The former Cowboys fullback and the new G.M. of the San Antonio edition of the Alliance of American Football will continue to call NFL games, according to a FOX spokesperson.
The AAF announced on Thursday the hiring of Johnston and coach Mike Riley. With the inaugural season starting the Sunday after Super Bowl LIII, Johnston surely will be spending plenty of time putting the team’s roster together while also handling weekly games on FOX.
It’s was for both sides to justify the move. The NFL, in lieu of suspending him the baseline of six games (plus a possible enhancement for his pre-NFL alleged misbehavior), offers half instead. Winston doesn’t launch an appeal that, while ultimately futile, possibly would expose yet another Park Avenue Keystone Cops investigation and/or kangaroo court process.
Banks’ attorney, Mark Scruggs, told ESPN that Banks was with Winston and Darby in a different Uber earlier in the evening, but that Winston went into the car alone with the driver who accused him of grabbing her crotch later in the night. Darby claimed the three of them were all in the Uber together and Winston was never alone with the woman. Scruggs said Banks doesn’t know what happened between Winston and the driver because Winston and the driver were the only people in the car.
What happened after that, they cannot say, Scruggs said of Banks and Darby.
The Uber incident took place in March of 2016, after Banks had been accused of Cheap Jerseys Direct raping a woman in a Vanderbilt dorm room but before he had gone on trial. Banks would later be convicted Cheap Jerseys China and sentenced to 15 years in prison. Winston himself was accused of raping a woman when he played at Florida State, and Winston’s decision to associate with another man who was awaiting trial on a rape charge will fuel questions about Winston’s judgment.
