For what it's worth JJ has said TJ is far ahead of where he was at that age. Seems like a good pick.

I'm happy the Jets have picked up Adams and Maye. Our secondary was utter gash and needed an overhaul. Still holes all over the place mind you.

Traded up when there was no need to do so. Overpaid dearly for the privilege, And then made a tremendous reach for a QB who is developmental at best.


Bizarre. They never even met with the kid then sold the farm to move up 1 spot to get him when they could've stayed where they were or even potentially moved down and still made the pick! Bears fans must be absolutely fuming. :lol:

There is something satisfying about saying the name Samaje Perine...
Might be more new favourite NFL name.

So, Aaron Hernandez is no longer a convicted murderer. A Massachusetts judge has overturned his conviction, and he's now an innocent man. What I don't understand is whether this would have happened if he had not taken his own life.

^^^

Don't think so...as I understand it state law means that the conviction is quashed if someone dies during and appeal.

I read something that suggested he knew that and maybe it prompted the suicide when it happened, as he'll be 'innocent' so his girlfriend and kid might be entitled to some sort of pay out.

Just heard the explanation on the radio. You're correct. In the Commonwealth the case gets thrown out if the defendant dies during the proceedings. Apparently he wrote in his suicide note to his wife something like, "You're rich!" There will be civil cases coming, so chance are that his wife/partner will not be rich. the money will probably go to the families of the victims.
