The Jaguars announced the signing of first-year receiver DeAndre Smelter. To make room on the roster, the team waived defensive tackle Michael Hughes with an injury designation.
Smelter has appeared in two career games, both with the 49ers in 2016. He caught one pass for 23 yards.
Last season, he spent time on the 49ers’ practice squad.
I consider myself a revolutionary socialist, the 26-year-old Rapone told the Associated Press in a series of interviews. I would encourage all soldiers who have a conscience to lay down their arms and join me and so many others who are willing to stop serving the agents of imperialism and join us in a revolutionary movement.
Rapone said his journey to communism grew out of his experiences as an Army Ranger in Afghanistan before he was accepted into the US Military Academy. And those views only hardened during his studies of history as one of the academy’s Long Gray Line.
The Cowboys have insisted Elliott has learned his lesson and expect him to stay out of trouble. Owner Jerry Jones reiterated that Saturday night, saying the running back has a new sense of awareness, Clarence Hill of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.
Jones said he trusts the running back as much as he trusts himself.
He added, though, that Elliott still needs a talking to — sometimes daily — to remain on the straight and narrow. But the Cowboys have no concerns about Elliott between now and training camp.
In less than a year, Elliott has gone from sometimes being a migraine for the Cowboys to being a team leader, who has preached to his teammates the importance of working the next five weeks.
It’s why many in the organization are predicting a big year for Elliott.
We feel really good and really confident with where we’re at, Reich said.
