Mahomes II robbed in Texas

On Friday evening, Patrick Mahomes II and some of his friends attended a baseball game in Tyler, Texas. After the game he and his friends went home and pulled up in front of their residence. When they got out of their car in the driveway, the robbers blocked them in with their vehicle. One of the robbers got out and approached them, acting like he may have been armed.

Mahomes and his three friends were robbed, but immediately called 911 to report the incident. The cops quickly tracked down the car and arrested both men. Mahomes and his friends got all their items back, and luckily, no one was hurt during the incident.

Eddie Lacy's first weigh-in

Running back Eddie Lacy earned a $55,000 dollar bonus from the Seattle Seahawks today for coming in under 255 pounds. Lacy weighed in at 253, and his agent tweeted the positive news.

When Lacy signed with the Seahawks after spending his first four years with the Green Bay Packers, everyone knew about his weight issues. That is why his contract with the team contained seven weight bonuses that are worth a combined $385,000.

Sources say his second weight-in will come on June 12 and he will have to be at 250 or less. He also has to be at that weight by August 1. Lastly, he will be weighted every month during the season and must come in at 245 pounds or less.

Chargers make two moves

Two weeks after the Los Angeles Chargers selected Western Kentucky guard Forrest Lamp in the second round they cut his predecessor, veteran Orlando Franklin. Franklin has been in the NFL for six seasons, spending the first four with the Denver Broncos. The Chargers then signed him to a 5-year, $36.5 million dollar deal in free agency.

Franklin played in 26 of a possible 32 games, but his play was uneven during his two-year tenure with the team. The move to release him saves the team $2.8 million in cap space and makes him the third starting offensive lineman to be released by the team this offseason.

To fill the roster spot, the Chargers signed former Carolina Panthers safety Tre Boston. In three seasons with the Panthers, Boston played in 42 games and started 16 of them. For his career, he has 108 tackles, 2 sacks, 3 interceptions and 10 passes defended.
