As the 134th overall pick in the 2018 NFL draft, Cardinals running back Chase Edmonds got a $452,359 signing bonus. He already knows what he’ll do with $80,000 of that: Pay off his sister’s student loans.
Edmonds hatched a plan when he was 10 years old for how he was going to help out his family: First by getting a football scholarship, then by paying Cheap China NFL Jerseys off his older sister Morgan’s schooling when he got his NFL contract.
Some rookies get their signing bonus checks and immediately buy jewelry or cars. That Edmonds had something else in mind shows that the Cardinals drafted a player of high character.
The dismissed defendants owned and operated the venue, but the law makes them responsible only if they have exclusive control of the site. The evidence introduced during the trial showed that Rams and the now-dismissed defendants had joint control of the Edward Jones Dome on game days.
This puts the Rams solely on the hook for Bush’s injury, which happened when he ran out of bounds and slipped on a ring of concrete surrounding the playing surface.
And it’s clear someone other than Bush was responsible for his injury. Although ACL tears have become commonplace in the NFL, that’s one of the risks a player assumes when suiting up and crossing the white lines. Once beyond the playing field, others have a responsibility for ensuring that reasonable risks are foreseen, and minimized.
Bush was the second player in two Sundays to slip on Cheap Giants Jerseys the concrete. The prior week, then-Browns quarterback Josh McCown hit the concrete and skidded into a wall, injuring his shoulder. Two weeks later, a blue rubberized cover had been placed on the concrete.
While evidence of what the law calls subsequent remedial measures usually isn’t admissible, since that would discourage defendants from acknowledging and fixing hazards. But Bush will be able to prove that it would have been easy to solve the problem, by for example putting a blue rubberized cover on the concrete.
