Former NFL player Kenyatta Jones dies at 39
Kenyatta Jones, an offensive lineman who played four NFL seasons in New England and Washington, has died at the age of 39.
The way Adam Jones crashed and burned as Pacman makes him the Oilers/Titans worst-ever pick, but in terms of production, no first-round defensive back gave them more disappointment than Woolfolk. Tennessee was right to take a corner at this spot of that draft, but totally whiffed by not making him Asomugha, who had several good shutdown seasons in Oakland.
The Redskins needed a quarterback in this draft, evidenced by them taking Jason Campbell a pick after Rodgers at No. 25. After Alex Smith went No. 1 overall to the 49ers, Rodgers had a well-documented slip to Green Bay, which could afford to stash him behind Brett Favre for three seasons. Of all the teams, Washington had no good reason to let Rodgers slide. Sure, Rodgers might have been messed up by starting as a rookie and going through all the different offenses Campbell did, but now no one will ever know. Rogers turned into a pretty good corner, but that really wasn’t until he signed with the 49ers as a free agent in 2011. In some form, whether using No. 9 or working a deal with their other pick, the Redskins whiffed by not ending up with Rodgers.
Folks in Vegas will be getting what could be their last chance to see the local hockey team play in person on Thursday night, when Game Five happens in Vegas. If the Golden Knights lose, they’ll be staying in Vegas for the duration of the offseason.
You should stay right here for a couple of minutes for the highlights of Monday night’s win by the Capitals, which gives them a 3-1 lead in the best-of-seven series.
Ryan Shazier continues to proudly progress with his recovery.
The Steelers linebacker pumped up the Pittsburgh crowd Wednesday before the puck drop of Game 1 of the Stanley Cup playoffs series between the Penguins and Flyers.
Shazier stood to greet the PPG Paints Arena audience before leading a let’s go Pens chant, which got the building roaring with excitement.
