By Matt Kawahara Published 2:44 pm, Friday, April 6, 2018 The Raiders added to their defensive depth Friday, signing free-agent cornerback Senquez Golson and defensive end Armonty Bryant. Golson, 24, was drafted in the second round (56th overall) in 2015 by the Steelers but has not played in an NFL game. He spent two seasons with Pittsburgh on injured reserve with shoulder and foot injuries and part of last season on the practice squad in Tampa Bay. If he can stay healthy, Golson adds an intriguing element to the Raiders’ cornerback mix. In college at Mississippi, Golson recorded 16 interceptions in 49 games and was named a unanimous first-team All-American as a senior in 2014. The Raiders’ cornerback group includes free-agent signees Rashaan Melvin, Shareece Wright and Leon Hall, as well as returning players Gareon Conley, Dexter McDonald and Antonio Hamilton. Bryant has appeared in 36 career games, mostly with the Browns from 2013-15. His most productive season … [Read more...] about Raiders sign free-agent CB Senquez Golson, DE Armonty Bryant

Every election year is different, but not always that different -- especially with the House of Representatives. Historically, most districts tend to stay with whichever party holds them. The vast majority of incumbents are re-elected, and even when the House majority changes hands, it's a result of fewer than 20 percent of district flipping. So we can use a lot of known factors to gauge which districts could be competitive this year -- even before all the candidates are decided -- and we can also show you why you ought to look district by district, rather than simply tracking national numbers. We've analyzed more than a decade's worth of House voting patterns, looking at trends in every district's past vote and how similar districts have behaved, and incorporated current characteristics and political factors for each. All this tells us that there are likely to be more than enough competitive districts to put the House into play. For each of the 435 House districts, our current, … [Read more...] about How CBS News estimates whether House races will be competitive in 2018
Americans reflected on Wednesday on the 50th anniversary of Martin Luther King Jr.'s assassination. Former CBS News correspondent Bill Plante covered the aftermath in Memphis of the April 4, 1968 assassination. Plante, who retired in 2016, told CBSN's Tanya Rivera on "Red & Blue" that King's assassination made him a "martyr." "As I think Jesse Jackson said today, people hate marchers but they love martyrs -- and that's a very good point," Plante said. "Once he was martyred as it were, he assumed an importance that will never die ... The fact that he did die enshrined him forever as the person he was -- who spoke fearlessly for civil rights and nonviolence. He was really deeply committed to nonviolence." MLK assassination: How Walter Cronkite covered the April 4, 1968 tragedy In his initial report, Plante reported the hundreds of people who visited King's body in Memphis. "They were old, they were dressed for work, they were almost all black -- and for some of … [Read more...] about MLK assassination: CBS News’ Bill Plante recalls covering Martin Luther King Jr.
