Christen Harper remembers exactly what she was doing when fiancé Jared Goff and the Lions won their first game last season. Unfortunately, online trolls did, too. During a recent appearance on the “Courtside Club” podcast with Rachel DeMita, the model reflected on what should have been a special moment last December, when she was shooting for Sports Illustrated Swimsuit and received word that Goff’s Lions had sealed a 29-27 victory over the Vikings on the quarterback’s last-second touchdown pass. “When I was shooting Sports Illustrated this last year, I was in Barbados, and there was this video of me that went viral....

Davontae Sanford, Who Was Exonerated Of 4 Killings, Offers Free Gas In Detroit

DETROIT (AP) — Drivers lined up early Tuesday to get free gas in Detroit from a man who spent eight years in prison before he was cleared of four killings. Davontae Sanford limited the $25,000 offer to women and older men. “The city had my back, so it’s only right I give back to the city and I give back to the most vulnerable,” Sanford told WJBK-TV. The Detroit City Council in March agreed to pay $7.5 million to settle Sanford’s claim that police had violated his rights. Sanford was 15 when he pleaded guilty to second-degree murder in the fatal shootings of four people in 2007. He later insisted he was innocent and took a plea deal only because he felt helpless and poorly represented by a lawyer. The case took a strange turn when a hit man, Vincent Smothers, stepped forward and said he was responsible for the killings, not Sanford. In 2016, the convictions were dropped at the request of Wayne County prosecutor Kym Worthy, who cited police misconduct, not Smothers’ confession. Smothers has never been charged in the Runyon Street homicides. He is prison for eight other killings. © 2022 Associated Press. All Rights Reserved.

Detroit Lions release first unofficial depth chart of the 2022 season

The Detroit Lions released their first unofficial depth chart of the 2022 season. While this can feel like a significant moment in the offseason, there are two things to keep in mind: first, the roster is very much in flux this time of the year, and second, this depth chart is developed by the Lions’ communications department, not the coaching staff or front office.
