Given that Rex Ryan is an adult only in the sense that he can be charged as one — that’s he’s otherwise an uncouth, childish cheap-shot artist — it stands to reason that if we knew that, ESPN knew that.
In 2007, the Texans acquired restricted free agent Matt Schaub from the Falcons in a sign-and-trade deal where they gave up two second-round picks (2007 and ‘08) and switched 2007 first-round picks.
It’s easy to forget that Jackson and Timberlake were not the only acts that night. Produced by MTV — who had previously organized the 2001 halftime event — the show first featured performances by Jessica Simpson, Diddy, Nelly and Kid Rock. Jackson took the stage with a marching band for her 1989 hit “Rhythm Nation,” then was joined by Timberlake for his “Rock Your Body.”
The two had a sexy, playful chemistry and had previously been rumored to have been hooking up. Jackson was in the early throes of a romance with producer Jermaine Dupri, but “everyone — including [her mother] Katherine knew the chemistry was there,” a Jackson insider said.
You could practically feel the heat as the two gyrated against each other onstage. At the end of the number, while singing “I’m gonna have you naked by the end of this song,” Timberlake reached across Jackson’s chest, grabbing her right breast and ripping off part of her top — exposing her bare breast, the nipple completely covered by a large silver sun attached by a piercing.
“It’s that time just to get it over with,” Beckham told NJ Advance Media on Saturday, via ESPN. “I really want to do it so I can move past it. It’s too much sitting around thinking, ‘Where am I going to be at?’ I need to know where I can start buying furniture for a house. I want to have a place set where I know, ‘OK, this is home. I can always go back to home.’ So it’s just a little intermediate process right now. I’m sure it will get worked out.”
Beckham first became eligible for a contract extension this offseason but was unable to reach an agreement with the Giants. Before the season began, Beckham also said he wanted to be the highest-paid player in the league, though he had to settle for just $1.8 million this season. He is set to earn $8.5 million in 2018.
Following the recent hiring of general manager Dave Gettleman and coach Pat Shurmur, Beckham confirmed that both had reached out to him in recent weeks and the conversations went “great.”
