Rare pair: Wisconsin high school wide receiver teammates share draft dream More If someone dares you to name a wide receiver born in this state over the past 50 years who has had more than a middling career in the NFL, don’t take the bet.
Then in 2017, a group of four former cheerleaders from the San Francisco 49ers and the Oakland Raider filed a class action lawsuit against the NFL, claiming the league conspired to pay them low wages and to keep them from negotiating their pay. However, a judge dismissed the suit. With Davis’ federal claim against the NFL freshly filed, the spotlight is once again on the unfair and harmful policies professional cheerleaders endure on the job. Though she says she’s not getting support from her former teammates on the Saintsations, she plans to press on and try to make a change.
In her interview, she echoes a double-standard that professional cheerleaders have been calling attention to for years. While cheerleaders are forbidden from any contact with players, players are not banned from contacting or being around cheerleaders. That means that if a player shows up to a restaurant where a cheerleader is dining, the cheerleader has to leave.
Carson Wentz on Tuesday met with the media for the first time since the Philadelphia Eagles won Super Bowl LII with Nick Foles leading the way. Wentz not surprisingly was asked about his recovery from a torn ACL in his left knee and where he is in his rehab. I’m not going into specifics, Wentz said at NovaCare Complex, where the Eagles are in the process of starting up offseason activities, via NJ.com.
We’ve started running and all those things. I feel good about where I’m at and I’m trying to stay the course. It’s such a fluid process that it’s hard to put a time table on these things. I wish I knew as well. Things are going well and I’m happy with where I’m at … I feel very good. I started the running progression. However many weeks ago I was throwing. Just to start being able to do all of those things is a good sign. Wentz was asked if he expects to be on the field for a Thursday night showdown in Week 1 with the Minnesota Vikings.
That’s the goal, Wentz said. Much has been made of Wentz’s style of play, with the prevailing belief that his aggressive approach opens him up to injury. Wentz made it clear there are no plans to change the way he plays the quarterback position. First of all there will always be speculation, that’s part of the business, but I’m not going to change. I think I’m always going to learn.
