    Report: Michael Bennett heading to New England

    Posted by Darin Gantt on March 8, 2019, 3:17 PM EST

    The Patriots didn’t tag Trey Flowers, sending their top pass-rusher into the open market. They didn’t wait to replace him.

    According to Jeff McLane of the Philadelphia Inquirer, the Eagles are trading veteran defensive end Michael Bennett to the Patriots, with draft pick compensation being worked out.

    Bennett was looking for a raise, and the Patriots are seldom in a hurry to pass those out. What’s not in doubt is Bennett’s versatility and ability to get to quarterbacks. He had nine sacks last year for the Eagles, rushing from inside and out.

    His brother Martellus picked up a Super Bowl ring with the Patriots in 2016, and now Michael has a chance to match his brother.

    Steeler teams featuring stat-driven, me-first, fantasy-football-darling diva types such as Antonio Brown & Le'Veon Bell won no championships.

    Super Bowl winning Steeler teams were built around a dynamic, in-your-face defense plus blue-collar, hard-hitting, no-nonsense football players on offense such as Hines Ward & Jerome Bettis.

    We don't want Juju & Conner to replace what we lost in Brown & Bell.

    We are counting on Juju & Conner to return us to the glory we once had with Hines & The Bus.

    Robert Kraft receives conditional offer to drop Florida charges

    Posted by Mike Florio on March 19, 2019, 1:47 PM EDT

    Patriots owner Robert Kraft could have solicitation of prostitution charges against him dropped, with one key condition: He needs to admit that, if the charges hadnít been dropped, prosecution would have resulted in a conviction.

    Thatís the latest report from Andrew Beaton of the Wall Street Journal regarding Kraftís Palm Beach County legal entanglement. The criminal charges will go away if Kraft makes that admission, if he completes an education course about prostitution, if he performs 100 hours of community service, if heís screened for STDs, and if he pays some of the court costs.

    Itís unclear whether Kraft will accept the offer, and itís unclear whether the agreement (if accepted) would result in a violation of the NFLís Personal Conduct Policy. Itís possible if not likely that admitting hypothetical guilt under undisputed facts would result in a finding by the Commissioner that punishment is required under the Personal Conduct Policy.

    Questions have emerged regarding the viability of the prosecution, including whether the evidence shows actual solicitation of sex in exchange for money. Although the broader investigation was sparked by concerns regarding human trafficking, court documents show that Kraft interacted with a 45-year-old manager of the spa and a 58-year-old spa employee, both of whom are Florida residents.

    It will be interesting to see what happens if Kraft declines the offer, essentially telling the prosecutors that if they believe they can prove guilty beyond a reasonable doubt in court, they should go ahead and try. Indeed, if prosecutors were so confident of a victory, why would they offer this kind of a deal?

    I know folks just want to win but do we really want to win like the Pats?

    Some will but something is off about this franchise

    Always something weird and always something down right awful.

    Murder
    Child prostitution
    SB MVP used PED’s the same year
    Billicheat cheating on his wife and bringing her to the SB

    Brady leaving his baby momma

    Brady’s security shooting out car windows at the wedding in Brazil.

    Putin stealing a SB ring.

    Seriously. This is the most awful successful franchise in sports.

    Won’t even get into the blatant cheating and weird calls during games but whatever.

    Reports on Foxnews were that he was caught, on video tape, giving the women and money as well as the services performed.

    Are they trying to do him a favor by just having him to agree to a plea deal so they can make this go away as quickly as possible?
    From the 2010-2018 season, (An 8 year period that the majority of Cowher's players & coaches had left) Mike Tomlin has only won 3 playoff games. And two of those wins were against back up Quarterbacks. Our history has been defined by what we do in the postseason; not the regular season.

    In NY the moronic governor wants to legalize prostitution to increase tax revenue.
    A lonely old rich man got caught getting a happy ending, who cares.
    I wish people would/could leave politics out of a Steelers Football Forum.
