Did Julian Edelman help stop a school shooting?
The Patriots receiver got a direct message on his Instagram account last month that said someone in the comment section of Edelman’s account was threatening to shoot up a school, The New York Times reported.
A 14-year-old boy living at that address admitted he posted the comment and was taken to a juvenile detention center. When police searched the house, they discovered two rifles belonging to the boy’s mother. The boy has been charged with a felony count of making a false threat of terrorism.
Moen told the Times she updated Edelman on the police’s findings and both realized they might have helped avert a deadly situation.
“When I told Julian, he was in shock,” Moen said. “We’re very lucky the Boston cops were all over it, very lucky the Michigan cops were all over it.”
The Chargers went with a more specific proposal asking that roughing-the-passer penalties and hits on defenseless receivers be made reviewable. The Redskins were less specific, but they want to make personal fouls reviewable in general.
Here is the full list of playing rules proposals owners will discuss.
Spangenberg, with his back to the wall, played the ball well and timed his jump perfectly. He was dumbfounded when he came back down to the ground and realized the ball wasn’t in his glove.
“I felt it go in my glove and as I was bringing it back I felt something un-lodge it,” he said. “I went to throw it back in and I realized it wasn’t there. … From my perspective, I thought I saw and felt a hand touch the ball but I guess that’s not what they saw. It was a big home run at the time but we were able to escape with a win and that’s that counts.”
