Friend says Jameis Winston was alone with Uber driver

Friday June 22nd, 2018 11:16:26 PM
A friend of Jameis Winston's who was with him the night the Buccaneers quarterback allegedly sexually abused an Uber driver says Winston left a party scene alone in the Uber car. That statement contradicts a third friend who has said publicly that Winston was never left alone with the driver. Winston, former Vanderbilt football player Brandon Banks and Eagles cornerback Ronald Darby were at a Scottsdale, Arizona, nightclub in March 2016 when Winston became intoxicated and "unruly," prompting his friends to send him away in an Uber, Banks' attorney, Mark Scruggs, told Outside the Lines. "What happened after that," Scruggs said, "they cannot say." Banks has never been identified publicly as being at the scene until now. On Thursday, ESPN's Adam Schefter reported that the NFL was planning to suspend Winston for the first three games of the 2018 season for violating the league's personal conduct policy in relation to the allegation.

Peyton Manning says 'ultimate pro' Drew Brees deserves to set record for passing yards

Saturday June 23rd, 2018 04:26:25 AM
Peyton Manning knows it's not a matter of "if" New Orleans Saints quarterback  Drew Brees will break his NFL record for career passing yards. "It's just a matter of when," Manning told on Friday during the Manning Passing Academy in Thibodaux, Louisiana. "He deserves it. He's been a great player for a long time," said Manning, who first met Brees in 1998 when he was a rookie with the Indianapolis Colts and Brees was playing nearby at Purdue. "Obviously, he's just been the ultimate pro, taking care of himself, being in great shape. Credit to him for playing as long as he has at such a high level," Manning continued. "He's just been a great model of consistency, what he and Sean [Payton] have been able to do together for [12] years now." Manning retired after the 2015 season with 71,940 career passing yards and 539 touchdown passes -- both all-time NFL marks. But Brees, 39, needs just 1,496 yards to pass...

Chris Webber will be back on Michigan's campus this season. The former Fab Five star accepted an invitation from Michigan football coach Jim Harbaugh to be an honorary captain at a home game during the 2018 season. Webber was making an appearance on local radio station WTKA 1050-AM in Ann Arbor on Friday when Harbaugh called in to the show and asked Webber if he would be willing to come back, and the former Wolverines basketball standout accepted the invite on the spot. "Coach, you know, that's no problem. I'm definitely honored, and as you know, getting to speak to you over the years, I love what you've done with the program and good luck," Webber said. "Yeah, I'll definitely be a part of it. Followed you guys going to, I think to Rome and all that good stuff.
