|Gene Steratore Christopher Tanev Jersey , the referee who worked the Super Bowl in February, is calling it a career.
NFL V.P. of officiating Al Riveron announced today that Steratore has decided to retire from the NFL.
Steratore has been an NFL official since 2003 and worked 12 playoff games, including Super Bowl LII. He may be best remembered for an odd moment last season when he pulled out an index card to determine whether a spotted football had reached the first down stick in a game between the Cowboys and Raiders. Raiders coach Jack Del Rio objected to Steratore’s demeanor, and the NFL said afterward that Steratore should have used his eyes, not an index card.
The NFL has seen a lot of turnover among its referees this offseason Troy Brouwer Jersey , with Jeff Triplette, Ed Hochuli and Terry McAulay also retiring. Last year the NFL retained all 17 of its referees from the year before, but this year there will be a major change in the refereeing ranks.
The NFL has suspended Green Bay Packers running back Aaron Jones for the first two games of the 2018 season without pay for violating the league’s substance abuse policy. Jones will miss the season opener against the Chicago Bears on Sept. 9 and the Week 2 matchup against the Minnesota Vikings, with both games at Lambeau Field.
He will be eligible to return to the roster on Sept. 17, the day after the Vikings game.
The discipline stems from a traffic stop in Brown County Authentic Harrison Smith Jersey , Wisconsin, on Oct. 1, 2017, in which Jones was charged with operating a vehicle with a controlled substance in his system; speeding; and operating a vehicle without a valid license. The case came to light after he entered a plea of not guilty on Nov. 15.
The case was resolved in February with Jones pleading no contest to the first charge. He was ordered to pay more than $1,000 in court costs Radek Faksa Jersey , and his license was revoked for six months. The other two counts were dismissed.
The Packers cited confidentiality in declining comment. A representative for Jones referred to the player’s apology in November.
”I owe an apology to my family, teammates, coaches, the fans and the Packers organization,” Jones told reporters on Nov. 21. ”I made a mistake Womens Clay Matthews Jersey , and I take full responsibility for it. And it won’t happen again.”
Jones can take part in all preseason practices and games. Players must report to Packers training camp on July 25.
Jones was second on the team in rushing last season with 448 yards and four touchdowns on 81 carries. Fellow rookie Jamaal Williams had a team-high 556 yards and four scores on 153 carries, giving coach Mike McCarthy a young but promising one-two punch in the backfield.
The Packers still have Williams returning at running back along with Ty Montgomery, who was limited to eight games last season because of injuries.
