    A law professor is taking up the appeal of the man convicted of manslaughter in the 2016 road-rage shooting death of former NFL running back Joe McKnight.

    Loyola University’s Dane Ciolino tells the New Orleans Advocate that he already has law students working on 56-year-old Ronald Gasser’s appeal [link=]Tommylee Lewis Jersey[/link] , which he has taken up pro bono. He said the appeal will focus on the trial court judge’s decision to permit jurors to hear testimony about Gasser’s arrest for an alleged road rage incident at the same intersection years prior.

    Ciolino says the admission of reports of the prior incident was ”indefensible” and tainted the trial.

    Gasser was sentenced to 30 years in prison. The trial court judge rejected his motion to reconsider his sentence last week.

    When most NFL teams find success, they quickly find it’s harder to sustain it.

    Now that the Eagles have a Super Bowl title, they’re already losing coaches, and the players who stay behind are going to start to want their reward.

    Via Dave Zangaro of NBC Sports Philadelphia [link=]Amara Darboh Jersey[/link] , defensive end Brandon Graham is ready to parlay his strong play (and his Super Bowl-deciding strip-sack) into a new contract.

    “For me, it’s all about getting as much as you can while you can play because when it’s over, it’s over,” he said. “I know Howie [Roseman] and those guys, if they want me here [link=]Jonathan Cooper Jersey[/link] , they’re going to make sure that they get me here. For me, I want to be here. Everybody knows I want to be here. They see the passion I have and I’m happy to be able to bring the trophy back to Philly.

    “Now, it’s just all about just making sense, just getting me protected for the future. Because obviously I want to retire here and I know I’m going to retire here because I’ve been here a long time. I would love to retire here. It’s all on what they want to do. I’m just going to embrace it, whatever it is.”

    Graham is entering the final year of the four-year deal he signed in 2015 [link=]Jerome Baker Jersey[/link] , and is scheduled to make $7 million in base salary.

    He’s also coming off a career-high 9.5 sacks last year, and is in an environment in which others have gotten paid (Fletcher Cox, Vinny Curry, Tim Jernigan) already. The Eagles tacked on $1.5 million in incentives to the final two years of his deal last offseason, but now they need to do something more than that good-faith gesture.
