Josh Doctsons tweet left 136 characters on the table but he didnt need any more to deliver some good news to Redskins fans. The wide receiver was the Redskins top pick in the 2016 draft.

Chicago Bears wide receiver Deonte Thompson has testified in the double-murder trial of ex-NFL star Aaron Hernandez. The former New England Patriots tight end played football with Thompson at the University of Florida. Thompson testified Monday about a Florida party he invited Hernandez to in February 2013. Hernandez smiled when Thompson referred to him as “my guy.” Thompson's team, then the Baltimore Ravens, had just won the Super Bowl. Thompson said he remembers Hernandez introducing Alexander Bradley as “my homie” and said they appeared to be good friends. Prosecutors say Hernandez shot Bradley days later because he feared Bradley would tell authorities he saw Hernandez kill two men in Boston
Earlier this month, as general managers and head coaches from nearly every other NFL team met with reporters at the league scouting combine, the coach of the reigning Super Bowl champions, as is generally his M.O. at the combine, opted not to chat. On Tuesday, as the coaches of the 16 AFC clubs gather for the annual breakfast with reporters as part of the league’s spring meetings, Bill Belichick will once again be absent. On Sunday night, Jeff Howe, the New England Patriots beat reporter for the Boston Herald, tweeted that Belichick has a “scouting conflict” on Tuesday morning and wouldn’t be meeting with media.
