LONDON (AP) — American investor Shahid Khan’s 600 million pound ($785 million) offer to buy Wembley Stadium survived a meeting of the Football Association’s board without being rejected on Thursday.A decision was taken by the board of English soccer’s governing body to take a presentation on the terms of the sale to the larger FA Council Ronnie Harrison Jersey , which features representatives from across the English game and next meets on Oct. 11.The FA’s chairman and chief executive want to sell Wembley to Khan, who owns the NFL’s Jacksonville Jaguars and Premier League team Fulham, to raise funds for footballing facilities across England.The FA has agreed to put the proceeds of any deal into a trust but some Council members, including former Premier League chairman Dave Richards, have questioned why Wembley needs to be sold only 11 years after the rebuilt national soccer stadium reopened. Former England player and assistant coach Gary Neville said the cash for grassroots infrastructure could be raised from wealthy Premier League clubs or by taking a cut of agents’ fees on transfers.Even if the FA Council and board approves the sale, the government would have to sign off on the deal because it provided some of the 120 million pounds in public funding for the 757 million pound rebuilding project in north London.The takeover agreement includes provisions to ensure the stadium remains a top-level soccer venue available for cup finals and England games, and maintain restrictions on stadium sponsors, including the ability of a betting company to be associated with the Wembley brand.“If we are fortunate to ultimately be approved as the new owner and steward of Wembley, we would first and foremost operate the stadium with nothing less than exceptional care and respect,” Khan said in a statement.The FA would retain the rights to hospitality packages for games, which are valued at 300 million pounds in terms of future earnings.“Following on from this discussion, the FA board has agreed to take the presentation to the FA Council to get its input now that the full facts are known,” said the FA.Khan said the FA’s decision was “welcomed and encouraging,” five months after his purchase plans were announced.“I understand the discussion was open and thorough https://www.jaguarsfanstore.com/Will-Richardson-Jersey ,” he added. “One cannot ask for more as we continue to work through the process with the FA board, FA Council, Sport England (government-funded agency), the Mayor of London’s office and DCMS (Department of Digital, Culture, Media and Sport) toward reaching an agreement that will serve English football for generations to come.”If Khan completes his purchase of Wembley, it raises the prospect of an NFL franchise in London — potentially the Jaguars.Wembley has staged regular-season NFL games since 2007 and the Jaguars started playing at the stadium in 2013 — the year Khan bought Fulham, which would continue to play matches at Craven Cottage in west London.“The Jaguars’ investment in London as our home away from home, at a time when other NFL teams are becoming more interested in the UK, will be protected and enhanced,” Khan said of his proposed Wembley takeover. “In Jacksonville, our footing as a small market NFL franchise will be significantly strengthened by the new local revenue streams we will be able to count on well into the future.”Wembley, which staged its first event in 1923, was in private ownership until the FA raised the funds to buy the site and redevelop the stadium before the 2007 re-opening. NASHVILLE Logan Cooke Color Rush Jersey , Tenn. (AP) — So you want proof the NFL is an aerial circus? Try the second round of the draft.And some of the third.Of Friday night’s first 32 picks, 11 were defensive backs charged with holding down pass catchers, of which seven were chosen. Plus another seven offensive linemen charged with protecting the guys who throw the ball.Only one of those, Drew Lock of Missouri, was taken in Round 2, going to Denver 42nd overall after the Broncos traded up with Cincinnati to get Lock. Some projections had him going in the opening round.“Certainly. It certainly does,” Lock said when asked about being even more motivated to prove himself now that he slipped so far; the previous quarterback selected was Dwayne Haskins at 15th.“I know the kind of player I am. I know the kind of player I’m going to be. This adds a little chip to the shoulder bigger than the one that’s already on there.”Many players might have that outlook, thinking they belonged in the opening round. Such as tackle Jawaan Taylor of Florida and guard Cody Ford of Oklahoma, who were on hand for the draft and had to wait much longer than other prospects.“It was a little devastating,” Taylor said of being ignored Thursday before the Jaguars grabbed him. “I just have so much confidence in myself and I have high expectations for myself. I feel like I have something to prove … so I’m just looking forward to seeing what happens next.”As is Ford, who now belongs to Buffalo, which like Jacksonville traded up for the blocker.“I came back tonight because last night was a terrible disappointment,” Ford explained. I’ve worked so hard to walk across that stage, I didn’t want to leave and regret not being able to do that opportunity.”The defensive big guys dominated the opening round Andrew Norwell Jersey , then there was much more of a mix on Friday. Again, the SEC had the most picks with 13 in the second round, another six in the third, on top of the nine the previous night.“In the SEC, I had 35 career starts,” Taylor said. “I left a year early, but I feel like I was ready and prepared to play in the NFL because I played against a lot of great competition. Definitely playing at Florida, playing in such a great conference, prepared me for this role.”The second round began with cornerbacks Byron Murphy of Washington and Rock Ya-Sin of Temple going to Arizona and Indianapolis respectively.A bit later, that run continued with Central Michigan’s Sean Bunting, Clemson’s Trayvon Mullen, Vanderbilt’s JoeJuan Williams, LSU’s Greedy Williams — at one point considered the top defensive back in this crop — and Utah safety Marquise Blair.It didn’t subside until safety Juan Thornhill of Virginia went to the Chiefs on the penultimate selection in the second round.One spot later, Seattle moved up for Mississippi WR DK Metcalf https://www.jaguarsfanstore.com/Austin-Seferian-Jenkins-Jersey , who was rated by some the best wideout in this group.Arizona finally pulled off the trade of QB Josh Rosen, expendable because the Cardinals took Oklahoma’s Kyler Murray to start proceedings on Thursday night. Miami sent the 62nd overall spot to the desert for Rosen, a first-rounder a year ago.The Cardinals opted for UMass receiver Andy Isabella with that pick.Other than Lock, the only quarterback chosen Friday was West Virginia’s highly productive Will Grier to Carolina at No. 100, two spots from the end of the night.Teams began branching out in the third round — the final four rounds will take place Saturday — with running backs getting some attention. But not too many: four, making for a measly six overall. Alabama’s Josh Jacobs went in the opening round, and teammate Damien Harris did so in the third. Penn State’s Miles Sanders was the only RB drafted in Round 2, by Philadelphia.Still available are North Carolina State quarterback Ryan Finley, and All-Americans tackle Mitch Hyatt of Clemson, guards Beau Benzschawel of Wisconsin and Bunchy Stallings of Kentucky, linebacker Ben Burr-Kirven of Washington, and safety Deionte Thompson of Alabama.
