NFL owner has big questions about Raiders’ possible move to Las Vegas
“I want to see all the research on whether [Las Vegas] can support a franchise or not,” Blank said. “It’s no different than any other city we look at.”
The good news for the Raiders is that Blank doesn’t seem all that concerned about gambling.
“I think, obviously, we’d have to build a wall around the football operations and the franchise itself, which I think they can do effectively,” Blank said. “That [gambling] opportunity exists in any market.”
As a whole, the league seems to have softened its stance on gambling. NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell has said on several occasions that the league won’t step in if the owners approve a Raiders move to Vegas. All the Raiders have to do now is convince owners like Blank that Vegas is the right play for the NFL.
T.O. added, “It shouldn’t matter who they’re drafting or who’s coming in.”
But it does, obviously, even though the Eagles want Bradford to be the starter in 2016 while Carson Wentz, the No. 2 pick in the draft, gets acclimated to the NFL.
However, not everyone is convinced that Odell’s cousin got ripped naturally. While meeting with reporters over the weekend, Beckham said that he often gets asked if he’s ever used steroids or any other performance-enhancing drug.
“That’s something that’s not new to me. It’s tough because I work so hard. I worked that hard all my life,” Beckham said, via the Associated Press. “And you can’t just change people’s minds. If they feel like, ‘What you look like or what you do, you can’t do that without having whatever substances,’ it’s crazy. All I have to say is that I’m here, and they’ve done their tests or whatever. I’m cool. I’ve never had to do anything, and I’m fine.”
That’s the main thing to keep in mind. If Terron makes it in the NFL, he’s going to be tested and if he’s passing the tests, then there’s probably no reason for anyone to be suspicious of him.
Anyway, Odell’s cousin also made sure to point out one other thing about his physique.
“I have great genetics,” Terron said. “I work hard. And that’s all I have to say about that.”
Former Bears general manager Phil Emery drafted Bostic, a linebacker from Florida, in the second round of the 2013 NFL Draft. In his first two seasons, Bostic played in 29 games, compiling 140 combined tackles, two sacks and one interception.
