Giants Signing: Ex-NFC East Rival Beats Out Former Falcons RB for Contract

Kelvin Benjamin wasn’t the only notable NFL veteran to propel a solid tryout showing into a contract this weekend. The New York Giants have announced the signing of former Philadelphia Eagles running back Corey Clement. The 26-year-old was among Big Blue’s five tryout players over the team’s three-day rookie minicamp.

Clement, a New Jersey native, spent the first four seasons of his pro career in Philly flashing an enticing dual-threat skillset. In 46 career games, he accumulated 655 rushing yards and seven touchdowns on 163 attempts, while adding another 340 yards and two touchdowns through the air on 37 receptions.

Clement’s biggest claim to fame dates back to his rookie season when the Wisconsin product amassed 108 total yards in Super Bowl LII. His 22-yard touchdown reception was a pivotal turning point in helping the Eagles edge out the New England Patriots, 41-33. Clement’s career-high 100 yards receiving on the night was the fourth-highest total by a rookie in Super Bowl History and the third-most by a running back — regardless of experience.

Clement Outdueled Ex-Falcons RB Ito Smith for Roster Spot

While Clement ultimately showed enough to land himself a deal, it didn’t come without a little competition. Ex-Falcons running back Ito Smith was also among the Giants’ tryout players over the weekend. A former fourth-round pick, Smith supplanted both Brian Hill and former NFL Offensive Player of the Year Todd Gurley in Atlanta’s running back pecking order over the final six weeks of last season. From Week 12 on, Smith rushed the ball 50 times for 222 yards (4.4 ypc. average).

By most accounts, the competition between both Smith and Clement was neck and neck following the first day of rookie minicamp.

“Running backs Ito Smith and Corey Clement, here as tryouts, both looked pretty good,” USA Today’s Art Stapleton tweeted. “Each showed shiftiness in passing drills. I’d imagine one of them gets signed to the #NYGiants 90-man roster by the end of the weekend. We’ll see.”

However, Clement began to separate himself on the second day.

“In the perceived battle of tryout vet …read more

Bear Was Arrested in London in January After Georgia Accused the Reality Star of Revenge Porn

Bear, who won Celebrity Big Brother in the U.K. in 2016 and appeared on Ex on the Beach in 2015 and 2016 in addition to his three seasons of The Challenge, was accused by Georgia in early December of filming them in intimate situations without her consent and sharing the video.

At the time, Georgia said, “So, guys, we all knows revenge porn gets a minimum three years, right? Do u think the sentence is worse when someone secretly films it like an absolute nonse without someone’s consent? So if an ex was to film me on a hidden camera in an environment where I felt safe and then sent it to people … that’s gotta be a heavy stretch pending surely?”

She explained that Bear has CCTV installed around his house and that he made sure when the two were intimate that it would be captured on CCTV. The Love Island star said then accused Bear of sharing the footage with his friends on WhatsApp.

After his January arrest, Bear issued a statement denying the allegations and saying he was “a victim himself.” He said, “this is now a police matter and up to them to decide the facts of these immature and ridiculous rumors.”
