YORK, Pa. (AP) – A suspended Baltimore police officer has been jailed in Pennsylvania for violating his bond on charges he exchanged sexually explicit texts and videos with a 15-year-old Pennsylvania boy. York County, Pennsylvania prosecutors say 25-year-old Timothy George III talked of marrying the teen before the messages were discovered by the boy’s father, who alerted authorities. George had been free on bond, but a York County judge on Wednesday ruled that new assault charges Baltimore County, Maryland authorities filed Tuesday violated that bond. George’s attorney objected but was overruled. George was arrested in March on charges he abused his 21-year-old boyfriend. Those charges were

June 7 (UPI) -- Odell Beckham Jr. still hasn't shown up to the New York Giants' voluntary OTAs, but he is honing his ball skills at private workouts. Beckham was shown in a video Tuesday posted by Uninterrupted. The video showed the superstar sitting on the ground shirtless, while making a running motion with his hands. He catches several footballs one-handed out of the jugs machine. The three-time Pro Bowler is under contract through 2018, but has hinted that his absence from the Giants is contract related after several Twitter interactions. He retweeted an article where ESPN's Adam Schefter said if he were Beckham, he would not show up at OTAs, minicamp, or any other activity until his contract

During a breakout season in 2016, New York Giants safety Landon Collins went from one of the NFL's most promising young defensive players to one of its best overall, an All-Pro. Dave Merritt, the team's safeties coach, thinks the 23-year-old Collins has room to grow. On a scale of 1 to 10, Merritt rated Collins a 7 heading into his third season.

No less of a coach than Pete Carroll of the Seattle Seahawks believes that Colin Kaepernick is ''a starter in this league,'' whatever that means. It certainly doesn't mean Kaepernick will have a job in the NFL this coming season. Not in Seattle, which declined to sign him, and probably not among the other 30 teams that - under different circumstances - would be lining up to outbid each other to sign a quarterback of his talent.

When players don’t come to voluntary OTA sessions, it’s generally not because they want to work out with Johnny Football or go bowling with Iggy Azalea. Finally, what appears to be the real reason for New York Giants receiver Odell Beckham’s OTA absence has come out. ESPN’s Adam Schefter said although Beckham’s camp won’t admit it, sources say Beckham is angling for a new contract and that’s why he hasn’t attended OTAs. Beckham is still on his rookie deal and his salary this season is only about $1.84 million.

Recently, the 24-year-old posted a video to Twitter of a new one-handed catch drill, and it is very impressive. The 3-time Pro Bowler sits a few yards away from a JUGS Machine, which rockets footballs over his head. OBJ hauls in each ball with one hand. This is not only a great drill to improve one-handed snags, but over-the-shoulder catches, too. What makes the drill even more impressive is that OBJ isn't wearing gloves. Beckham hasn't been attending OTAs with the Giants, which are voluntary, but he has been working out with former Cleveland Browns quarterback Johnny Manziel. At least OBJ is still putting in the work to have a great season. We will probably see him make some spectacular one-handed

Odell Beckham Jr.'s absence from the New York Giants' organized team activities is directly related to the wide receiver's desire for a new contract, sources told ESPN's Adam Schefter. Beckham has been one of several Giants players who have missed the voluntary offseason workouts over the past few weeks.

Following the loss of Dennis Pitta to another hip injury, the Baltimore Ravens have added another tight end to their stable. The team signed former New York Giants and Pittsburgh Steelers tight end Ryan Malleck on Tuesday. To make room on the roster, the Ravens waived/injured cornerback Carlos Davis, who sustained a fracture in his leg earlier this offseason.

No less of a coach than Pete Carroll of the Seattle Seahawks believes that Colin Kaepernick is ''a starter in this league,'' whatever that means. It certainly doesn't mean Kaepernick will have a job in the NFL this upcoming season. Not in Seattle, which declined to sign him, and probably not among the other 30 teams that - in different circumstances - would be lining up to outbid each other to sign a quarterback of his talent.

REYNOLDSBURG, Ohio (AP) -- New York Giants backup receiver Roger Lewis Jr. was arrested for operating a vehicle under the influence over the weekend. Reynoldsburg Police say Lewis was arrested at 4:16 a.m. Sunday after his 2012 Audi was stopped for several
