Eisenhower Drive project: Pandemic delays public hearing until mid- to late summer

  Eisenhower Drive project: Pandemic delays public hearing until mid- to late summer "People are outraged for good reason," Hanover attorney Arthur Becker Jr. said, urging planners to "end this madness."The project has been delayed because of the coronavirus pandemic. Officials currently are wrapping up an environmental assessment document, he said.

The Bengals and A . J . Green have seven days to agree to a long - term contract extension . Cincinnati placed the franchise tag on the seven-time Pro Bowler this The odds of Green and the Bengals agreeing to an extension is unlikely . A new contract was complicated enough, given his injury history.

If the Bengals were to sign Green to an extension it would likely be an incentive-based deal. The organization would want to protect itself, in case Green continues to deal with injuries. “ A . J . Green signing a long - term contract before July 15 will have no bearing on if they take a receiver in the draft.

The Cincinnati Bengals placed the franchise tag on wide receiver A.J. Green in March, and the sides have until July 15 to reach a long-term contract extension. One reporter does not believe such a deal will get done.

ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler reported on Saturday that not only has Green not signed his tender yet, but that a long-term deal is unlikely.

“He has not signed the tag,” Fowler said. “I’ve talked with some sources involved. They don’t know if he’s going to, or if a long-term deal is going to get done. They don’t sound overly optimistic in Cincinnati that their best pass-catcher will be locked up long-term. They expect that he will play this year on the tag.”

Green did not play last season due to an ankle injury and played in only nine games in 2018 after injuring his toe. The 31-year-old would be set to make just under $18 million under the franchise tag.

Even though he did not seem highly motivated to play for the Bengals amid a terrible 2-14 season last year, Green seems more excited about teaming with rookie quarterback Joe Burrow.

Mets place Jed Lowrie, Walker Lockett on Injured List .
Lowrie has not yet contributed to the Mets since signing a two-year deal in the 2018-19 offseason. He has finally made some progress but obviously still isn’t in game shape. As for Lockett, he’s said to be dealing with a lower back ailment. It’s not yet clear just how long he might be sidelined. Lockett has yet to fully establish himself in the majors but had seemed to be lined up for an active roster spot to open the year. He’s out of options, so he will need to be moved onto the active roster or exposed to waivers once he’s healthy.Subscribe to Yardbarker's Morning Bark, the most comprehensive newsletter in sports.
