The Jets added depth and experience Tuesday, agreeing to contract terms with center Travis Swanson, a former Lions third-round draft pick out of Arkansas, according to NFL Network. The Jets also added to their tight end stable by signing Bucky Hodges, a 2017 sixth-round pick of the Vikings.
He started 11 games last season before a concussion in late December forced him to finish the season on injured reserve.
Balance Kapler’s clubhouse- and dugout-centric world view with an intellectual curiosity that consumes him, and you’ll find a complicated figure at the crossroads of two contradictory and often contentious worlds. Kapler is reluctant to use the word “mantra” because it has a new-age tinge that perpetuates a stereotype he’s trying to shake. But a quote from author Malcolm Gladwell summarizes his fondness for respectful debate and divergent viewpoints among the people in his circle.
“That’s your responsibility as a person — as a human being — to constantly be updating your positions on as many things as possible,” Gladwell said. “And if you don’t contradict yourself on a regular basis, then you’re not thinking.”
According to the newspaper, Francois told police the marijuana belonged to his girlfriend and that the last time he used marijuana was in December 2017.
Francois is expected to be the Seminoles’ starter next season. Florida State coach Willie Taggart told the newspaper that he had met with Francois following the incident.
“He’s still with our football team,” Taggart said Saturday. “We talked about his responsibility as a student-athlete here, and he understands my expectations and what I’m looking for, especially when it comes to our quarterback.”
The newspaper reported that the Tallahassee Police Department received a tip from someone at a drug crime scene that he had seen a grocery bag full of marijuana at Francois’ apartment.
The police collected Francois’ garbage four times between the end of February and the beginning of April. Based on what police found in the garbage, they obtained a search warrant and conducted the raid on Thursday.
