NFL players, past and present, are having trouble staying out of trouble lately.
While Justin Blackmon still has the NFL stamp keeping him out of jail, he will watch the Jaguars' first four games this season.
This is a big strike two for Justin, who is heading into his second NFL season. His career could last another 10 years. It could just as easily last another year or two.
Another wide receiver who's NFL is likely done is Titus Young Sr. The former Lions receiver was arrested three times last week, with two of those coming in less than 24 hours.
After the third arrest, Richard Young, Titus' father, has finally come to his son's aide (sort of).
The elder Young says his son has a brain disorder and needs help. ESPN reported that Richard spoke with the Detroit News and the Detroit Free Press.
As someone who will likely be out of the NFL for good, Titus will have a lot of time on his hands. Whether it is spent at home or in jail, he needs to learn how to spent it more efficiently.
Another former NFL-er made headlines again today. That man is O.J. Simpson.
He is back in court in regards to a 2007 robbery.
Reports say that Simpson led five men in an armed robbery in Las Vegas, Nevada. His sentence time will be nine to 33 years.
What a finish it was at the Players!
One complaint about golf is how slow it is, but the final round really leave fans on the edge. Whether they are watching on TV or on the other side of the ropes, there's nothing quite like a finish like we saw today.
Tiger Woods claims his second Players championship (2001 and 2013) and the Island Green will haunt Sergio Garcia until he comes back next year.
As for David Lingmerth, he has to feel good about his tie for 2nd. Despite a good opportunity to take 2nd by himself, and a 3-putt on 18, he will walk away from his first trip to the Players with just over $700,000.
And as for Roberto Castro, he should be proud of his top 20 finish and his $107,000. He will definitely move up in the world golf rankings.
There really is nothing like 16-18 on Sunday at the Players!
