San Francisco 49ers linebacker Reuben Foster has been fined and suspended without pay for the first two games of the 2018 regular season after violating the NFL's conduct and substances of abuse policies. Foster can return to the 49ers following the team's game against the Detroit Lions on September 16. “I accept the League’s decision and am sorry that my mistakes have hurt my team," Foster said in a statement.
Former Detroit Lions wide receiver Calvin Johnson continues to dispel any notion that he will attempt to return to the NFL. "I don't want to play," Johnson said when asked by TMZ Sports at Los Angeles International airport on Monday.
In Dan Gilbert’s view, there are four pillars to Detroit’s growth: blight, jobs, safety and education.
That’s why the company Gilbert founded, Quicken Loans, awarded $1.2 million in funding to Detroit entrepreneurs at the company's second annual Demo
The San Francisco 49ers announced Friday that they signed guard Laken Tomlinson to a three-year extension through the 2021 season. Tomlinson, 26, started 15 games for the 49ers last season after being acquired 10 months ago from the Detroit Lions. "Laken is a very talented player who has improved consistently since joining the team one week before last year's season opener," 49ers general manager John Lynch said in a statement.
A day after he was waived by the Cleveland Browns, offensive tackle Roderick Johnson was claimed by Houston, the Texans announced on Wednesday. A fifth-round pick out of Florida State in 2017, Johnson didn't see the field in the regular season with Cleveland, spending his entire rookie campaign on injured reserve with a sprained medial collateral ligament and meniscus damage in his knee. The Browns waived him on Tuesday to make room for Greg Robinson, the No. 2 overall pick in 2014 who flamed out with the St. Louis/Los Angeles Rams and was waived midseason last year by the Detroit Lions.
The reported teams were the Detroit Lions, Tennessee Titans, Houston Texans and San Francisco 49ers. Former Patriots defensive coordinator Matt Patricia is now the head coach of Detriot along with the Lions' general manager Bob Quin, who used to work for the Patriots. Mike Vrabel, the head coach of the Titans won three Super Bowls in New England as a linebacker and former Patriots offensive coordinator Bill O'Brien is the head coach in Houston.
The thing about being a top-10 pick in the NFL is someone will always believe in you, until they can’t anymore. Greg Robinson was the second overall pick of the 2014 draft, and he has been a bust. The Detroit Lions, who needed a replacement for injured left tackle Taylor Decker early last season, traded for Robinson but he predictably didn’t play well, suffered an ankle injury and the Lions cut him.
