They perform or I quit,’ that was the most gangster [stuff] out of everything.” Jay also fought for the show’s more controversial aspects . . . like EMINEM taking a knee . . . the line in the song “Still D.R.E.” that says, “still not lovin’ the police” . . . or SNOOP DOGG wearing blue to symbolize his former membership in the Crips.

AARON RODGERS might now be the highest-paid player in the history of the NFL. Multiple sources say he signed a new four-year contract with the Green Bay Packers worth $200 million. That’s $50 million a year. Aaron isn’t admitting it, though. He Tweeted, quote, “Hey everyone, just wanted to clear some things up; YES I will be playing with the Packers next year. However, reports about me signing a contract are inaccurate, as are the supposed terms of the contract I ‘signed’. I’m very excited to be back #Year18.” Speaking of franchise quarterbacks, the Seattle Seahawks don’t have one anymore. They just traded RUSSELL WILSON to the Denver Broncos.
They’re getting a lot in return: QB DREW LOCK, tight end NOAH FANT, and defensive lineman SHELBY HARRIS . . . plus two first-round picks, two second-round picks, and a fifth-round pick. A franchise-altering day for the Seattle Seahawks continued with the team informing All-Pro linebacker Bobby Wagner that he is being released. The two franchise cornerstones who were drafted on the same day in 2012 now depart Seattle on the same day 10 years later. Another interested move in the NFL, Josh Gordon – who has an extremely troubled past on and off the field – announced he will be returning to the Chiefs for the 2022 season.
Free-agent wide receiver Antonio Brown reiterated this week that he and Kanye West want to buy the Denver Broncos. AB said that he and Ye are “extremely serious” about making a play for the Broncos. The Broncos were officially put up for sale last month. The Broncos are valued at nearly $4 billion, and their sale is expected to set a new record for the highest price in the history of major American sports. Brown has earned over $80 million during his 12-year NFL career and West has a net worth of $6.6 billion. If the two of them could come up with the money, a sale to Ye and AB would also have to be approved by the rest of the owners in the league. Kanye West and Antonio Brown have become close friends recently, leading West to appoint Brown as president of his sports company, Donda Sports.
Major League Baseball and the MLB Players Association plan to pick up talks on a new collective bargaining agreement this morning after discussions progressed toward a deal for the league to put off canceling another batch of regular-season games. Nearly 17 hours of bargaining starting yesterday morning and ended past 2 a.m. actually saw some breakthroughs on the 97th day of MLB’s lockout, but the union requested to reconvene with player leaders TODAY before responding to the league’s proposal. MLB had threatened to cancel the season’s second week. The ultimatum from the league, which locked out players Dec. 2, was simple: With a new basic agreement, players would report to spring training sites this week, free agency would reopen and, following a shortened spring training, a 162-game season that offered players full pay and service time would commence.
If there is a Major League Baseball season in 2022, some of the games will reportedly be broadcast exclusively on Apple TV+. The streaming network will air weekly Friday Night Baseball doubleheaders as part of a deal scheduled to start this year. Coverage of the doubleheaders will be produced by the league, and they will be exclusively carried on Apple’s platform and not by the team’s local channels. Apple’s deal with MLB will also feature a 24/7 livestream for highlights and game replays and a highlight show called MLB Big Inning that will air every weeknight and include live look-ins to ongoing games.
