Josh Norman won’t let release go, says Panthers aren’t ‘family’ enough
This quote from Norman about life in Carolina is juxtaposed hilariously with his quote about being in Washington:
“Taking in a view like this, you see everything the city has to offer,” he says. “The freedom, the power, the glory. I can have it all here.”
“Don’t worry,” Juliano, the publicist, reminds him. “The kids have all been made aware, and everything has been refunded.”
The whole thing just reeks of someone who remains mad about being dumped. Norman will have plenty of opportunities to get back at the Panthers once the season starts without looking petty this offseason.
Sam Bradford lost his leverage when the Broncos balked at his price tag.
That was Bradford’s only option all along, honestly. Having the Eagles draft a quarterback early and proceeding to pout about it and demand a trade was a terrible look.
Especially when, and we’ll say this again, Bradford’s biggest concern was becoming a bridge quarterback … except he signed a two-year contract. Really it was just a one-year deal with a second-year option. That’s the definition of a bridge contract.
Anyway, about that compensation Condon mentioned during his interview. According to Andrew Brandt of ESPN, the Eagles were asking for multiple high picks in exchange for Bradford. Specifically, two second-round picks.
After paying $11M bonus, of course Eagles asked for a lot in trade – two 2nd-rounders – to justify investment. And of course Denver said no.

Did John Elway stop Howie Roseman/Condon at “two” or did he let him get to “second-round” before he cut him off and hung up? There was just a zero-percent chance the Broncos, who refused to give up a fourth-round pick for Colin Kaepernick in a trade with the 49ers, were willing to give up a pair of second-round picks ahead of the 2016 NFL Draft.
“All I know is, everyone kept telling me, ‘The police don’t care about this stuff, you’ll never get caught,'” Caldwell said. “And the next thing I know I’m headed to prison, saying goodbye to my kids, wondering. ‘What happened to me?'”
Starting a gambling ring right next to an elementary school sounds bad, until you realize what happened next.
Caldwell heard he could make some serious money selling a synthetic type of MDMA (a pure form of MDMA would be ecstasy or ‘Molly’). The former receiver decided to order some synthetic MDMA from China, and that’s when things got ugly.
