Jason Witten penned a heartfelt tribute for his captain, Tony Romo, as he embarks upon the next chapter of his career at CBS. (via @realjasonwitten82): 14 YEARS MEMORIES FOREVER By Jason Witten Nearly 14 years ago to the day I arrived in Dallas. I was a new member of the Dallas Football Cowboys via the 69th pick in the 2003 NFL Draft was as green as any 20year old Tennessee boy could be, carrying the excitement of a little kid on Christmas Day. anxiously awaited the unique privilege given to me by Mr. Jerry Jones to participate in my first NFL mini-camp. This was an exciting time for I had dreamed about it my entire life. As my heart pounded, I got off the plane. grabbed my luggage and headed for the shuttle, eagerly waiting for the next morning to arrive and my journey as a Dallas Cowboy to begin! Little did I know, that in this short 5-mile ride, the most special relationship in my professional career was sitting next to me and about to begin. On the shuttle that day was a young bright-eyed QB from a small D1 AA school, undrafted, and this sort of Huck Finn way about him. There we were-just two kids on the bus, setting out to chase our dream The days following that now famous shuttle ride were not easy...mostly spent being on the receiving end of colorful language from legendary coach Bill P Truth be told, there were many days over the next 168 months of the relationship that were faced with extreme challenges from people inside and outside of our league. However, knowing what l know now, I must say that there is no one and I mean no one-l would have rather had next to me on this journey other than Tony Romo. After taking a few days to reflect and collect my thoughts,lthought it was fitting and felt a desire to share some thoughts about Tony and why will forever be grateful to A9 and his entire fami ly-Candice, Hawk and Rivers While history might remember 9 for the wins and losses, as a Houdini like playmaker, the epic 4th quarter comebacks, the lack of playoff wins, or the Brett Favre-esque no look passes, will always remember much more. No man can write his own history, and I tend to believe that over time the historians will remember Tony as one of the great signalcallers of his era. For me, I will remember that ultra-driven athlete who worked his tail off to learn how to perfect the proper throwing motion. The player who would stand at the chalk board tirelessly thinking through and dissecting how to block-up a brutal Jim Johnson blitz. A guy who would take command at the line of scrimmage with the authority of a S-star miitary general all while having the charisma of Joe Namath and the competitive fire of Michael Jordan. Tony would break down the nuances of a route tree as if he was the wide-out. Ultimately, he became a player that would set the highest standard for himself, because he knew it would create higher expectations for all of those around him. Players had to play better and coaches had to coach better. Most fondly, I will remember aman with a big heart, who loved to include others and took a great sense of pride in watching them enjoy the fruits of his labor. A man with an infectious personality and a contagious smile and wonderful sons-I know how proud they are proud of their pop It brings a smile to my face knowing that Tony wahave more time with his boys as they come of age. am certain their lives will be better for it, because, with 9 as your pilot, you feel as if you can conquer the world. I know I sure felt that way 9, I am forever grateful to have had you as my QB. Your God.given talent and ability has positively impacted not just my life, but my entire family. lam proud to call you my dear friend and brother for life. Thank you for always believing in me, and I wish you all the best in the next chapter-cheers!! Your Tight End. 82 realjasonwitten82 Jason Witten penned a heartfelt tribute for his captain, Tony Romo, as he embarks upon the next chapter of his career at CBS. (via @realjasonwitten82)

Deleted Text May Clear Aaron Hernandez In Double-Murder Case - blogged by: @MsJennyb ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ In 2015, former NewEnglandPatriots tight-end, AaronHernandez, was sentenced to life in prison without parole after a jury found him guilty of first-degree murder in the death of Odin Lloyd, the boyfriend of his fiancee’s sister. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ A year prior to the guilty verdict, Hernandez was indicted on additional murder charges, in a separate case stemming from the 2012 double-homicide of Daniel de Abreu, 29, and Safiro Furtado, 28. However, based on recently introduced evidence, sources believe Hernandez has a chance to be cleared of the double-murder charges. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ On Thursday, Hernandez’s counsel, Jose Baez, introduced a deleted text message from AlexanderBradley to his lawyer. According to reports, Bradley testified in civil court that Hernandez shot him in the face months after he witnessed Hernandez pull the trigger in the double-murder. In the text, Bradley is suggesting to his lawyer that he didn’t know who shot him, seven months after he witnessed the murder of de Abreu and Furtado. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Bradley tells Baez that he did not recall deleting the text from July 2013, prior to turning his phone over to authorities. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Last Monday, Bradley took the stand against Hernandez, telling jurors that the NFL Baller shot him in the face after he referenced the double-homicide in Boston. According to Bradley, he and Hernandez were leaving a strip club in Florida when Hernandez became paranoid that undercover cops were following him. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “I said, ‘If they are, it’s because of the stupid shit you did in Boston,’ ” Bradley testified. “He became standoffish.

The Patriots recently won their fifth Super Bowl title. The number of New England players saying they’ll skip the traditional champions’ visit to the White House is now up to six, and may get larger. Defensive end Chris Long, running back LeGarrette Blount and defensive tackle Alan Branch added their names to the list Thursday, joining tight end Martellus Bennett, defensive back Devin McCourty and linebacker Dont’a Hightower as having publicly stated an intention not to accompany the team on its expected trip to Washington later this year. Some, but not all, of the six players cited an antipathy to President Trump as their reason.It is even possible that an invitation from 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. won’t be extended to New England at all, despite the ties to Kraft, Brady and Belichick, if enough players stage a boycott and Trump’s own team decides that the optics would be bad for him. According to ESPN, the tradition dates back to at least 1865, when President Andrew Johnson received a pair of amateur baseball squads, and ramped up under President Ronald Reagan, quickly becoming a rite of championship passage for many college and professional teams. 17thsoulja BlackIG17th newenglandpatriots: At least six Patriots now say they'll skip White House visit PAIRPTS PALRIDT (a 17thsoulia4 The Patriots recently won their fifth Super Bowl title.

It’s just some of the things that — I just don’t feel welcome in that house, I’m going to just leave it at that.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ On the flip side, Alan Branch and Dont’a Hightower declined the White House invitation for non presidential reasons. “I’m going to hang with family and continue to celebrate until next season starts,” Branch told Sirus XM radio, while Hightower essentially has ‘been-there-done-that’ three times in his football career — twice as a member of Alabama’s BCS title-winning teams and once when the Patriots won the Super Bowl in 2015. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ We already know why Martellus Bennett and Devin McCourty won’t be in attendance.
