Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz has visited Haiti multiple times and wants to do something to improve life in the most impoverished country in the Western Hemisphere. He’s hoping a significant donation will help.
Wentz announced on Twitter that he’s matching up to $500,000 in donations to build a sports complex that is being planned in Haiti.
The complex will have 10 soccer fields, two indoor basketball courts, six outdoor basketball courts, 5,000 shaded seat track and field, dormitories for 200 people, locker rooms and a community park with Wi-Fi, a play space and lighting.
In recent years, LSU has not leaned heavily on its backs as pass-catchers. Guice caught just 32 passes over three seasons. In the same amount of time, Leonard Fournette pulled down just 41 grabs, but the Jaguars back showed what he can do with 36 catches last season as a rookie.
Mickell started his college career as a receiver before moving to the secondary. He made 85 tackles two sacks and three interceptions in his final two seasons.
Scales was named a team captain and MVP in 2016 when he led the country with 23.5 tackles for loss. He also had seven sacks and led the Big Ten with 126 tackles. Last season as a senior, Scales made 12.5 tackles for loss and six sacks.
And now he’s back with the Saints on a deal that makes him just the 34th-highest-paid cornerback in football.
Ben Roethlisberger’s least favorite move of the offseason was actually one of the best draft decisions of the year.
Quarterback is the most important position in the game, and the Pittsburgh Steelers know they can’t be caught without a succession plan under center. Oklahoma State product Mason Rudolph gives them a quality option out of Round 3, and he presented great value in that No. 76 spot.
