Maine governor offers job to ex-Trump aide accused of domestic abuse
The governor of Maine offered to hire back a former staffer and recent Trump aide who left the White House in disgrace when accusations that he had abused his wife were about to become public.
Gettleman has been around the league long enough to understand the best teams build through the NFL draft and player development, with free agency a pick-me-up more than a panacea. The Giants are desperate to fix their offensive line, though, and cannot find two immediate starters in the upcoming draft. There will be less-expensive options in free agency Ryan Jensen (Ravens), Chris Hubbard (Steelers), Senio Kelemete (Saints) but the Giants need a stud they can build around, and that someone appears to be Norwell.
Teams on Monday were allowed to open up negotiations, with contracts not able to be signed until Wednesday at 4 p.m., the start of the new league year. Expect Norwell to be secured before then, as he is in demand. The Giants hit the ground running, inquiring about Norwell, and are not alone in their pursuit of him; the 49ers and Colts are also interested, and the Cardinals might be as well. The expected price tag is more than $12 million per year.
Norwell is the priority for the Giants, but not the only player on their radar.
Running back Jonathan Stewart will visit Tuesday with the Giants, a source with knowledge of the situation confirmed, after meeting Monday with the Lions. He is free to sign at any time, as he was released by the Panthers on Feb. 28. Stewart turns 31 next week and, as a 10-year veteran, would be able to help show rookie Saquan Barkley the ropes, if the Giants select the Penn State sensation with the No. 2 overall pick in the NFL draft.
He left the morning [after] to take his planes for Madrid, she claimed, refusing to elaborate.
Beckham, whose reps didn’t return calls for comment, was in the City of Light at the time, posting pics from Paris on his own Instagram account throughout the first week of March.
The secretly filmed, 7-second video, likely first posted on Snapchat, shows the 25-year-old Giant holding what appears to be a thick, brown blunt in his left hand. The footage then pans to the woman, in bed alongside a card holding a suspicious-looking white substance.
It’s unclear if the video is edited to show the brunette bombshell or if she turns the lens on herself.
