Report: Patriots agree to deal with Jeff Demps

According to a report from Fox 13 reporter Kevin O'Donnell, former Florida Gator Jeff Demps has agreed to a deal with the Patriots. An official announcement is said to come in the afternoon.
The running back was rumored yesterday to be signing with the Buccaneers. As to the Patriots winning out in the end, O'Donnell wrote: "Demps just felt New England is a better fit."
Where would he fit exactly? The team could certainly use the Olympic silver medal sprinter at kick return, if not as a back with a sure burst.
Demps had 2,470 rushing yards and 23 touchdowns in four years at Florida.

NFL owners release statements on Trump comments

President Donald Trump's comments about NFL players and his tweeted dis-invite of the Warriors led to some prominent athletes to speak out. Now NFL franchises and their owners are weighing in.

At a rally in Alabama on Friday night, Trump said NFL owners should fire players who kneel during the national anthem. And he encouraged NFL fans to walk out of games in protest. 

“Wouldn’t you love to see one of these NFL owners, when somebody disrespects our flag, you’d say, ’Get that son of a bitch off the field right now. Out! He’s fired,” Trump told the rally. 

He also lamented that football has become less violent.

“They’re ruining the game,” he complained.
