Michael Bennett to Enter Not Guilty Plea If Felony Charge Goes to Trial

Philadelphia Eagles defensive end Michael Bennett’s lawyer said Friday that his client will enter a not guilty plea if his case goes to trial.

Rusty Hardin said the following regarding Bennett’s case, according to ESPN.com’s Tim McManus: “The only two possible outcomes for this case is the DA’s office [saying] they don’t have a case and dismissing, or a trial—one or the other. If and whenever they ask for a plea, it will be not guilty.”authentic nfl jerseys

Bennett is facing a felony charge of injury to the elderly stemming from an incident that occurred after Super Bowl LI at NRG Stadium in Houston last year.hi-res-533c59058d5d9ef59a3b05c8395774ec_crop_northwholesale nfl jerseys

Per McManus, Bennett allegedly pushed through security personnel, including a 66-year-old woman who is paraplegic, to gain field access after the New England Patriots beat the Atlanta Falcons in Super Bowl LI.

Bennett was attempting to reach his brother, Martellus Bennett, who was a tight end with the Pats at the time.

Houston Police chief Art Acevedo said Bennett allegedly nfl jerseys wholesale told security, “You all must know who I am, and I can own this m—–f—–. I’m going down to the field, whether you like it or not.”

Last week, Bennett turned himself in at a courthouse in Harris County, Texas, according to Miya Shay of ABC 13.

He later posted $10,000 bond.nfl jerseys china

Bennett was traded from the Seattle Seahawks to the Eagles this offseason along with a seventh-round pick for wide receiver Marcus Johnson and a fifth-round pick.

Moving Down a Level…Technically

If the JBA doesn’t appeal to him, perhaps LiAngelo could consider the Chinese Basketball Association. If NBA scouts aren’t convinced by what they’ve seen from him in Lithuania’s LKL—the 11th-best league in the world, according to ESPN.com’s Fran Fraschilla—a move to the CBA, ranked 12th, may help him juice his numbers and get noticed.

Success against softer competition might build LiAngelo’s nfl jerseys china  confidence, perhaps to the point he’d be ready to skip right past the LKL in a few years and take a crack at the eighth-ranked Adriatic League!bdcac3efb8cab5f56e6dbbd09a56265e_crop_exact

This’ll work so long as LiAngelo didn’t do anything dumb in China like, say, getting arrested for shoplifting.

The CBA presents a problem much like the one the G League does. While it’s easy to conclude the competition is suspect based on guys like Jimmer Fredette, Jared Sullinger and Terrence Jones performing well there, it’s vital to remember those guys were dominant college talents, reasonably effective NBA players at some point…or both.nfl wholesale jerseys

LiAngelo isn’t on the same level as NBA washouts killing it in China, which means he’d have to be comfortable going over there (if anyone would take him) and riding the pine. For someone with NBA dreams, that doesn’t seem like the best strategy.nfl jerseys from china

With options limited by his game and baggage (both self-created and handed down from his father), a return to Lithuania seems like LiAngelo’s best bet. His father can manage the environment and narrative there, and he’s scoring 15.7 points per game on 45 percent shooting from deep in his first nine games with Vytautas Prienu.

“He’s shot it well in Lithuania,” Wasserman said. “But it won’t be enough to make up for his inability to pass, rebound or defend, not to mention the character concerns official nfl jerseys cheap raised from the shoplifting incident. Continuing to build up his game and brand in Lithuania may be his best move, assuming he goes undrafted.”
