The Colts not only are avoiding free agents in 2018 but also are dumping free agents from 2017.
The team has announced that defensive tackle Johnathan Hankins has been released. The timing is no accident; $4.5 million of his $8 million salary for 2018 was due to become fully guaranteed as of Sunday.
Dowd said in a Saturday morning statement, “I pray that Acting Attorney General Rosenstein will follow the brilliant and courageous example of the FBI Office of Professional Responsibility and Attorney General Jeff Sessions and bring an end to alleged Russia Collusion investigation manufactured by McCabe’s boss James Comey based upon a fraudulent and corrupt Dossier.”
Dowd’s defiance was a dramatic shift for a legal team that had long pledged to cooperate fully with Mueller. The White House has responded to requests for documents, and senior officials have sat for hours of interviews with the special counsel’s investigators.
Suriano, a Paramus native and four-time undefeated state champion at Bergen Catholic High, was bidding to become Rutgers’ first individual NCAA champion since fencer Alexis Jemal won the national sabre title in 2003.
Suriano concludes his first season at Rutgers with a 25-1 record after a serious ankle injury while at Penn State last year prevented him from competing at nationals. Suriano then opted to leave the Nittany Lions and transfer home. Suriano was able to secure immediate eligibility at Rutgers and compete this season due to a Big Ten waiver after a complicated and contentious process.
More adversity then struck Suriano over the final month of this regular season when he missed four dual meets due to illness and a later-revealed lower body injury. He returned for the Big Ten Championships and won his quarterfinal round bout to secure an automatic qualifier spot for the national tournament, but then medical forfeited his semifinal round bout, ultimately finishing sixth, after re-aggravating the injury.
