In a report published by the New York Times on Wednesday, Washington NFL cheerleaders detail the story of a 2013 trip to Costa Rica that many of them say crossed a line.
The team’s group of 36 cheerleaders took a trip to Costa Rica for a calendar photo shoot, but several say they felt objectified and that the team was pimping us out for male sponsors.

A group of suite holders and sponsors were reportedly invited on the trip and given exclusive Womens Travis Sanheim Jersey access to the photo shoot that made the cheerleaders uncomfortable:
According to the report, the cheerleaders felt the extracurricular requirements put them in unsafe situations:
It’s just not right to send cheerleaders out with strange men when some of the girls clearly don’t want to go, one cheerleader who was there said. But unfortunately, I feel like it won’t change until something terrible happens, like a girl is assaulted in some way, or raped. I think teams will start paying attention to this only when it’s too late.
Zach Ertz of the Eagles has had the longest and most productive career, but Jordan Reed of the Redskins is nipping at his heels.
The wild card in the equation is Evan Engram, who had the best season by a rookie tight end in the last 15 years by totaling 64 catches for 722 yards and six touchdowns in the first 15 games of the season for the injury-plagued Giants.
The Cowboys drafted tight end Dalton Schultz of Stanford in the fourth round last weekend after passing on Hayden Hurst in the first round.
The Eagles made a聽 sly move by trading up one pick in front of the Cowboys in the second round to take tight end聽 Dallas Goedert to form a 1-2 punch with Ertz rather than have him fill Witten’s shoes.
No. 21 pick Cedric Ogbuehi, OT, Cincinnati Bengals: The Bengals are a wild card coming down to the deadline. Given Ogbuehi’s massive struggles Marvin Lewis said the offensive tackle held us back (probably literally and figuratively) declining the option would seem the move. However, Cincy did pick up Darqueze Dennard’s option last year when he hadn’t proven anything yet. Could Lewis & Co. make a similar bet with their problematic offensive tackle?
