Friday’s Sports In Brief
Question of the Day
Derek Carr’s guiding light has been older brother David, the top overall pick in the 2002 draft. Jimmy Garoppolo’s favorite player has been Tom Brady, the 199th selection in 2000.
The problem for Carr, taken fourth in the second round by Oakland, is that David was only mediocre as a pro. The issue for Garoppolo, chosen 62nd overall by New England, is, well, can anyone really live up to Brady’s career?
The two were among dozens of picks made Friday as the NFL draft wrapped up Rounds 2 and 3 at Radio City Music Hall. The first day shattered all-time television viewership records and fed a roaring crowd, but the second day was more subdued.
BEREA, Ohio (AP) - A day of celebration dissolved into confusion for the Browns.
Hours after quarterback Johnny Manziel’s arrival had Cleveland’s football pulse racing faster than it had in years, a report that star wide receiver Josh Gordon may be facing an indefinite suspension shattered the city’s collective joy.
One star in, one maybe on his way out.
As the second round of the NFL draft was set to open Friday, ESPN reported that Gordon, who led the NFL in yards receiving last season, had failed another drug test for marijuana and could be banned for a year. The ESPN report, based on anonymous sources, described letters the Pro Bowler received about the failed test.
DAVIE, Fla. (AP) - Miami Dolphins center Mike Pouncey heard from management regarding a tweet he sent that joked about hazing the team’s first-round draft pick.
The jest fell flat in the wake of the Dolphins’ 2013 bullying scandal, in which Pouncey was implicated.
The Dolphins took Tennessee tackle Ja’Wuan James with the 19th overall choice Thursday.
“Great pick! I can’t wait for our gifts he’s getting us lol,” Pouncey tweeted.
WASHINGTON (AP) - A member of Congress is requesting a hearing on the Washington Redskins’ name, calling it “another example of racial insensitivity in sports” in the wake of Donald Sterling’s lifetime ban from the NBA.
