The Buccaneers aren’t going to spend any more time waiting for J.R. Sweezy to get healthy.
According to Mike Garafolo of the NFL Network, the Bucs are releasing the veteran guard.
Of course, it’s entirely possible (if not probable) that the league cut the suspension in half simply as part of the effort to make a deal with Winston, pursuant to which he wouldn’t file an internal appeal (or external litigation) and he would in turn control the messaging, in an effort to best conceal the details as to what he did and, in turn, to prevent a #MeToo firestorm that could result in the Buccaneers having no choice but to part ways with him.
So where is the letter that the league sent to Winston explaining the basis for the punishment? You know, the multi-page letter outlining everything he did wrong, signed by an NFL executive?
Then, there’s Jaguars defensive tackle Marcell Dareus, who traveled to Haiti on a humanitarian trip for the second consecutive summer.
The Dareus Foundation donated $125,000 to fund a three-classroom building, which Christ-Roi Primary School of Cammy will name after him.
It is one thing to give money to something and hope for the best; it is quite something else to witness your efforts and see the gratitude and thankfulness of not just the children, but the whole community, for doing what you’re doing, Dareus said, via John Reid of the Jacksonville Times-Union. To receive their blessings and hear their words of appreciation directly was something I could have never imagined several years ago. Their gratitude and happiness was overwhelming and showed me that what I am doing is going to have a tremendous impact on their lives.″
