Nov 19, 2019 12:05 PM

Mark Walton has been released by the Miami Dolphins after they were made aware of a police matter involving him.

Walton has been charged with aggravated battery of a pregnant woman. Walton is accused of pushing her into a wall and punching her several times in her face and head. The woman is five weeks pregnant and Walton is the father.

Walton was through two games of a four-game league suspension for violating the NFL conduct and substance abuse policy relating to his three offseason arrests between January and March. He was released by the Cincinnati Bengals after these incidents, and the Dolphins gave him another chance, signing him in May.

Texans Claim Vernon Hargreaves Off Waivers

Nov 14, 2019 10:08 AM

The Houston Texans have claimed Vernon Hargreaves off waivers from the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

The Buccaneers let the cornerback go on Tuesday after he was benched last weekend for what Bruce Arians deemed a lack of hustle.

The Texans acquired Gareon Conley from the Oakland Raiders on Oct. 21 in exchange for a third-round pick. Conley was selected in the first round of the 2017 draft; Hargreaves was a first-round pick in 2016.

Buccaneers Release Vernon Hargreaves After Not Hustling

Nov 12, 2019 11:07 AM

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have released Vernon Hargreaves two days after the starting cornerback was benched for a lack of hustle by Bruce Arians.

"After thoughtful consideration over the past few weeks, Bruce and I came to the conclusion that we needed to make this change," Buccaneers general manager Jason Licht said in a statement. "Decisions such as this are always difficult, but I felt it was in the best interest of our team to part ways with Vernon at this time and allow him to explore other opportunities. We are disappointed that it did not work out here for Vernon and we wish him continued success moving forward."

Hargreaves was the 11th overall pick in 2016. Tampa Bay picked up their fifth-year option for 2020 on Hargreaves worth $9 million. The contract was only guaranteed for injury.

"He didn't look like he was hustling to go in for a tackle," Arians said when asked about Hargreaves, who surrendered a 55-yard catch to Andy Isabella at the beginning of the third quarter against the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday. "He was chasing somebody across the field and he wasn't running fast enough."

Intimidating Texts Led Patriots To Release Antonio Brown

Sep 22, 2019 11:43 AM

The New England Patriots decided to release Antonio Brown following the report he sent intimated group text messages to an artist who accused him on unwanted sexual advances.

"That crossed the line," one source familiar with the organization's thinking told ESPN. "This was real evidence."

The Patriots are expected to withhold the $9 million signing bonus they agreed to pay Brown when he signed.

Among other factors, New England will lean on the "representation and warranty" clause in Brown's contract that specifically states: "Player represent warrants and covenance to the club that he will 1) execute in good faith and to the best of his ability all of his obligations to and for the club; 2) he does not and will not participate and is not engaged or will not engage in any conduct or activity that is illegal, unlawful or immoral. And 3) No circumstances exist that would prevent players continuing availability to the club for the duration of the contract."

Some NFL sources strongly believe the Patriots will eventually owe Brown $9 million.
