NFL star fleeing from cops gets help from alleged victim’s parents
Former Raiders defensive end Aldon Smith has entered rehab following an alleged domestic violence incident over the weekend. On Monday, he was released from the team.
The 2012 NFC Defensive Player of the Year last played for the Raiders in 2015. He was suspended for a year following a hit-and-run that August and Oakland ultimately decided to cut ties.
In conversations this week here, many people point to the Vikings as the team to beat for Cousins. Minnesota made it to the NFC Championship before losing to the Eagles last season. They have the salary-cap space to make a big offer to Cousins and are more of a win-now team than the others.
The Broncos have John Elway on their side. The Broncos executive vice president is known as a great closer in free agency. He landed Peyton Manning in free agency in 2012 and many key pieces of Denver’s 2015 team that won the Super Bowl came via free agency.
The Cardinals are looking to replace Carson Palmer, who just retired. They have some offensive weapons in David Johnson and Larry Fitzgerald to sell to Cousins. They also have the Arizona weather to sell him, which is slightly better than New Jersey, Minnesota or Colorado.
Lawrence, who’s suing ESPN for discrimination and fostering an atmosphere of sexual harassment, alleges Hill informed vice president of production Marcia Keegan and forwarded the senior HR director the voicemail, and nothing was done.
Despite his continued and repeated misconduct toward women, Berman remains a celebrated and welcome ESPN employee, the suit states.
It is unclear how Lawrence was made aware of the alleged voicemail or what it specifically contained.
Hill said the way in which the dispute is being depicted is dangerously inaccurate.
Chris never left any racially disparaging remarks on my voicemail and our conflict was handled swiftly and with the utmost professionalism, Hill said. I felt as if my concerns were taken seriously by ESPN and addressed in a way that made me feel like a valued employee.
