Close Friends Brees and Rivers Get to Share Practice Field
08/15/2019 9:26pm

Philip Rivers and Drew Brees have not been teammates since 2005 but the bond between the two still remains strong.The quarterbacks are sharing a field as the Los Angeles Chargers host the New Orleans Saints for practices for the third straight year. The two teams will work out again Friday before their second preseason game Sunday.Its always fun to see Drew. We were telling stories out there from 15 years ago. Its amazing how time flies, Rivers said. Not only is he a friend and a guy you shared a QB room with, hes the all-time leading passer. It is pretty special.Brees was drafted in the second round by the Chargers in 2001 before Rivers was taken in the first round three years later. Brees helped mentor Rivers before signing with New Orleans in 2006.Since then, Rivers has gone on to start every game for the Chargers and Brees led the Saints to a championship in 2009. The two have remained close friends.Besides getting their usual work in team and 7-on-7 drills, the two QB groups also go up against each other in a series of quarterback challenges. The Chargers got to pick Thursdays event, which was called County Fair as both teams had to hit stationary and moving targets. The Saints will come up with Fridays challenge.The Saints won last years challenge while the Chargers were victorious in 2017, meaning this year is a grudge match.Since both teams get in situational work over the two days, Brees and Rivers will not play Sunday. Brees said the practices are more valuable than the game because of the amount of work he is able to get in.You dont always encounter every situation in a preseason game, but out here youre able to script play-action periods and pressure periods, third down, red zone, two-minute. Everything that would happen throughout the course of a normal game in the regular season, he said.Coaches love the workouts more than players because it is scripted. Saints coach Sean Payton said the format of practices with the Chargers all three years has remained consistent.The players are different but generally what weve tried to accomplish on day one and two have been similar, he said.The final hour of Thursdays practice dealt with two-minute and red zone situations along with some special teams work.Chargers coach Anthony Lynn noted that joint workouts have been going on for a while but the attention they are receiving has grown.I like getting the starters a lot of reps in these scrimmages because its a controlled environment. I think you do see a lot more teams doing this, he said. We did this back when I was playing, back in the early 1990s, so its been around for a while. I like the way our players are handling the situation.Both teams rested their top receiver. Los Angeles Keenan Allen was sore, according to Lynn.New Orleans Michael Thomas got a veterans day off. That allowed Saints wideout Simmie Cobbs Jr. and the Chargers Travis Benjamin to haul in some passes on deep routes during 11-on-11 drills.Theres not a great deal of preparation that goes into these practices, Rivers said. There are different fronts and movements that you have to react against. It is a great tape to teach off of because it is not so much finding a way to beat the Saints in practice. Theres no real consequence today which is the best part.Photo Credit: AP

Watch: Cops Stop Yankees GM at Gunpoint in Apparent Mix-Up
08/15/2019 6:17am

Body-camera footage released Wednesday by Connecticut police show New York Yankees General Manager Brian Cashman getting stopped by cops at gunpoint in an apparent mix-up involving his own stolen vehicle and a separate report of an armed man at a doctors office.The confrontation came after police responding to a report of a man with a gun who had been seen driving a white Jeep spotted Cashmans vehicle which incorrectly was still listed as stolen despite having been recovered by New York police days earlier.Cashman was stopped at a Shell gas station in Darien when he was surrounded by police.Driver turn off your car and put your hands up Put your hands out the window, a Darien police officer is heard yelling on the video, which captures the cop with his gun pointed in Cashmans direction.The footage shows Cashman -- in a dark T-shirt, white shorts and flip-flops -- exiting his vehicle with his hands in the air. He subsequently makes his way, backwards, following command, toward the officers.He explains that he reported the vehicle stolen earlier in the week and the NYPD recovered it and returned it to him.Cashman is allowed to go back to his vehicle to retrieve his identification, at which point the officer tells him, You look very familiar to me.Im the GM with the New York Yankees, Cashman replies.Yeah, I know, I used to see you as Brook Street Bagels when I was an Eastchester cop, the officer says, adding, I apologize for the embarrassment.An apparent officer at the scene explained to Cashman that they were responding to an unrelated report of a man who brought a gun at a doctors office and had reportedly left in a white, Jeep-like vehicle. Then they ran the plates on Cashmans Jeep and found that it had been reported stolen.What a day, Cashman could be heard as he wiped his forehead while awaiting next to his vehicle and surrounded by police.The Yankees general manager said he reported the vehicle stolen earlier last week from nearby but the NYPD had recovered the vehicle in the Bronx and returned it to him.Its not clear why his vehicle was not taken off the stolen list.He was fully cooperative with all commands and instructions given by the officers conducting the stop and the encounter was quickly, efficiently and properly deescalated, police said in a previous a statement.They executed a very tactful interception, Cashman told the NY Post.Theyre clearly very professional and trained and they asked me to turn my car off, exit the vehicle, walk backwards towards themthey were executing their duty.Officers escorted him to the Norwalk police station, where he was initially driving to in order to have his car processed for evidence because he found items inside that he believed belonged to whomever stole his car.Police said they later found the patient who had brought a gun to the doctors office. He had a valid license and wasnt aware he had caused any alarm.
