It might have exempted his employer at the time negotiations started, but might not have allowed for any future changes in who was paying him.
    Brown's legal team has issued another blanket denial of misconduct in response to the new allegations. The second accuser, whose name hasn't been revealed, is neother seeking to press charges nor seeking remuneration, but said she chose to voice her experience to support Brittney Taylor to show she was not alone in her experiences with Brown.

    The second accuser is an artist who was painting him and alleges that AB was in house and walked out wearing nothing but a loin cloth while he had a convo with her. Creepy shit, but itís not quite as serious as the rape allegation

    The NFL is going to be forced to set precedence here ... and guys like Big Ben and AB are going to have to be put on notice that you'll be gone.

    I don't see the NFL ignoring this one.

    The second accuser saying that he walked out to her with only a loincloth on is relevant because thats the kind of thing the first accuser said he was doing at first, before it escalated on subsequent visits going into the assault/rape territory. It establishes a pattern, and frankly one consistent with the profile of a woman abuser type. Also, weirdly, I heard OJ stuck up for Brown. Wow.

The Pats' success is pretty much predicated on keeping Tom Brady in one piece, if opponents start getting to Brady and roughing him up, things could get dicey for Darth Hoodie and company.
    Your ignoring the fact that the offense is throwing pick sixes like the second coming Matt Schaub so not all those points are on the defense. The defense actually played pretty good yesterday til midway through the 3rd quarter at which point they were beyond gassed due to the offense's constant three and outs. Then the offense threw back to back pick sixes and the team just gave up.

    Not saying they are a great defense, just that on a team with a competent offense they could be a slightly below average defense.

    Here's the Sports Illustrated article on Brown and the new allegations.

    Sigh, I really am moved to not want him on my Patriots now. The mounting list of allegations only seems to hint this is only going to get worse.

    When the Dolphins traded their Pro Bowl star LB Kiko Alonso for the Saints backup LB we linda knew the defense was not gonna be that good.

    They already had lost a number of pieces on that defense the last couple seasons. But the combination of trading away a star LT and Alonso on defense gutted this team.

    NFL News..

    - Former 1st rd 2017 pick Taco Charlton of the Cowboys has vented online he wants traded. Charlton tweeted free me and later deleted it. But claimed he was frustrated after being declared inactive for the last 2 games.


    - Jagaurs CB Jalen Ramsay demanded a trade after a sideline confrontation with coach Doug Marrone. Ramsay is a highly rated CB and wants to play a man to man scheme than zone he's been pushed into. Also he has said he plans to leave in free agency as he wants to save money on taxes and look at things outside football.


    - Drew Brees will miss 6 weeks due to an injured hand he had surgery on.

    The Dolphins trade Minkah Fitzpatrick to the Steelers for a 2020 1st round pick. Weird on the Steelers part. They just lost Big Ben, and that pick may go really high if the team lose a ton of more games. Would a safety really be the right direction to go if you have to rebuild? Guess they really think Mason is the future.

    Yeah I don't think this is a good by the Steel City

    I could see the Seahawks making a run for Ramsay

    He is. His arm strength is not good and his accuracy is overrated. He will get a shitty draw having to prove himself on this Miami team, but it'd be true anywhere. He's not any good.

    When Rudolph was selected the Steelers brass was very high on him. Claiming they felt he was the best QB in that class of 2018.

    A lot of Steeler fans are thinking Rothlisberger will retire in 2020 after his surgery. Because he debated playing in pain back a year or 2 ago. So this maybe what drives him to retire.

    They either have supreme confidence Rapistberger will be back or they have full faith in Rudolph as their QB of the future.

    I keep seeing Rapistberger referred to as a future Hall of Famer should this be it for him but I don't see him getting in. Stat wise he's there but we also live in an era of inflated passing stats and we've seen how thats affected receivers who on stats alone should get in but aren't - Isaac Bruce for instance.

    I see a glut of QB's coming into eligibility soon all with massive stats so to me the dividing line will be whether your considered one of the greatest players at your position and Ben isn't even close. Looking at his peers Tom Brady, Peyton Manning, Drew Brees, and Aaron Rodgers will all be obviously considered before him. He overlaps with Kurt Warner and Brett Favre for the early parts of his career and Patrick Mahomes now. And then there a few short year wonders like Cam Newton or long time solid QB's like Matt Ryan who don't have the rings but will put up comparable stats by the end of their careers. He's not even close to be considered a top 5 QB of his generation and there are few years you would even consider him a top 5 QB that year. And he's always going to get lumped with Eli Manning and Phillip Rivers due all being drafted together and they have similar stats and Eli has the rings to match. Despite the lack of rings Rivers is probably the best QB of the three but he plays for bad luck Chargers.

    Much like with Isaac Bruce I think the voters will end up rejecting him, Eli Manning, and Phillip Rivers barring River's somehow leading the Chargers to a superbowl. Eli has fallen off a cliff so I don't think there are any more titles in his future.

    Rothlisberger will go in. If say Joe Namath with worse career stats and 1 Super Bowl goes in then its pretty clear Rothlisberger will make it in.
