Nine defensive players were among the 13 undrafted free agents the Jaguars signed Monday.
Jacksonville also made official the departures of wide receiver Jaelen Strong and punter Brad Nortman, giving the team 89 players on its 90-man roster.
The defenders the Jaguars signed include Stanford cornerback Quenton Meeks, who made 25 pass breakups and seven interceptions in his career.
For them, it’s fun to watch, Red Sox manager Alex Cora said. For me, it’s like, ‘Oh God, here we go again.’
Cora breathed a sigh of relief when the Red Sox overcame that seventh-inning rally with J.D. Martinez’s solo home run on the second pitch of the top of the eighth inning.
That blast gave the Red Sox a 5-4 victory and allowed them to salvage the final game of the three-game series in the Bronx and avoid a sweep.
Between the length of the game and a 55-minute rain delay in the fifth inning, Cora wasn’t sure when it would end.
It felt like it took forever tonight, he said. The three games felt like the (ALCS) last year. It was just loud. They got something good going on there, but we also have something good here. It’s going to be fun the rest of the year.
Blackwell sent a letter to the NFL in which she offered to drop the threat of litigation in exchange for $1 and a meeting with Commissioner Roger Goodell. Blackwell is the attorney for Bailey Davis, a former New Orleans Saints cheerleader, and former Miami Dolphins cheerleader Kristan Ann Ware.
While Blackwell said she may not get that meeting with Goodell, she also doesn’t think a forum with Goodell is necessary for the league to institute changes.
I don’t care if they have me talk to the janitor, Blackwell said. I want to talk to whoever has the authority to make a difference. That could be Goodell or anyone else. I don’t care who it is.
Messages left by USA TODAY Sports with the NFL and its counsel were not immediately returned Thursday.
There’s been no other conference call or meeting scheduled as of Thursday. Blackwell said the two sides are in the process of exchanging information on the issue.
Yeah, there’s just a whole lot of bad decisions happening here.
