Activity in the NFL both on and off the field is one of the most popular betting lines for sports bettors. The league attracts the largest attendance rates in North American professional sports leagues, and games are regularly open for bets through sports books across the US and Canada.
Dennard was found guilty yesterday of third-degree felonious assault of a police officer and misdemeanor resisting arrest and will be sentenced April 11, and he faces a maximum of six years in jail and $11,000 in fines for the two guilty charges.
After a weeklong trial at Lancaster County District Court in Lincoln, Neb., a 12-person jury deliberated for nearly six hours Tuesday and an hour and a half yesterday before reaching the guilty verdicts. They also found Dennard not guilty of a separate misdemeanor assault charge.

It was late December when Vick’s patience had been sucked dry with his teammates but according to him ‘I wasn’t pointing the finger at one person’.
The reason to explore a contract extension with Matthew is to fulfill that goal of having him be our quarterback for a long time. It’s not a short-term look at the salary cap. That’s the wrong way to look at that. When you look at extending somebody like Matthew, he’s not going to take less money to extend.
Offensive tackle Ed Wang played six games for the Bills in 2010.
Wang (6-5, 315 pounds) played six games in 2010 for the Bills, who drafted him in the fifth round out of Virginia Tech. He hasn’t played in an NFL game since, although he spent some time last season with the Raiders.
Wang, 25, will compete for a roster spot this spring and summer. The Eagles have a stable of tackles behind projected starters Jason Peters and Todd Herremans, including Dennis Kelly, Nate Menkin, Allen Barbre, Matt Reynolds and Matt Kopa. Veteran tackle King Dunlap, who just finished his fifth season, had his contract expire and isn’t expected to return.
“(Charles Woodson) has been an integral part of the Packers’ success and our Super Bowl title in 2010 would not have been possible without his contributions,” general manager Ted Thompson said in a release. “A once-in-a-generation talent as a player, he is also a great leader and ambassador for the organization off the field.”
Turning 37 years old in October, Woodson has suffered two broken collarbones the last three years. And entering his 16th NFL season, he was due a base salary of $6.5 million with a roster bonus of $2.5 million the first day of training camp.
a 22-year-old, as the 23-year-old Martin gained over 250 yards and scored four times against the Raiders. Martin would have a fantastic rookie season beyond that one outstanding performance, earning a Pro Bowl selection and finishing in the top five for Rookie of the Year. In fact, Martin had the second best season for a running back in team history, and the best season for a Buccaneer rookie runner. He contributed in all phases of the running back’s duties, as an excellent runner, pass catcher, and pass blocker. But will there be a sophomore slump?
USC’s Matt Barkley will throw. If the top quarterbacks in this class both go full workout, others at the position will surely follow.
The decision makes sense for both players. Smith has a big arm and shouldn’t have anything to hide. Barkley can use the event to convince teams of his arm strength and prove he’s 100 percent healthy after a sprained shoulder prematurely ended his senior season.
Quarterbacks are using this combine to sell themselves as first-round talent. It makes sense they would take advantage of a full workout to state their case.
The Steelers were one interception too many from making the playoffs in 2012, but as thin a line as that may be, Kevin Colbert said the decisions to make changes will come easier because of it.
“When you’re 12-4 and a playoff team, sometimes you get mesmerized by your success and you get a little reluctant to change,” Colbert said, referring to the Steelers record in 2010 and 2011.
“If we don’t change a roster that produced 8-8, we’d be silly to expect a better result because it’s the same group of guys. … I guess it’s easier to make decisions to change when you’re 8-8 than when you’re 12-4.”
Take a good look at that 2012 team photo of the Steelers because many won’t be back.
The Steelers are still evaluating players and planning how to get into salary-cap compliance by the March 12 deadline. The cap is expected to be similar to a year ago, around $121 million per team. The Steelers are projected to be at least $10 million over that right now.
They will get under it, Colbert said, through contract terminations and likely extensions and reconstructed contracts.
He sounded as if none of their impending free agents will get contract offers before they can hit the open market March 12.
