Le’Veon Bell, Jamal Adams spar on Twitter after Adams forces trade from Jets

first_imgBell wasn’t happy with that outcome and took an apparent shot at Adams via Twitter.Bell wrote: “Ppl do all the hootin & hollerin to get you brought in, just to leave…lol like people weird yooo, the internet got these dudes doin whatever for attention, even when they tell you sh*t they don’t believe themselves.”He later added that he was more motivated than mad.ppl do all the hootin & hollerin to get you brought in, just to leave…lol like people weird yooo, the internet got these dudes doin whatever for attention, even when they tell you sh*t they don’t believe themselves— Le’Veon Bell (@LeVeonBell) July 25, 2020Adams saw all that and decided to respond, reminding Bell that the Seahawks are scheduled to host the Jets in mid-December.Noted. See u Week 14! https://t.co/MjPOfiHtGi— Jamal Adams (@Prez) July 26, 2020Bell came back with saying Adams “lied,” although Bell didn’t specify. Still, it’s “allll love” between the two, with Bell adding that he wants the best for his now ex-teammate.“noted” what?! lol that you LIED? PLEASEE TRUST that it IS “noted” then..& if I’m supposed to take “see you in week 14” as a threat…I don’t! but it’s still allll love and like I told you ON THE PHONE I want the best for you..if this is the best for you, I want it for you bro 🙌🏾 https://t.co/yyNGH5XAb3— Le’Veon Bell (@LeVeonBell) July 26, 2020MORE: Best NFL training camp battlesBell, no stranger to drama in his own right, struggled through the worst statistical season of his career in 2019. His yards (789), yards per carry (3.2) and rushing touchdowns (three) were all personal lows. While much of that could be attributed to his offensive line, there is no debating it was a tough first year in New York for the three-time Pro Bowler.Still, Bell is considered a star-level force because of his receiving ability out of the backfield. Even when he isn’t picking up yards on the ground, he remains a productive asset.Adams, meanwhile, was the Jets’ best defensive player. Bell had previously expressed optimism the All-Pro safety wouldn’t leave. Jets running back Le’Veon Bell signed as a free agent with the franchise before last season partly because of the persistent recruiting effort of safety Jamal Adams, who courted him for months to come to MetLife Stadium.But the friendship between the pair might be permanently strained now that Adams has forced his way out. Following months of open hostility toward his own team, Adams was reportedly dealt to the Seahawks on Saturday. “Me, personally, I hope he doesn’t get traded,” Bell said two weeks ago. “But I don’t think he’ll get traded. I do think he’ll be playing with the Jets. That’s just me, personally, because I don’t think he’s going to get traded. Honestly, why would you trade him? I wouldn’t trade him.”In return for Adams and a fourth-round draft pick, New York received safety Bradley McDougald, 2021 and 2022 first-round picks and a 2021 third-round selection, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter. Those might be quality assets for the franchise, but they won’t provide the short-term lift Bell would have wanted as he enters the second half of his career.The Jets went 7-9 last season. They haven’t made the playoffs since 2010.last_img read more

Ohio man accused of trading drugs for sex with children

first_imgPolice arrested an  Ohio man who exchanged drugs for sexual access to children of drug-addicted parents and took sexually explicit photos of the girls to create child pornography, according to an indictment made public this week.69-year-old Larry Dean Porter repeatedly traded drugs for sex with three girls. He had several other adults help him transport the victims to his home. Police say one of the victims was only 7 years old. Porter both raped the girls and filmed himself raping them, U.S. Attorney Dave DeVillers said Wednesday.Occasionally allegations come along that call into question “our confidence in humanity,” DeVillers said. “This is one of those cases.”Numerous sources in Scioto County in southern Ohio told the FBI that Porter “was involved in sexually abusing minors, and that such abuse was occurring with the consent of the minors’ parents who were receiving illegal controlled substances from Porter,” the complaint said.Two of Porter’s adult daughters, are accused of trying to hide evidence by taking key material to a storage unit so investigators wouldn’t find it.The abuse began in 2013 and continued until this year, DeViller said. The investigation is continuing and there are believed to be more victims.Nine people were charged in total.last_img read more
