Police investigate home invasion at house owned by Bills' LeSean McCoy

11 July 2018 - 03:21 PM

Quite, quite odd to say the least. Is it a coinky dink or did he have her robbed and beaten?

I believe in innocent until proven guilty, but.....

Georgia police and the NFL are investigating a home invasion Tuesday at a house owned by Buffalo Bills running back LeSean McCoy in which his estranged girlfriend was allegedly beaten and robbed of jewelry.

Police in the Atlanta suburb of Milton said they are investigating the incident and have not named any suspects. McCoy, who has been training in Miami this summer, denied accusations made on social media by a friend of the victim that he was responsible for her injuries; he said he has not had direct contact with her in months.


Attorneys for the victim, Delicia Cordon, released a statement to multiple media outlets Tuesday evening saying Cordon was sleeping in the home when a male assailant entered the house early Tuesday and demanded "specific items of jewelry" that she had received from McCoy. There were no signs of forced entry, the attorneys said.

The attorneys' statement alleges the assailant bruised Cordon's wrists in an attempt to remove a bracelet and also struck her in the head with a firearm. The statement also alleges that McCoy previously made comments about wanting the jewelry back from Cordon and said she could be robbed because the jewelry was expensive.


Some good news, concessions being reduced

Well, good news if you a) go to the games and b) pay their exorbitant prices to buy food & drink...

Ravens Owner Steve Bisciotti said in February that the team would take a hard look at reducing prices at M&T Bank Stadium's concession stands.


Across the board? Ummm no....

The Ravens will reduce prices on select food items at concessions stands, with the hope of making games more affordable for fans.


Cass will reveal the price changes Thursday, oh how we wait with baited breath..

Steelers minority owner to buy Panthers

David Tepper Per Shefty... $2.2 Billion... Wow

let us hope Eric learned a lesson

This is from the same article as the wide receiver discussion, while the author doesn't go as far as I will, it is a nice snippet of "evidence" that seems to be, have been a reoccurring issue with this front office.

Yes, I am sure every team can say they had a player they targeted taken right before their pick, however...

Ravens assistant general manager Eric DeCosta acknowledged that there were a few times during the draft when he got angrier than usual because a player the team was targeting was taken within a handful of picks in front of them.

He didnt offer any specifics, but I think we can assume James Washington was one of the examples. The Oklahoma State receiver, known for his big-play ability, was one of the players the Ravens hoped would be available when they acquired the first pick of the third round.

But he was taken five picks before the Ravens were on the clock, by the Pittsburgh Steelers nonetheless. The Ravens then traded out of the slot.


I wonder, was he over ruled by Ozzy and "forced" to trade down or was it essentially business as usual, running into traffic to pick up a penny? There is no,as we talked about on draft day, monetary difference to pick a player in rd 3 rather than rd 2.

The Ravens are left to hope that it wont bite them badly, as it did in 2010, when they chose offensive lineman Ramon Harewood in the sixth round one spot ahead of where the Steelers got Antonio Brown, or it did last year, when the Ravens selected outside linebacker Tyus Bowser in the second round, bypassing receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster, who went to the Steelers 15 picks later.

Quite the trend, are the Ravens, as the Biscuit eluded to in one of the pressers pre draft, still under valuing players?

Why wait if the player you are targeting is not only there for value, but also for a position of need?

) My understanding is the running back the Ravens hoped to get in the draft was Miamis Mark Walton, but he was taken by the Cincinnati Bengals with the 12th pick of the fourth round, six spots ahead of where the Ravens selected cornerback Anthony Averett.

So it happened again & again this draft, who is to blame?

This is not to say for certain the players in previous drafts that the Ravens "just missed getting" would have turned out the same, but there is a good chance they would.

Only time will tell if the players missed out on because they traded back will be true difference makers, but that is not the point.

The point is still, that it keeps happening even when Ozzy knows his day is cpming to step away.

This snippet really speaks volumes-

5) In relation to the previous thought, I do think the Ravens made an effort to trade a few of their late-round picks to either move up in earlier rounds or to collect picks for future drafts. But it sounds as if there were no takers. I totally get the idea of moving back and collecting more picks, but it seems kind of pointless if the picks are in the sixth or seventh round. Just not a whole lot of value there.

Really? I believe Jeff, he is a good writer, pays close attentipn to the team well. But what kind or moron trades out & out, down to the 6th & 7th and then tries to trade back up for players they, you guessed it, under valued?

If they had ranked them properly they would not have missed out or moved out to get a better value on them in the first place.

I hope Eric learned his lesson, I hope 1 or 2 of the 12 drafted players turns out and the Ravens, us fans don't look back and see how badly the front office missed, or how well the players the Ravens under valued who were taken by others could have changed this team....

2 spots, who ya got?

04 May 2018 - 01:00 PM


Oh, yes, so who sticks? Likely 2 spots open for

That probably leaves only one or two spots for a group that includes Perriman, Tim White, Quincy Adeboyejo, DeVier Posey, rookie fourth-round pick Jaleel Scott, rookie fifth-round pick Jordan Lasley and any undrafted free agents the team brings in. Perriman is at a disadvantage in any roster competition because he doesnt play on special teams.


Assuming

Michael Crabtree, John Brown and Willie Snead IV have three of the spots locked. As the teams kick returner, a core special teams player and a guy who passed Perriman on the depth chart last year, Chris Moore has a good grip on the fourth spot.


Is true...

White, if he cam stay healthy is a great slot back and a slippery return man too boot, but the key is health.

Scott has the potential upside, great body control, hands catcher,circus catches, but he struggles with concentration on the easy ones... Sounds like a Clarence Moore type, man did he make great plays in practice...

12 players drafted, how many make the team? Also in the article is thr snippet that the Ravens tried to move BACK UP in thr draft after gathering all those 6th & 7th round picks but got no takers, of course.
