When a football player becomes famous on social media in the offseason, it’s generally not a good thing.
But Cardinals tight end Jermaine Gresham’s an even brighter star than he was previously, for all the right reasons.
The lawsuit, filed in Houston federal court, accuses the franchise of paying the women less than the $7.25 per hour they were promised, not compensating them for making public appearances or performing other tasks related to their jobs and creating a workplace where the women were threatened with being fired for voicing any complaints.
I and my fellow cheerleaders were treated as the lowest of the low, Hannah Turnbow said at a news conference. The Houston Texans were paid thousands of dollars to have us show up at appearances at locations all over Texas with no security, no transportation and where our safety was not guaranteed.
Grant only played 49 offensive snaps in the regular season, but made the most of them by averaging 8.3 yards per carry and 13.7 yards per reception. He also caught three passes for 59 yards in Jacksonville’s playoff loss to New England and offensive coordinator Nathaniel Hackett suggested he’s in line for more action this time around.
I thought Corey — once again, he’s a guy that stepped in [last season] and did a great job there at the end — and he’s just a guy we’ve got to get out there, Hackett said, via First Coast News. There’s all these guys we’re talking about and it’s a long ways away from that first game to see what we’re going to get but I’d love to put him out there because he’s a major change-of-pace back.
T.J. Yeldon is also on hand in Jacksonville so Grant won’t be the only option for a change of pace from Fournette, but his knack for hitting big plays makes it easy to understand why Hackett would be interested to see what happens if the ball’s in his hands more often.
