Here are notes from around the rest of the NFL:T.O. could face jail time
Terrell Owens still thinks he can play in the NFL
, but he could have much bigger issues to deal with first.
According to WSBTV.com
, Owens is $20,000 behind on child support payments and may be facing jail time. The Atlanta TV station reports that he did not show up to his child support hearing on Thursday in Fulton County.
Jail time becomes a possibility if Owens does not show up to the hearing's reset on July 19.Warner on Kolb's progress
When Kevin Kolb arrived in Arizona, the Cardinals hoped he could lead the offense the way Kurt Warner did during his magical three-year run.
Of course, it didn't work out as planned during Kolb's first season.
But Warner, now an NFL Network analyst, said the organization still believes in the 27-year-old. “I think this is going to play out with Kevin Kolb becoming the starter for the Arizona Cardinals,” Warner said on NFL Network
The main problem Kolb faced, Warner explained, was in learning the Arizona offense, which differs greatly from the Eagles'.
“Although John Skelton played well, especially down the stretch in games, I don’t think he offers them the consistency that Kevin Kolb can — if he learns that offense,” Warner said.Peterson hearing set for Aug. 6
HOUSTON -- Prosecutors have agreed to reset Adrian Peterson's court date to Aug. 6 on a misdemeanor charge stemming from an incident at a Houston nightclub.
The Minnesota Vikings star running back was charged with resisting arrest early Saturday. He was handcuffed and briefly jailed after a confrontation with an off-duty police officer at the club. He was released on a $1,000 bond.
Peterson and attorney Rusty Hardin arrived early for his initial court hearing on Friday, then left before Judge Natalie Fleming even arrived. Hardin says he wants prosecutors to gather more information.
Harris County District Attorney's Office spokesman David Benzion said both sides met before the hearing and agreed on the delay "to ensure that every relevant witness is heard from. All of this is routine." (The Associated Press)
