss to the Saints. “He’s a talented, talented guy, but it’s not showing up on Sundays.”If Arians hasn’t seen enough from Howard to warrant further trust in him, then it makes sense that he’d look for a proven alternative with an existing rapport with his current quarterback. Whether he will continue to work with Howard — who is due $1.9 million in 2020 — or attempt to deal him elsewhere remains to be seen.This article has been updated with the Buccaneers’ announcement. Tom Brady won’t be the only former Patriot to play for Tampa Bay in 2020.The Patriots and Buccaneers on Tuesday completed a trade that brought the tight end out of retirement for one final season with Brady. The deal, which became official after Gronk passed a physical, sends him and a 2020 seventh-round pick to the Bucs; the Patriots receive a 2020 fourth-round pick in return. We’ve agreed to trade for TE Rob Gronkowski.📰: https://t.co/zaGisKOSFu pic.twitter.com/lujKVbOJFu— Tampa Bay Buccaneers (@Buccaneers) April 22, 2020ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported earlier Tuesday that a trade was being negotiated.Patriots and Buccaneers have been discussing a trade for retired TE Rob Gronkowski, per league sources. Gronkowski has one year and $10 million left on his contract. But the two sides are, and have been talking, prior to Thursday’s draft.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) April 21, 2020PATRIOTS MOCK DRAFT 2020: New England picks Tom Brady’s future replacementPer NFL insider Ian Rapoport, Gronkowski has started adding weight in anticipation of a return to the NFL:#Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski has, in fact, begin putting on weight for a return to football, sources say. He’s ready. He wants to return. And Tom Brady wants him back for the #Bucs, too.— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) April 21, 2020It should be noted that Tampa Bay had six tight ends on its roster before adding Gronkowski, including 2017 first-round pick O.J. Howard, who finished first among Bucs tight ends in receiving yards (459) and second in catches (34). That said, the 6-6, 251-pound Howard had just a single touchdown in 2019 (a career-low) and struggled with frustrating drops, often at inopportune moments.last_img read more

UFC fighter Mike Perry punches man, screams N-word in wild video

first_imgThe full video can be seen below:(Warning: Language of the video is NSFW.) “Platinum” Mike Perry is in hot water again.Late Wednesday, a video surfaced of the controversial UFC fighter being thrown out from a restaurant. In the process, Perry seems to knock an older man out cold (after being charged by him) and then proceeds to spout the N-word several times. Mike Perry in a bar fight last night over someone “touching him”.This is pretty disgusting behaviour from a UFC calibre fighter. Acting like a complete child. pic.twitter.com/ZAuxZTtXtW— MMA Eejit 🇮🇪 (@MMAEejit) July 8, 2020In the past, Perry has deemed he is “2 percent African” per DNA tests, which he claims allows him to use the slur. Perry has been reprimanded in the past from various corners for his use of the N-word, including from actor Michael Jai White and fellow UFC fighter Angela Hill.Perry, a welterweight, hasn’t held UFC gold and is coming off a unanimous decision victory vs. Mickey Gall in June.UFC has yet to release a statement on the incident.last_img read more

Journalist Worwee Faces US$2M Damages Lawsuit

first_imgThe failure of Roland Worwee, the Editorial Consultant of Corruption Watch Newspaper, to post a US$2.5 million bail was sufficient for the Civil Law Court to send him to the Monrovia Central Prison where he will remain until the money is raised by his legal team.Worwee was arrested early Thursday by both officers of the Liberia National Police (LNP) and bailiffs from the court following months of vigorous search to bring him under the jurisdiction of the court, where he is expected to face a US$2 million damages lawsuit.The lawsuit was filed against Worwee by lawyers representing Indian Consul General to Liberia, Upjit Singh Sachdeva, commonly known as “Jetty.”However, Worwee’s lawyers were seen on Thursday afternoon begging Judge Peter Gbeneweleh not to allow their client go to jail while they raise the US$2.5 million criminal appearance bond. However, the judge did not accept their plea.Defendant Worwee is said to have written a story in his Corruption Watch Newspaper claiming that Jetty was a “gay,” a publication, which Jetty’s lawyers are arguing resulted in the Indian Consul General suffering mental anguish, public harassment and public ridicule, for which they were claiming US$2 million for the damages sustained by their client.In their complaint filed early March, the lawyers among other things, alleged that on December 22, 2015, defendant Worwee, in his Corruption Watch Newspaper volume three, number 146, published a headline entitled, “Indian Consul General Again, is he a Gay or only a Sympathizer.”They also alleged that the wording of the publication presupposed that the defendant did not sincerely regret his previous publication in which the defendant on October 24, 2012, wrote an apology letter to Mr. Jetty in the presence of representatives of both the ministries of Information and Foreign Affairs about a story in his paper dated April 19, 2012, which they claimed also defamed their client’s reputation.The court documents also said that Worwee’s publication has caused Mr. Jetty grave setbacks in the exercise of his diplomatic activities; and not just so, but also caused him disrespect and laughter, for which he is suffering mental torture.“Worwee’s publication has caused our client not to move in the public and interact with other colleagues and business entities that has led to him losing more than US$2 million in business transactions,” adding, “It has also caused ordinary people and public officials to avoid coming into contact with him,” the lawyers said.According to the lawyers, the defendant without any justification was deliberately bent on tarnishing the reputation of the Indian Consul General, who out of fear that if the defendant is not held liable, he would continue to use his publication to defame not just Mr. Jetty alone, but innocent citizens and foreigners as well.The lawyers further alleged that defendant Worwee continued making up such lies, “thereby besmearing, maligning and willfully spreading misinformation through his media outlet knowing full well that his allegation against (our client) was untrue, baseless and misleading, yet he chose to formulate such evil and shamefulness agenda for which damages was necessary.”Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Odom to make early return

first_imgLOS ANGELES – What once looked like a potentially season-ending shoulder injury will wind up keeping Lamar Odom out for less than two weeks, a critical development for the Lakers as they attempt to regroup with 18 games left in the regular season. Odom saw team doctor Steve Lombardo before Sunday’s game and was cleared to practice. It was feared that Odom would need surgery to repair the torn labrum he suffered in a March 2 game against Sacramento. The first came with Brown showing up late to Sunday’s shootaround. Brown celebrated his 25th birthday Saturday – there were no cake-throwing incidents – but didn’t make any excuses to Jackson. Jackson also said he “liked \ attitude” after Friday’s loss to Philadelphia. Bynum had another lackluster game, making just 1 of 4 shots for two points, in what Jackson considered a favorable matchup against the Mavericks. ross.siler@dailynews.com (818) 713-3607 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! The Lakers are 0-5 since Odom’s injury. He saw specialist Dr. Lewis Yocum last week, at which time the Lakers said Odom would defer a decision on surgery for two to three weeks. Lakers coach Phil Jackson conceded that Odom, who needed surgery to repair a similar injury at the end of the 2004-05 season, would be limited in some ways once he returns. “I think he’d have to understand what he can do and what he can’t do,” Jackson said. “There’s some things, maybe going to the basket and dunking the ball, that right off the bat is something he’s going to have to watch because that extension is the problem.” Jackson said Luke Walton reported no pain and increased mobility in his ankle and was hopeful of returning Thursday. Walton was in uniform for Sunday’s game but did not play. A combination of factors led to teenage center Andrew Bynum staying in the starting lineup and Kwame Brown coming off the bench Sunday. center_img “The strength is good, so the strength will protect the shoulder,” Odom said. “I regained strength really quick, so the rehab’s going well right now, and I’m looking forward to getting on the court. “I will play on Thursday \,” Odom added. “No doubt about it.” last_img read more
