In the final night of NFL Preseason games…………..
Elvis Dumervil, who recorded 105.5 sacks during his NFL career, has decided to “step away” from the NFL to focus on his family and a business venture, he announced Thursday on Twitter. Dumervil was selected in the fourth round of the 2006 draft by the Denver Broncos, with whom he spent seven years; he missed the 2010 season because of a torn pectoral. He also played four seasons with the Baltimore Ravens before joining the San Francisco 49ers in 2017. The defensive end was a five-time Pro Bowler, a two-time All-Pro selection and led the NFL with 17 sacks for Denver in 2009. Dumervil set the Ravens’ single-season sacks record with 17 in 2014 and ranks 26th on the NFL’s all-time sacks list.
Two-time All-Star David West, who won two NBA championships with the Golden State Warriors during an NBA career that lasted 15 seasons, announced his decision to retire Thursday on social media. The 38-year-old West was part of the Warriors’ title-winning teams the past two seasons. He also played for the New Orleans Hornets, Indiana Pacers, and San Antonio Spurs during his career, averaging 13.6 points and 6.4 rebounds.
An arbitrator is sending Colin Kaepernick’s grievance with the NFL to trial, denying the league’s request to throw out the quarterback’s claims that owners conspired to keep him out of the league because of his protests of social injustice. Kaepernick’s lawyer Mark Geragos tweeted a picture Thursday of a ruling by arbitrator Stephen B. Burbank. The NFL declined a request for comment. Kaepernick, who led the San Francisco 49ers to a Super Bowl appearance and NFC championship game in consecutive seasons, argues that owners have colluded to keep him off any NFL roster since he hit free agency in 2017.
