A-Rod busted for illegal poker games?

From Comcast SportsNet Thursday, August 4, 2011
CHICAGO (AP) -- Alex Rodriguez's publicist says the Yankees third baseman is looking forward to cooperating with Major League Baseball in its investigation of his alleged involvement in illegal poker games. Star Magazine reported last month that several people saw A-Rod playing in games hosted at Hollywood hotels and residences. But Richard Rubenstein, Rodriguez's publicist, says in a statement Thursday morning that the Star's story contains "numerous factual inaccuracies." A spokesman for the Yankees declined comment when asked about Rodriguez on Wednesday. The 36-year-old Rodriguez had right knee surgery on July 14 and is expected to resume baseball activities on Thursday at the Yankees' facility in Florida.

Steven Scheu, TE, Vanderbilt
Woodrow Hamilton, DT, Mississippi State
CJ Johnson, LB, Mississippi State
V’Angelo Bentley, CB, Illinois
Jonathan Jones, CB, Auburn

Foster is arguably the highest profile player the Patriots signed and was filmed celebrating the moment.

Foster has the versatility the Patriots looks for. He played running back over his first three collegiate seasons before shifting to wide receiver. He finished his career at Arizona State with 666 total touches for 4,813 yards and 32 touchdowns.
