San Francisco is going with an almost exact replica of the white uniforms it wore during its Super Bowl-winning 1994 season as part of the NFL’s 75th anniversary celebration. Those threads were so popular that they inspired a change in the 49ers’ primary look not long after.
Though Jones’ salaries over the next two years are not out of line with the market, both will be outside the top 10 among receivers. The Falcons are in win-now mode, and teams with that mindset want to avoid distractions. Atlanta just spent a mini-fortune on Ryan, and the last thing it wants is the QB’s top target absent from practice. So there could be a window for compromise.
Said a former colleague of Tepper: “He’s an asshole, to say the least. I had stuff thrown at me. He can be a nice guy off the desk, in the kitchen or walking to the car. It’s almost like Jekyll and Hyde, you didn’t know any given day who was going to walk through the door.”
After Hurricane Sandy hit New Jersey in 2012, Tepper donated $230,000 in $100-value gift cards to residents affected by the storm. The giveaway was organized by Better Education Institute and Better Education for Kids, both of which were founded by Tepper.
Tepper has been critical of president Donald Trump. Just before the 2016 election, he told CNBC that “Trump masquerades as an angel of light, but he is the father of lies.” He previously had told the New York Post that Trump “may be demented, narcissistic and a scumbag.”
Tepper supported Barack Obama in the 2008 election and then Mitt Romney in 2012. He voted for Hillary Clinton for president in 2016 but supported Republicans in Cheap Reversible Jerseys congressional races that year.
Tepper has committed more than $125 million in Cheap Pittsburgh Penguins Jerseys donations to Carnegie Mellon. He serves on the university’s Board of Trustees.
