Colin Kaepernick's agent not optimistic an NFL team will sign the QB

  Colin Kaepernick's agent not optimistic an NFL team will sign the QB Though Kaepernick got some positive reviews following his workout, even the QB's agent is not optimistic that will lead to Kap finding an NFL team.The waiver issue sparked a great deal of debate, with prominent writers like Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk suggesting that the NFL was trying to back Kaepernick into a corner by making him sign a non-standard waiver that would have had him release any employment-related claims that might have arisen after the two sides settled Kaepernick’s collusion case in February.

  ‘I’m alone, I’m old, but guess what I’m tough’: 82-year-old female bodybuilder beats up man who broke into her home © Provided by Independent Digital News & Media Limited

An 82-year-old bodybuilder said an intruder “picked the wrong house to break into” after she beat him up using a table, broom and bottle of baby shampoo.

Willie Murphy was home alone getting ready for bed on Thursday night when a man began banging on her door asking for someone to call an ambulance.

She refused to let him inside and instead called the police, but the man allegedly broke through the door to her home in Rochester, New York.

The award-winning bodybuilder said she was able to hide in the partial darkness as she looked for something to defend herself with, eventually grabbing a nearby table.

Monte Solberg: Quebec is as much an oil state as Alberta — they just let others produce it

  Monte Solberg: Quebec is as much an oil state as Alberta — they just let others produce it By Monte Solberg Take my hand, will you, and I will lead you through the wardrobe to a magical place, where the only energy is clean energy, where Tesla-driving Quebecers signal as they change lanes, and the only emissions are of a private nature. Now, as we walk through a pristine old-growth forest we come upon a great eminence, a splendid figure who picks absent-mindedly at a glorious cape made entirely of recycled plastic straws. What is this place and who is this extraordinary man? It is Imaginary Quebec of course, home to Yves-François Blanchet, leader of the Bloc Québécois. Here, he speaks for all of Quebec.

Recounting her story in front of friends at the YMCA, where she works out most days, Ms Murphy told local station WHAM-TV: “I’m alone and I’m old, but guess what? I’m tough.

“He picked the wrong house to break into; I took that table and I went to working on him.”

Ms Murphy said the table eventually broke so she began jabbing the man with its metal legs instead.

“When he’s down, I’m jumping on him – and the telephone is still on for 911,” she said.

“I’m running in the kitchen, there’s a bottle of baby shampoo on the table. I grab the shampoo and guess what? He’s still on the ground. In his face, the whole thing.

“He’s trying to get up and I’ve got the broom and he’s pulling the broom and I’m hitting him with the broom.”

She added: “He wants to get the heck out of there and I’m trying to help him get out of the house but he’s too heavy, I can’t move him. He’s dead weight.”

Report: No teams express interest in Kaepernick since workout

  Report: No teams express interest in Kaepernick since workout The approach from teams has been no different in the wake of Colin Kaepernick’s workout than it has been over the past three years, according to Schefter.There are apparently talent evaluators out there who believe Kaepernick is good enough to be on an NFL roster, but the issue is likely that teams still don’t feel he could provide enough on the field to justify all the media attention and potential distractions he would attract. Kaepernick is now 32 and has been out of football for nearly three full seasons, and teams have opted against signing him, even with a ton of injuries at the position this season.

At that point, police officers arrived and detained the man, who had to be taken to hospital.

“I really did a number on that man,” said Ms Murphy. “I think he was happy when he went in the ambulance, because I sent him in the ambulance.”

According to ABC’s Wham-TV, Ms Murphy, who is about five feet tall and can deadlift 225 pounds, does not intend to press charges against the intruder.
