Older doesn’t always mean wiser. Former Georgia quarterback James Jackson also didn’t understand the rules of running out the clock. During Georgia’s 1986 matchup against South Carolina, the Bulldogs were up by less than a touchdown with four seconds remaining. James kept the ball until time expired then dropped it on the Gamecocks’ 10-yard line .

Matthews, who was pitching to Packers offensive lineman Lucas Patrick in the Green & Gold Charity Softball Game, was slow to react to the ball, which Patrick hit directly back to him.

NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported Matthews was headed to the emergency room and the belief is he suffered a broken nose, though he’s going through a full examination just to be sure.
Around The NFL will have more on this story as information becomes available.

The son of a former SEC running back and track standout, Beckham excelled in basketball and track as well as football. Go on YouTube and watch him, at 5-11, throwing down dunk-contest worthy slams, pitching softballs overhand straight down the pipe for strikes and smacking home runs. As a kid, he was also offered the opportunity to try out for the U.S. junior national soccer team, but declined. Peep his skills on the pitch, kicking it around with Bayern-Munich’s first team. Even if you think Leonard is better at his sport, which is highly debatable, Beckham is probably better at every other sport, and thus the superior athlete.
