Sammy Watkins ditches offseason workouts to play poker

04.21.2016     09:32 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
A lot going on with the Buffalo Bills this offseason. Goofball Rex Ryan was recently spotted introducing fellow goofball Donald Trump at a rally in Buffalo. And when voluntary offseason workouts got underway on Monday, wide receiver Sammy Watkins was MIA. Watkins was instead playing poker in North Carolina.


"I know we had a great turnout for [the] voluntary deal; we weren’t 100-percent for attendance, but a couple of guys gave me phone calls, all that stuff," Ryan said. "I won’t get into specifics on who was here and who wasn’t here because it is voluntary, but I’m encouraged by the turnout we have and everybody’s I think excited to get this season going."

Asked specifically about Watkins, Ryan said, "I said I wasn’t going to talk about anybody being here or not being here."

NFL Gambling Update: Tony Romo goes after NFL

02.25.2016     07:42 AM     Printer Friendly
UPDATE

Dallas quarterback Tony Romo is suing the NFL for $1 million over last year's canceled Fantasy Football event that was slated to be held at Las Vegas' Sands Expo. They perhaps picked up a little ammo with Rob Gronkowski recently hosting a cruise that reportedly offered gambling.


“We hope to find out from the very person solely in charge of enforcing the gambling policy,” said lawyer Michael Hurst, who along with Julie Pettit, is representing the NFFC. “We want to know what his position is and why the NFL has taken inconsistent positions in the past.”

NFL Betting News: Raiders to Las Vegas not that far-fetched

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
The Las Vegas Raiders? Oddsmakers are saying it isn't all that much of a longshot.


"A lot of people are talking 10-1 or 100-1, but I would make it much lower," said Jimmy Vaccaro, a veteran Las Vegas oddsmaker. "It's a lot closer to happening than we once thought. I have the lowest odds on the Raiders being here. It should be less than 10-1."
