One of the women who has alleged sexual and racial workplace misconduct against Carolina Panthers owner Jerry Richardson has spoken out after comments by Houston Texans owner Bob McNair at the NFL owners meetings last month.
Sports Illustrated on Thursday published letters by the woman addressing McNair, the NFL, Panthers coach Ron Rivera, Richardson and the next owner of the Panthers. In the letters, she writes about how much she has been hurt by the misconduct and everything that has occurred since SI reported Dec. 17 that three former Panthers employees and one former scout alleged Richardson paid them off in exchange for their silence on the misconduct.
“Every organization’s different,” Pace said. “Every organization comes to different assessments [when it comes to the medicals].”
The Bears attempted to offset Meredith’s loss by aggressively targeting wide receivers Allen Robinson — coming off a torn ACL — and Taylor Gabriel in free agency. The Bears also added pass-catching tight end Trey Burton, who will play a much larger role in Chicago’s offense than he did in Philadelphia.
“I attacked this thing every day, and I did what I needed to do to get to this point, so I had no doubt when I first touched the field that it was where I wanted to be at.”
Cook had reconstructive surgery on Oct. 9. The first two weeks were the toughest part, with Sugarman pushing hard on his knee in the early struggle to regain that critical range of motion in the joint.
“I got a step on him. Felt like I even got grabbed on the way to the rim,” said Oladipo, who finished with 12 points and 12 rebounds. “I tried to shoot a layup, it hit the backboard, then he blocked it. … It was a goaltend. It’s hard to even speak on it. It just sucks, honestly. It really sucks. We fought our way back, we tied the game up, that layup is huge.”
James, who had 44 points and finished two assists shy of a triple-double, smiled when asked about the play.
“I definitely thought it was a goaltend,” James said with a laugh. “Of course I didn’t think it was a goaltend. I try to make plays like that all the time, and I mean he made a heck of a move, got me leaning right and he went left and I just tried to use my recovery speed and get back up there and make a play on the ball. And I was able to make a play.”
The play was never reviewed, as a referee’s whistle is required in order to trigger a review.
