The Baltimore Ravens had a real tough decision to make with its starting tight end Dennis Pitta. The two sides eventually agreed on a restructured contract that would lower Pitta's cap figure for 2017 and keep him on the team for now. This could also mean the end for tight end Ben Watson, but as it stands, he is still on the roster as well.
The star prosecution witness in the double murder trial of former New England Patriots star Aaron Hernandez on Wednesday underwent a grueling cross-examination in Suffolk Superior Court. Alexander Bradley, who has provided critical testimony in the case against Hernandez, 27, engaged in tense exchanges with defense attorney Jose Baez, repeatedly him as “Mr. Baez” in a sneering tone as he answered his questions. It was Bradley’s second day of cross examination since first taking the stand Monday. Bradley is the only eyewitness to identify Hernandez as the person who fatally shot Daniel de Abreu and Safiro Furtado in the early morning hours of July 16, 2012 in Boston’s South End.
