Julian Edelman reportedly facing four-game suspension for violating NFL’s PED policy
Patriots wide receiver Julian Edelman missed all of the 2017 season after tearing his ACL in a preseason game. One of Tom Brady’s favorite targets, Edelman hauled in 98 passes for 1,106 yards and three touchdowns in ’16, and was eager to get back on the field this September.
Now it looks like his return will be delayed, but not by injury concerns. According to ESPN’s Field Yates and Adam Schefter, Edelman is facing a four-game suspension for violating the league’s policy on performance-enhancing substances. He is appealing the suspension. As recently as Tuesday, which was also the Patriots’ first day of mandatory minicamp, Edelman spoke about his recovery.

Complicating matters are the Rangers, Blackhawks, Flyers, Senators and New York Islanders, all of whom own multiple first-round picks.

James Worthy was on both of those teams 1983 and 1989 but didn’t actually play in the first sweep because of injury.
So besides Abdul-Jabbar, Johnson and Cooper, the only other player to appear in two finals sweep losses was Wes Unseld with the Bullets in 1971 and 1975.
Golden State could hand James his second sweep loss Friday night. The Warriors lead this year’s NBA Finals 3-0.
Sideline reporter is one of those jobs that, if you think about, is just a cool profession. You’re on the sideline every NFL Sunday, you’ve got sources and you’re breaking stories. On top of all that, you get to develop a rapport with certain players. However, like any job of its nature, it has limited demand and a lot of interest.
It’s not all about what you see on the field. There’s plenty of behind-the-scenes work too. We meet with the home and away team Friday we meet with the home team, Saturday we meet with the away team and you’re usually meeting with the coach and the coordinators and then at least three or four players, Wolfson said of production meetings. She said that over time you learn who will be worth talking to.
