Welcome to your Football Friday edition of The Morning After Huddle, bringing you all things NFL. In the words of Beyoncé, girls run the world! (Or, in this case, overall business operations.)
Here’s what you need to know:
- Sandra Douglass Morgan wil be the Team President of the Las Vegas Raiders, making her the first black woman to ever serve in this role in NFL history! Prior to her time with the Raiders, Morgan was the chairwoman of the Nevada Gaming Control Board. She also has history with the Nevada Gaming Commission, AT&T, and multiple roles as an attorney. Morgan is the third woman to serve as an NFL Team President, joining the Bill’s Kim Pegula and the Panther’s Kristi Coleman.
- Unfortunately, it was not a good week for all. Bears WR David Moore is facing drug and weapon charges. He was officially charged with possession of a controlled substance and unlawful carrying of weapons. Officers fielded calls of a possible intoxicated person in a vehicle and located Moore, finding edibles and 3 firearms. The Bears WR was eventually released on bond.
- Without further ado, your Key Signings Roundup:
- Justin Houston is signing a one-year deal to remain with the Ravens. This will be Houston’s 12th year in the NFL.
