general manager Ozzie Newsome testified und

Baltimore Ravens general manager Ozzie Newsome testified under oath Thursday that he heard suspended running back Ray Rice tell NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell he struck his then-fiancee in a casino elevator in February, according to ESPN. Newsomes testimony on the second and final day of Rices appeal hearing would seem to contradict what the NFL commissioner has previously said the running back told him during a disciplinary hearing on June 16. Goodell has said Rice was ambiguous about what happened in the elevator at the Revel Casino Hotel in Atlantic City. The commissioner, who testified on Wednesday, suspended Rice indefinitely on Sept. 8 after video of him striking the woman who is now his wife was posted online by TMZ. Rice was released by the Ravens on the same day. Goodell originally suspended Rice for two games after their meeting in June, but later said he didnt get it right. Rice argues that the league violated labor laws by increasing his punishment after the video surfaced. He and his wife testified on Thursday. Former U.S. District Judge Barbara S. Jones presided over the appeal hearing and will now decide whether or not Rice is reinstated. It was the first time an NFL disciplinary hearing was conducted with a neutral arbitrator, something the NFL Players Association said enhances the credibility and integrity of our business and is the due process that every athlete deserves. 49ers Jerseys China Cheap .

"Its a process and theres no carryover. You start over again and you try to get something done," Brandon told The Associated Press on Monday. "We just werent able to come up with a solution that worked for both parties, so you reset it and start again." Brandon said the team maintains "great communication" with Byrd and his agent, Eugene Parker, and said there are no lingering hard feelings from talks last year. "We all are hoping to get a deal done," Brandon said. "And were going to do the exact same thing this time, work our tails off to try to get another one done." Byrd is the Bills most high-profile player not under contract this off-season. He spent last year playing under a $6.9 million franchise tag after the sides were unable to reach a long-term deal by a mid-July deadline. The stalemate in talks led to Byrd waiting until the final day of training camp to accept the contract. He then missed the first five games of the season because of plantar fasciitis. Despite the missed tiime, the fifth-year player was selected to his third Pro Bowl after he tied for the team lead with four interceptions, and added a sack and a forced fumble.dddddddddddd General manager Doug Whaley said the Bills are in the midst of putting together contract offers to pending free agents, including Byrd. Whaley wouldnt rule out using the franchise tag one last time on Byrd in order to retain his rights. The price of this years tag would jump to over $8 million for Buffalo. Byrd did not return after hurting his back in the first quarter of the Pro Bowl on Sunday. Byrd posted a message on his Twitter account that hes OK. Whaley had no update on the injury. He said Byrd was expected to return to the teams headquarters for evaluation. Brandon provided an update on another front. Without going into detail, he said hes had discussions with Rogers Communications regarding the teams concerns about its annual "Bills In Toronto" series. Brandon questioned the benefits of the series following a 34-31 overtime loss to Atlanta at Toronto on Dec. 1. He wondered about the Bills possibly giving away a home-field edge by playing indoors. Brandon has not ruled out the possibility of the Bills pulling out of the remaining four years of the series.
