Report: Panthers interested in free-agent QB Teddy Bridgewater

  Report: Panthers interested in free-agent QB Teddy Bridgewater This makes some sense in that the 27-year-old Bridgewater played in a similar system that Rhule runs dating back to his days with Louisville. He also spent a year in New Orleans with new Panthers offensive coordinator Joe Brady. A first-round pick of the Vikings back in 2014, Bridgewater saw his career almost derailed after suffering a serious injury back in 2016. He responded by winning all five of his starts in Drew Brees’ stead with the New Orleans Saints last season.Bridgewater is expected to earn somewhere around $30 million annually in free agency.

Following a similar path taken by the Federal Reserve earlier this week, the European Central Bank removed previous limits on its bond-buying program and signaled that it would focus its financial support on Italy and other E.U FBI chief pledges to find answers on ex - agent Levinson .

WASHINGTON (AP) — The FBI won't give up on “finding out what happened" to former agent Robert Levinson, who the U.S. government believes died in the custody of the Iranians, according to an email FBI Director Chris Wray sent to the FBI workforce on Thursday.

The email, obtained by The Associated Press, was sent a day after Levinson's family revealed that the U.S. government had concluded that Levinson was dead. U.S. officials have not specified the nature or circumstances of Levinson's death, except to say they believe it happened some time ago.

  When nothing else matters: Coronavirus fuels a thirst for answers, an effort to spin blame In the blink of an eye, the coronavirus has overwhelmed Washington, putting President Trump on high alert and sparking angry exchanges over blame.In the blink of an eye, the coronavirus pandemic has overwhelmed everything in Washington as it has everyplace else – propelling Congress toward the biggest economic rescue package in history, putting President Donald Trump on a defensive high alert, sidelining the 2020 campaign, disrupting nearly every American's life.

U.S. government officials have concluded that Robert Levinson has died while in the custody of Iran, his family have said. President Trump said he has not determined if that is true.

Former FBI agent Robert Levinson 's family has said that he died in Iranian custody. Levinson went missing in 2007. US President Donald Trump did not confirm Levinson 's death. He said that he had not received any word from Iran about the agent 's death.

Wray writes in the email that he himself met with the Levinson family and “explained that the most credible evidence we have collected over the past 13 years points to the likelihood that Bob died in captivity."

“It pained me to deliver that news, but I believe that we owed Bob’s family a thorough and candid presentation of the information that we’ve collected," Wray wrote.

The email comes as Trump administration officials are calling on Iran to provide a more complete accounting of Levinson's abduction and his time in captivity.

Levinson disappeared March 9, 2007, when he was scheduled to meet a source on the Iranian island of Kish. For years, U.S. officials would say only that Levinson was working independently on a private investigation. But a 2013 Associated Press investigation revealed that Levinson had been sent on a mission by CIA analysts who had no authority to run such an operation.
