The unfolding Washington cheerleader scandal has apparently cost at least one executive his job.
According to Craig Hoffman of 106.7 The Fan, team executive Dennis Greene has resigned.
It is doubtful Miller will actually be able to recover enough to play in the NFL again, but the Bears made the class move by offering a contract that will pay him $458,000 regardless of whether he plays this season, according to ProFootballTalk. If he makes a miraculous return to the field, he would be paid $790,000.
Miller officially dislocated his knee and tore his popliteal artery on the play while trying to make a touchdown catch — only to have it overturned by replay, to make matters worse. But he later revealed he asked doctors to save my leg in the minutes following the injury as he was carted off the field and rushed to a Level 1 trauma center to undergo emergency surgery. The quick actions by the Bears’ medical staff may have saved him from amputation.
Lawyer Mark Geragos said on CNN Wednesday night that the NFL owners are conspiring against his clients to appease President Trump, and he suggested that more evidence will surface soon.
I would stay tuned because this case is about to take a dramatic turn, he said.
Asked what he means by that, Geragos wouldn’t offer specifics other than a suggestion that somebody has decided they were going to dime out the NFL for what they were doing.
That may mean a witness can come forward who will contradict the stated position of the NFL, which is that each team decides for itself whether a player can help that team, and that if Kaepernick and Reid aren’t on a roster, it’s because teams have individually decided they can’t help. If Geragos can produce a witness from the league office, or a team’s coaching staff or personnel department, who can testify that the football people do, in fact, think Kaepernick and Reid can contribute, but that owners and the league office have decided that Kaepernick and Reid are not to see the field, that would go a long way toward making the players’ case.
