Gorodetsky in May shared a photo on Instagram of himself and Odell Beckham Jr

Gorodetsky recalls lending Beckham $10,000 to play blackjack, and he also showed USA Today a text message purportedly of Beckham expressing interest in making a $20,000 bet on a baseball game.

According to sports betting sources, NFL players are allowed to wager on sports through legal operators, but Gorodetsky says the baseball bet was never made, anyway.

Meanwhile, through his agent, Zeke Sandhu, Beckham denies even knowing Gorodetsky.

At the beginning of the season when it was clear I didn’t have a role anymore, I asked to be released. Throughout the season, I was told week in & out that I’d be used. I wasn’t. I started getting frustrated about the whole thing. I asked to not be dressed or take unnecessary practice reps if I wasn’t going to play. That happened for a cpl weeks, then we had a a game week that I got solid reps in practice and everyone assumed I would play. I got to the stadium four hours early as usual, and my locker was empty. Nobody said anything to me about being inactive, just an empty locker. I asked to be released again. I was told no.

A couple weeks later, they dress me for the game so I assume I’m going to play, and I get zero reps. Stood on the sideline the whole game. I asked to be released again. I was told no. Then a few days later, they released me. I was never told I would be brought back, it was: If I bring u back, be in shape. I cleared waivers, and they didn’t call. New England called. Also, to be clear, ask Ryan if I came to see him in the hospital. I didn’t help Bud or T.J.? Ask T.J. if I helped him.

Trufant, 27, was not flagged for the altercation. Instead, Thomas received a 15-yard penalty during the game, but upon further review, Trufant was handed a fine.

Despite last week’s loss, the Falcons can still make the playoffs with a win this week against the Panthers or a Seahawks loss.

That’s a big part of why I’m standing here today, Quinn said. I think there’s games we could’ve, would’ve and should’ve won, and we didn’t.

This is a results business. This is wins and losses. You talk about all the individual plays, all the individual players, the staff, all that stuff. It comes down to winning football games and winning championships.

Quinn took some of the onus of the Lions’ identical 9-7 records over the past two years, but also said he felt the teams of the past two seasons were capable of better records than what they finished with.

Week 5 will feature some dire quarterback situations.

Derek Carr’s back injury will throw EJ Manuel into Oakland’s starting lineup; Manuel is 6-11 all time as a starter. If Marcus Mariota’s hamstring strain keeps him from playing, the Titans will have to turn to thrift store mannequin Matt Cassel in his place.

And then you have the veteran starters who have been microwaved trash. Cutler is earning $10 million to throw for fewer than six yards per pass. Blake Bortles is completing less than 55 percent of his passes. Joe Flacco, in the midst of his worst season as a pro, has thrown for just 150 yards per game.

More than a decade later, Manning’s aversion to San Diego still hasn’t been explained much. Last year, Archie Manning said he didn’t have anything to do with the decision and Eli has reportedly told Giants teammates that Condon was the driving force.

You don’t get very many athletes like that who come along, Fox said to reporters this week as he prepared to face his former player. We got criticized quite heavily by the talking heads for not taking a quarterback. I know Joey Harrington was available (and) David Carr went a pick before us.

You could tell (Peppers) was going to be special. The fact that he’s still playing is pretty special.

On Sunday, Peppers will return to Soldier Field as the Carolina Panthers (4-2) visit the Chicago Bears (2-4). Peppers spent four seasons with the Bears from 2010 to 2013 after playing eight years with the Panthers.

Now, the 37-year-old is back home in Carolina as his career winds down. He has 150 career sacks and needs one more to move past former Minnesota Vikings great Chris Doleman for No. 4 on the all-time list.

we’ve got you covered in this week’s free-agent finds.

OK, so Deshaun Watson being an absolute dream to watch in the NFL isn’t surprising to anyone who even half paid attention to college football for the last few years. And Watson already throwing for more touchdown passes than Brock Osweiler did all last season for the Texans isn’t surprising, either. But leading the NFL in touchdowns? Yeah, wasn’t expecting that one after the first six weeks of the season.

After a three-touchdown game against the Browns, Watson’s total is now more than Tom Brady. More than Drew Brees. More than Alex Smith. He tops the league with 15 passing touchdowns (and for good measure, he’s got two more on the ground).

Naturally, the two reserve running backs of note in Dallas top this waiver column, but allow me to say this: We don’t know for sure which one will be the starter or if it’ll even be a singular starter. Maybe Darren McFadden and Alfred Morris will share top duties. In an ideal world, you can add both players and roster them for as long as it takes to sort this out. That’s an unlikely luxury to have, but for practical purposes, that’s the best-case scenario.

And whether you’re looking to replace Zeke or the recently injured Aaron Rodgers, we’ve got you covered in this week’s free-agent finds.

Sometimes, the unpredictability nature of sports is our favorite thing about it. Other times, there are injuries, like a bucket of ice water poured over our souls.

Aaron Rodgers, fresh off ripping the still-beating hearts out of the chest of every Cowboys faithful, took a hard (but legal) hit in the first quarter of the Packers’ game against the Vikings. Anyone who saw the play instinctively knew the bad news that would soon be coming: broken collarbone, could be out for the season.

Rodgers is one of the NFL’s most important players. He’s every superlative you could say about a quarterback. His injury doesn’t just affect the Packers or the NFC North race. It has major implications for the rest of the NFL.

Through four games, Brown has 30 catches for 388 yards and one touchdown.

The DBs kind of got lost. They got turned around. They lost track of him, Roethlisberger said. So it looks really bad. It looks like I missed him, and sometimes those things happen.

But that wasn’t what happened on this particular play. Roethlisberger read the defense and decided to work away from Brown because of the coverage.

Roethlisberger said that Brown may be one of the best wideouts to ever play the game, and outbursts like this one take away from what he does on the field.

So I don’t know that he needs to react that way, Roethlisberger said. He’s superhuman on the football field, and when that happens, it almost brings him back to being a mere mortal, if you will, because it just gets in his head and it just messes with all of us a little bit.

Peterson had a 45-yard run called back because of an illegal use of hands penalty. On the next play, Fitzgerald fumbled and Lavonte David returned it 21 yards for a touchdown. The 2wo-point conversion cut the Arizona lead to 31-20 with 12:56 to play.

Asiata couldn’t quite comprehend it. He had just seen him in the huddle, had lined up behind him at running back for a play in a noncontact drill. Nobody ever gets badly hurt in a noncontact drill. Asiata listened to the screams and thought: He must be faking it. It’s a prank, something Teddy thought up with the linemen. This can’t be real.

But the noise kept coming, and the trainers filled the void left by the scattered bodies. Asiata ran back toward Bridgewater and then veered off. He and a couple of teammates took a knee and said a prayer. They closed their eyes to pray for their teammate. They closed their eyes so they wouldn’t have to see.

Everything happens for a reason, Asiata says, without much conviction.

Roethlisberger described the play that triggered Brown’s outburst.

That play is designed to beat a man concept defense. A.B. kind of runs a route and then takes off deep, and it’s designed for man, Roethlisberger said. Well, they gave us what was the 22-man look. So there’s two high safeties, and everybody else was man underneath. So as soon as I saw that defense on the pre-snap, safety Eric Weddle ran back to kind of a two-high shelf. A.B. instantly is I have to get off of him.

So Roethlisberger adjusted, and ended up checking down to Le’Veon Bell. The pass was high and went incomplete, and the Steelers were forced to punt. And Brown pulled off a double move and got separation. He ended up being wide open.

Riveron said clear and obvious is the standard that is used to overturn any call and this definitely met that criteria.

He was always a really fun player to watch at UGA, Sumner said, That has continued with his performance in the NFL.

When Griff woke up this morning I did show him the shout out from Todd Gurley and he was all smiles, still saying he couldn’t believe he actually got to see him and the Rams play.
The Rams reached out to the family to see if they were still in Jacksonville, but no arrangements have been made for a meetup yet. Whether or not that happens, it was still an incredible moment for the family, and a young boy whose dream came true.

He’s just professional. No matter what happened, no matter how many times he didn’t get the ball, he really never brought that in here or, you know, pointed fingers or anything. He just put his head down and came to work the next day. So I appreciate that, and I have tons of respect for him.

After missing his first kick, rookie Harrison Butker hit a 26-yarder for his first NFL field goal.

It was a lot of short passes from Alex Smith on the 13-play, 68-yard drive.

Washington 17, Chiefs 14: Vernon Davis used to be one of the most dangerous tight ends in the league. We got a reminder of that in vintage style Monday with an incredible 69-yard catch-and-run that set up Washington’s second touchdown of the game. Ryan Grant scored the touchdown with a reception from 3 yards out, but Davis did the hard work to make it happen. He’s still got wheels.

Chiefs 14, Washington 10: Washington almost had a huge goal line stop, but Preston Smith was ruled offsides on third-and-goal. That gave the Chiefs a second chance half the distance to the goal, and Alex Smith punched it in from 1-yard out to put the Chiefs ahead. That’s the 14th rushing touchdown of Smith’s career.

Washington 10, Chiefs 7: In an update coming out of halftime, it was revealed on Monday Night Football that Josh Norman is undergoing x-rays and could end up missing multiple weeks with a rib injury. He won’t be returning for the second half against Kansas City.

And yes, the first month of the 2017 season has been a disaster, but are the Giants really that far from fixing their problems and being an NFC East contender again in 2018? The defense was No. 2 in points allowed last year and still has all the important pieces like Landon Collins, Olivier Vernon, and Janoris Jenkins.

Injuries happen and if the receivers come back healthy next year, the Giants would be in much better position to recreate their 11-5 season from 2016 than they would with Webb, Geno Smith, a rookie, or any free agent signing.

It’s also possible that Manning would nix any trade. He negotiated a no-trade clause in his deal in 2015 and has told reporters he has no interest in playing elsewhere (although, that’s really the only correct answer).

Nothing about the Steelers looks remotely successful right now.

They’ve lost games to the Bears and the Jaguars in the last three weeks. Ben Roethlisberger sounded like a man who wished he had gone ahead and retired after his five-interception performance against Jacksonville. He waved those comments off a couple days later, but it’s clear that all is not well inside the locker room.

Yet, there are the Steelers, 3-2, perched on top of the division standings by virtue of wins over the Browns and Ravens.

Panic index: The Ravens are also 3-2, but nowhere near as talented. But if the Steelers can’t find a way to fix what’s ailing their offense, this might come down to the wire, or at least whoever can beat up on the rest of the division.

We know what did happen. The Chargers were in the end zone three plays later, and they would go on to earn their first dub of the season. All thanks to Ingram having risen to the occasion.

Now, my first inclination was to name Ingram as Hoss of the Week for that play alone. Then after I watched the tape and saw numerous other plays he made throughout the game I was just about sold. However, as I reviewed the film, I simply could not ignore how many plays Bosa was making as well.

Bosa may not have made the big play of the game, but he damn sure made a lot of other plays to help keep the game within reach. What’s more, both Ingram and Bosa helped each other get at least one of the two sacks a piece they each recorded on the day.

On this play, he reaches the defensive end, then blocks the free runner, who the back has to beat for a touchdown.

Along with the running game, Carson Wentz has improved in every meaningful quarterback stat. He finally has competent receivers and a favorite target: his tight end. Among NFL tight ends, Ertz leads in targets, receptions, receiving yards and receptions for a first down at 20!

Adrian Peterson will get more opportunities with the Cardinals, but it won’t matter

Adrian Peterson’s tenure in New Orleans was a short one. Four games, 27 carries, 81 yards, and zero touchdowns. Now he’ll get the opportunity to underwhelm with an Arizona Cardinals team desperate for tailback help.

On Tuesday, the Cardinals traded a conditional pick to the Saints to pick up the 32-year-old tailback. He’ll join a depth chart that includes Andre Ellington and Kerwynn Williams. He’ll battle for touches with fellow 32-year-old (and former 2,000-yard rusher) Chris Johnson.

Now, I am Mr. Go-For-It, a believer in advanced analytics and a member of the Cult of Barnwell. I would love to celebrate Reid’s boldness (process over outcome!), but I’m just not sure the risk was worth it.

Here now is the Bortlest pair of plays possible: On second down, Blake Bortles is sacked and fumbles, but Jags are able to recover the ball. Then, on third-and-14, Bortles sails a pass over a wide receiver (who is well short of the sticks); the ball bounces off the receivers’ outstretched fingertips and into the hands of a defensive back for an interception. It’s all there in two plays: poor pocket awareness, bad decision-making, and costly inaccuracy.

I know the They could have Colin Kaepernick on their team! refrain is growing old, but for me it’s growing old because it’s EXHAUSTING to think about the success that mediocre teams could enjoy if they cared more about winning than not signing a guy whose activism offends the NFL’s ruling class.

This is perhaps the most startling realization of looking at Mr. Met. At first glance you see a happy baseball man.

Obviously this is fine. The Mets are in agreement that pursuing their own sexual desires is fair game. However, there is no evidence Mr. Met has ever been propositioned by anyone. Half of baseball is interested in Mrs. Met, while he wastes away on Citi Field unsatisfied.

When this is paired with endless abuse on social media by mascots rubbing their carnal desires in his face, well, it’s enough to drive anyone to their breaking point.

Not sure how this plays into Mr. Met flipping off a fan, but it probably does.

This is perhaps the most startling realization of looking at Mr. Met. At first glance you see a happy baseball man. But when you stare closer, you realize something is off.

Perhaps no two teams have lasted through more dramatic survival scenarios into the CWS finals than LSU and Florida. The Tigers benefited from a friendly call on a foul ball that should’ve been called fair, while the Gators benefited from a friendly review that ruled their shot to deep left fair. Those calls happened on the same day, some hours apart, and college baseball definitely needs mandatory review, like now.

Florida’s team ERA is 3.49, an impressively low mark for a cohort of college baseball throwers though it’s no Oregon State, which sported a team ERA of 1.86 for the year and still got bounced by the Tigers. LSU’s staff ERA was 3.57, no less impressive. Especially given Alex Lange and Jared Poche’s collective work on the mound, which nearly mirrors Florida’s Alex Faedo and Brady Singer: Faedo threw 2.26 for the season, Singer 3.18; Lange hurled a 2.97, Poche 3.33. Too bad that Faedo pitched on Saturday and he’s likely out of commission for the duration.

We haven’t heard much about Gary Sanchez this season

O’Linger has no concerns about pitching out his arm because his post-baseball designs don’t include baseball at all. He’s already been accepted to a pharmacy postgraduate program at the University of Florida, after graduating Phi Beta Kappa with a 4.0 grade point average.

In September 2012, Cooke was returning to Charlotte after a recruiting visit when a drunk driver slammed into the back of his Dodge Caravan at more than 100 miles per hour.

Consider the roster. By Cooke’s count, only three of his starters and 12 to 13 players on his roster are getting any baseball money from Davidson’s limited scholarship resources. The rest must find their way at a place known for its strong academics and cozy feel with 2,000 undergraduates. But it ain’t cheap. Next year, it’ll cost $63,000 to cover everything.

Ben Markham of Viva El Birdos makes a convincing case for the Cardinals to completely tear everything down and rebuild the team, even though he admits it has a 0% chance of happening.

We haven’t heard much about Gary Sanchez this season, but doesn’t mean he isn’t playing well. And saying he’s playing well is a huge understatement.

John Farrell got up close and personal with umpire Bill Miller last night. He was so up close and personal that Miller ejected him for allegedly poking him in the chest.

The Nationals have been less prolific than is typical of their league-leading offense, too, and have relied on solid relief appearances (!?) to preserve two- and one-run leads. It’s probable that Wednesday will hold more of the same, but, ya know, with like, Kershaw and Strasburg pitching. Think of all the bowel-breaking curveballs.
