Former NFL star Clinton Portis has reached an agreement to repay $190,000 he owes a New Jersey casino.

Posted on by

The former running back with the Washington Redskins and Denver Broncos was given $200,000 in credit in 2011 to gamble at the Borgata casino in Atlantic City. But he didn’t have sufficient funds to cover the debt, and six checks he signed to the casino bounced.

Portis retired in 2012 after rushing for just under 10,000 yards and scoring 75 touchdowns between 2002 and 2010.

Under a deal reached last week in Florida bankruptcy court, he will pay the Borgata 10 percent of any income he receives above $30,000 through August 2021.

During court proceedings, lawyers for Portis said he thought he had more than enough to cover the debt. He anticipated $8 million from his NFL contract, but it ended when he was cut from the Redskins a month later.

Portis told Sports Illustrated last June that he contemplated killing one of his financial advisers but was talked out of it by a friend while parked outside his office with a gun.

Several of his advisers were barred from working in the financial services industry but were not convicted of a crime.

Silton did not return a message seeking comment Wednesday, and the Borgata declined to comment.

But when Al Horford is at center, the Celtics don’t have the heft or manic rebounding to hurt smaller Milwaukee groups. Any counter by Brad Stevens to play Aron Baynes and Greg Monroe more is probably a win for Milwaukee. The Bucks should be open to more Giannis-at-center in Game 2.

There is no real counter for Antetokounmpo attacking Horford from the 3-point arc with four shooters around him.

One wrinkle in which Milwaukee’s old (bad) habits showed up: fronting Boston post-ups as if they were urgent threats. Boston’s entry passers digested that and drove right at the front, using it as one giant two-man pick:

On the flip side: yeeeeesh, Eric Bledsoe and Jabari Parker. We will all remember Rozier turning Bledsoe to stone on his shoulda-been game-winning 3, but Bledsoe defended with Phoenix-era sloth the entire game. He smashed into picks and gave up on plays. He lost Rozier for another pivotal triple:

Tim Tebow hit a home run in his first at-bat with a Mets minor league team for the third time, with the outfielder connecting on a three-run shot on the first pitch of his Double-A Rumble Ponies debut Thursday. Tebow homered in his first plate appearance in April of last season with the Single-A Columbia Fireflies, before repeating the heroics in June with High-A St. Lucie.

Jim Schwartz expected to interview with Giants in next week, sources say

Posted on by

The Giants, who are 3-13 and clinched the No. 2 pick in the NFL draft after Sunday’s 18-10 season finale win against the Washington Redskins, fired coach Ben McAdoo after Week 13. New York has since been led by Steve Spagnuolo on an interim basis.

Schwartz is expected to interview with the Giants in the next week, while the Eagles — with an NFC-best record of 13-2 — are on the bye heading into the postseason.

Giants owner John Mara said the team wants to hire an experienced coach, and Schwartz would qualify. He coached the Detroit Lions for five seasons, with his tenure ending in his dismissal after the 2013 season.

This probably won’t be a huge deal, but depending on how that Week 14 matchup between the Vikings and Panthers goes, this won’t be the last we hear about this.

No player history – not even , maybe not plus Martinez – has done the kind of meaningful, historical, painful damage to the Yankees that Ortiz has done singlehandedly.I can help.

I liked his process.Here’s why the switch-hitting World Series champion deserved a better Cooperstown fate–or at least a more thought out and longer look from voters: A quick look at Posada’s offensive numbers give indication that he was one of the top-10 hitting catchers history.Mon, 02 2017 Fantasy Tip: AD be 32 , and it’s probably 50, at best, that he stays Minnesota.It’s not the first time McClendon has been a member of the organization.It’s the beginning of the end for the 2016 World Series champs, who won’t understand until Monday that they — just like everyone else — expiration date.provide more leadership to the team.

If can rebuild its secondary and find edge rusher free agency or the draft, it could be a Super Bowl favorite 2017.But that was aberration for the durable Forte, who has missed just eight eight seasons and left Chicago as the Bears’ second-most productive running back after Hall of Cheap Hockey Jerseys Famer Payton.We didn’t have J.J.Yes, Osweiler, the $72 million man, is basically a taller, richer, dopier version of 2015 Brian Hoyer.Olynyk gave the Celtics their first double-digit lead at 33 when he finished off the quarter with a 3-pointer and a buzzer-beating layup.But we know exactly how to put these bones together?nike_redskins_1949
