Hope he finds one!

Former Tennessee Titans defensive tackle Albert Haynesworth, 38, is suffering from kidney failure and has taken to Instagram to announce that he is in "dire need" of a donor for a transplant.

"Well this is hard for me to say but my doctors said I should reach out to my family, friends and fans," Haynesworth wrote Wednesday. "Some of you may know I've been battling kidney disease for a few years ... now the time has come family, friends and fans, I'm in dire need of a kidney ... mine have finally failed me on July 7 2019. It's hard to believe from being a professional athlete to only 8 season in retirement that my body has taken another major blow.

"First with the brain aneurysm 3 seasons out of the NFL to now my kidneys failing me," the post continued. "But the bright side of this latest ordeal I can ask for help by asking for someone to generously donate a kidney. If you are interested in giving this precious gift please call Vanderbilt at 615-936-0695 and hit option 2. GOD BLESS thank you for your prayers and thanks for sharing this message."

Los Angeles running back Melvin Gordon has informed the Chargers that unless he receives a new contract, he will not report to training camp and he will demand a trade, his agent Fletcher Smith told ESPN.

Pay this man

I probably wouldn't. I like Gordon, but the guy has only played 1 full season since entering the league, and I think Ekeler and Jackson could easily pick up his production if they trade him.

The problem for Gordon is that we all know how it turned out for Bell in sitting out he basically lost a year's pay and ended up getting a deal in free agency from the Jets that was no better than he would have got playing last year for the Steelers. When Bell's career is over he's probably going to look back at the millions lost and regret the decision. Gordon isn't even at Bell's level so I just don't see how sitting out and losing $5.6 million is viable for him. I have to assume he's going to eventually report if the Chargers call this bluff.

The chargers would have given him 300+ carries and ran him into the ground. I'm pro player though, especially in the NFL

He never plays enough to get that many carries. The reason Gordon is holding out is likely because he knows he's an injury risk which is why he wants the contract now and not next year. However that's also the reason the Chargers won't extend him.

The Arizona Cardinals have released offensive tackle Desmond Harrison after a warrant was issued for his arrest on felony charges of assault in North Carolina.

A Greensboro police spokesman told multiple news outlets that an incident report was filed Tuesday. The charges would be assault on a person by strangulation and assault on a female by a male.
