On the whole, the sports world has been incredibly classy and tasteful in its assorted tributes to the victims of the tragedy in Newtown, Conn. Adding his own personal memorial tonight on Monday Night Football was Titans running back Chris Johnson, who wrote the name of each victim on his cleats.
Your tweets of the morning are quite the potluck on this Friday, October 12: Playoff baseball, Thursday Night Football, perplexing dates and vice presidential debates. Read on and be sure to like us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter.
Chris Johnson, who has seen his stock fall a little on fantasy draft boards because he was (rightfully) holding out for more money from the Titans, has gotten a new contract. The Tennessee running back has just signed a four-year, $53 million extension with $30 million guaranteed, ensuring he’ll have a nice little nest egg despite the relatively short lifespan of an NFL running back’s career. Take him behind Adrian Peterson, but ahead of Arian Foster, folks.
The Titans’ Kenny Britt has probably shown up on your fantasy football radar lately, notching a touchdown catch in each of his last three games. Unfortunately, it looks like his off the field behavior may keep him…off the field.
