Several NFL teams were hoping to go after Melvin Ingram in free agency.
The Chargers negated that option Monday by applying the franchise tag to their fifth-year pass rusher, the team announced.
While Ingram, a first-round pick of the Chargers in 2012, won’t be hitting the free agent market, he will get paid handsomely in 2017.
The woman, identified as juror 13, told Judge Jeffrey Locke that her only knowledge of Hernandez came from a conversation she overhead co-workers having about Deflategate about a year ago.
That, understandably, made Hernandez and his defense team laugh.
“Deflategate has nothing to do with this case at all,” Locke told her.
The juror said she realized that, but insisted, “That’s what they (her co-workers) were talking about.”
She was dismissed before lunch.
After the break, a juror told Locke that another juror brought up Hernandez’s 2015 conviction for killing Odin Lloyd. Locke instructed the jurors not to discuss any facets of the current case.
Asked by Locke if his judgment would be influenced by the knowledge that Hernandez had been convicted of a separate murder, the man responded, “I would hope not, but I couldn’t say Vancouver Canucks Cheap Jerseys for sure.”
