Dead Body Reportedly Found at Home of Giants CB Janoris Jenkins

Police in Bergen County, New Jersey, have launched an investigation after a body was found at the home of New York Giants cornerback Janoris Jenkins, TMZ Sports reported Tuesday.

According to the report, a worker at Jenkins' house discovered the body in the basement Tuesday morning and alerted authorities. Police have yet to identify the victim, and Jenkins reportedly was traveling out of state when police arrived at the scene.

Tom Pelissero @TomPelissero
The NFL announces allegations against #Panthers owner Jerry Richardson have been substantiated and he's being fined $2.75 million to support organizations addressing race and gender-based issues and fund league-wide workplace training.

You misspelled Fitzmagic.

'Sides, last time we played these rectal clowns, our ridiculous backup quarterback did okay as I recall.

EXACTLY..

(If I had to hazard a guess maybe it would be that Mike knows the offense, Ryan Griffen has yet to impress and Fitz is an elderly chap.. If Mike had the protection of a decent O-Line (which we may have this year) I would understand the move to drop Griffen and bring Mike back.)

Griffin has more time in this offense than Glennon and he hasn't impressed since 2013. What he's getting paid outweighs any type of production he'd offer.

When you're right, you're right.

According to Sportrac, Murray "took home" about $25,000,000 in his career, which probably worked out to $15 mil or so after agents and taxes.

If the dude doesn't want to go to, say, Indianapolis on a 1 Year, $800K contract...good on him. It's an indicator he's made good decisions with his money during his career.

So Le’Veon Bell and the Steelers haven’t come to an agreement on an extension. He will play this year on the franchise tag. His agent is saying it will be his last as a Steeler.

Steelers reportedly offered a 5 year 70 million deal. Apparently the disagreement came from the guaranteed money/years. Steelers and most teams typically don’t give more than 2/3 years worth of guaranteed money. And I gotta side with the club on this one. If Bell wants 4+ years guaranteed at his current or more salary he’s not worth it. No way the production will keep throughout his contract. Steelers will get him in his prime years and receive a nice comp pick.

I'd rather have him for the next 4 years as opposed to just the next 1. He is the top RB and skills position player in the league and is just 26. Without him that is an entirely different Steelers offense. And considering this is probably Ben's last season as well(or it isn't) I'd roll the dice on building my offense around Le'veon Bell for the next 4 years.

You bring up good points. If he’s wanting more than 15 per year and a fully guaranteed contract do you bite? Seems Ben wants to play a few more years (at least for now).

That's almost what they've been giving him the past 2 years. Fully guaranteed salaries.

It depends on how the contract is structured for me. Four more years, age 30 season, for a back who's played 16 games once and has 2,200 touches between the Big Ten and the NFL...Plus he's coming off of a major down year (down almost a full yard a carry from the year before.)

I'm not knocking his greatness. He's one of the few Non-Bucs in the league I'd pay money to watch. But I think the smart money is a contract they can get out of easily in 2 or 3 years. Frankly, I think he did them a huge favor not agreeing to that deal.
