Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump released financial documents last week to show that he’s worth more than $10 billion, but the 69-year-old business magnate once may have had an opportunity to be the owner of the New England Patriots as well.
According to the Boston Globe, Trump was approached by the Sullivan family about buying the team. Billy Sullivan founded the Patriots as members of the American Football League in 1960, but he was facing bankruptcy in 1988 and attempted to sell the team.
Although Trump was interested, he didn’t want the burden of taking on the team’s debts.
Guion wound up paying a $5,000 fine in a plea deal to avoid prosecution for his arrest, but both Guion and the Packers knew a suspension was likely coming before the start of the regular season. The NFL does have pretty clear evidence that Guion did actually have the things he was arrested for, as you can see in this image below:
The Packers re-signed Guion to a one-year deal worth $2.75 million in March shortly after Guion agreed to pay the fine as part of his plea deal. Guion played in all 16 games for the Packers in 2014, putting up 32 tackles, 3.5 sacks and a forced fumble. He’s set to be a starter at one of the end spots this season, but with this suspension he’s set to miss crucial outings against the rival Chicago Bears in Week 1, the Seattle Seahawks in Week 2 and the Kansas City Chiefs in Week 3.
Kelvin Beachum’s done really solid work at left tackle for Pittsburgh and hasn’t gotten tons of fanfare about it, as has Ricky Wagner on Baltimore’s right side. In Philly, Lane Johnson had a good year and looks like a solid pick amid a sea of questionable offensive line picks from early in that 2013 draft, and Terron Armstead, a third-rounder that year, has come on strong for the Saints. These four players could become household names over the next couple of seasons.
