NFL is reviewing Bradham situation
We take these situations seriously. Apuestas Deportivas Online Bingo Play Slots Online in US NFL Betting Picks We dont condone these actions, Whaley said in response to Bradham being ticketed Saturday morning for marijuana possession. Its something thats unfortunate, and well deal with it as it comes.
Bradham was stopped at 2:01 a.m. Saturday along Sheridan Drive in the Town of Tonawanda for a window-tint violation, according to the Tonawanda News. The officer who pulled Bradham over detected a strong scent of marijuana, the report stated, and Bradham eventually produced a bag with the banned substance.
He was issued tickets for marijuana possession and illegal tints on his windows.
Whaley said the case is being reviewed by the NFL as a violation of the leagues personal conduct policy.
Its handled at the league level, he said. Its under review as we speak. Well wait for the ruling from the league, and then after that, everything else we will keep in house.
Whaley did not have a timetable on when that review would be complete, saying it could take anywhere from a week to a month.
Bradham has met with coach Doug Marrone and Paul Lancaster, the teams director of player engagement. Following the leagues review, Whaley will sit down with Bradham personally.
Coach has been preaching accountability. And this is an instance hes going to have to step up and be accountable for his actions, Whaley said. Hopefully it shows to the whole team, anything you do, youre going to be held accountable.
The message is, Hey, when youre in this league, its a privilege. Its not a right. You have to respect the shield, youve got to respect the Buffalo Bills, youve got to respect your teammates, the coaches, the whole organization, so when you step outside of this, youre representing not only the NFL, yourself, your family, but youve got to do it with the utmost respect.
Bradham spoke in measured tones about the situation.
Its a legal issue. It was a mistake on my behalf, he said in an afternoon meeting with reporters at St. John Fisher College. I just dont want to be a distraction. Thats the main thing.
Bradham said he regretted his actions.
Oh, yeah, most definitely. Its a bad decision, he said. There will be some kind of conduct, he continued, acknowledging the likelihood of some kind of disciplinary actions, but well keep that between us and the team as far as that.
Bradham, a second-year linebacker out of Florida State, has started the first two preseason games.
Pretty much just trying to stay focused on what we have going on here at training camp, practice and being focused in meetings and everything, Bradham said. Obviously, I had a matter that happened to me. I mean, I have to abide by the rules. I know that.
The Buffalo Bills continued to trim their roster Tuesday with the release of guard Keith Williams.
A 6-foot-5, 330-pounder, Williams was designated as waived/injured by the team.
A former sixth-round draft pick of the Pittsburgh Steelers in 2011, Williams played in two games for the Bills late last season after spending 13 weeks on the practice squad.
His release means the Bills have 81 players on their active roster. They must get that number down to 75 by 4 p.m. Aug. 27.

Rise of the National Football League
The national football league was founded in 1920 on August 20th. The current commissioner Roger Goodell, who was born in 1956, was by surprise selected the commissioner in 2001 after the then commissioner resigned.
It is currently made up of 32 teams from various regions in the US. During its initial days, it was composed of only eleven teams and by then the NFL was called American Professional Football Association until 1922 when the current name was founded. Just like any other emerging group, there was a management problem at the beginning and this made many teams to join and leave the league annually. However, this did not make the management lose hope. Dallas Texans in 1952 was the last team to turn back and most of its members formed another team, the Baltimore Colts.
There was a second chance. The reason why you should smile is that, today the national football league is one of the most stable associations in sports in the whole world. The member teams form what is described in America as major or professional sports leagues. The term was first used in 1921 referring to the most top level professional players. Apart from football, major sports leagues are also identified in hockey, golf, tennis and basketball.
For this reason, other major leagues are National Hockey League or NHL and National Basketball Association, famously known as the NBA, among others. The three leagues are considered the richest and professional clubs that goes for worldwide competitions and are therefore crowned the name cultural icons both in Canada and U.S because they enjoy a bigger place in what is called pop culture. The NFL is however ranked at the top of the three.
The league exists into two major conferences which are: The National Football Conference or NFC, and the other one called American Football Conference or AFC. Each of these conferences has sixteen teams grouped into fours. From research findings in the US, the NFL in relation to other domestic sports in the world is attended to by very many people. On average, the attendance per game was slightly above 67500 in 2009.
The NFL has attempted to partner with other organizations and currently it is in partnership with a number of media in the US including CBS, NBC, NFL network and ESPN. It has also risen to a level that it runs its own website, nfl.com.
In the year 2007 there was some scandal among some of the NFL players' actions away from the field and this saw the emergence of another NFL Personal Conduct Policy which was announced by Goodell. Earlier in 2006 following rumors alleging that the NFL would expand outside the United States, the commissioner, Goodell, replied about it being a reality by saying the possibility was there.
NFL: Giants vs. Jets in New Meadowlands Opener
The first game ever at the new Meadowlands Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey, will feature the two teams that will share the stadium in years to come. Although it is just an exhibition game, you can be sure that both the Giants and Jets want to claim the first “bragging rights” in their new home. According to oddsmakers from Sportsbook.com, the Jets have the better chance of doing that, as they are 2.5-point favorites, with an accompanying total set at 33.
Big things are expected of the Jets and second-year QB Mark Sanchez, as they try to build on last season’s unexpected run to the AFC Championship Game.
The Giants and Eli Manning won the Super Bowl just three years ago, and have shown flashes of being the best team in the sport at times over the last two seasons. But they fell apart in the second half of 2009, losing eight of their final 11 games after starting 5-0.
The Jets will be without CB Darrelle Revis who is in the midst of what could turn out to be an extensive holdout, but newcomers to the Jets in 2010, cornerbacks Antonio Cromartie and Kyle Wilson, have been standouts at camp so far.
Sanchez should only play one or two series, while backups Mark Brunell and Kellen Clemens will see the majority of the action for the Jets. Jim Sorgi and Rhett Bomar should play the majority of the game for the Giants after Eli Manning departs.
These two teams have played every preseason since 1969 with the Jets taking the last three meetings. We expect the streak to continue with the Jets superior talent at backup QB (Brunell and Clemens are both former starters).
StatFox points out that the JETS are 13-3 against the spread versus the GIANTS in the preseason since 1993.
Kickoff is set for 8:00 PM ET and live coverage is brought to you by ESPN’s Monday Night Football crew.
