Post The man who shot
The man who shot and killed Sean Taylor more than a decade ago hopes to get out of prison at some point before 2060.

Eric Rivera Justin Williams Jersey , who was 17 at the time, received a 57-year sentence in 2013 after being convicted of second-degree murder. Via David Ovalle of the Miami Herald, Rivera seeks a reduced sentence for two reasons: (1) sentencing laws for juveniles have changed; and (2) several other defendants in the case received much shorter sentences.

“I don’t think he should behind bars for the rest of his life for something that was a mistake and an accident,” Rivera’s mother testified on Wednesday.

Said Rivera, now 28, in court:聽 “I believe I deserve a second chance because I’ve grown. I know I can be a productive citizen.”

Rivera and four other youths robbed Taylor’s South Florida home in November 2007, at a time when they believed he was out of town. Rivera shot Taylor as he rushed them with a machete that he kept in his bedroom for protection. The bullet severed Taylor’s femoral artery , and he later died at a local hospital.

The mastermind of the plot, Jason Mitchell, received a life sentence. Venjah Hunte, Timmy Lee Brown, and Charles Wardlow are serving 29 years, 18 years, and 30 years Colts Authentic Jerseys , respectively.

The Minnesota Vikings have exercised their fifth-year contract option on cornerback Trae Waynes.

The move was made Monday by the Vikings, who drafted Waynes with the 11th overall pick in the first round in 2015. He was the first cornerback taken that year.

Waynes has been a starter for the last two seasons, opposite All-Pro Xavier Rhodes. Waynes has five interceptions and 35 passes defensed in his career and was credited by the Vikings with 72 tackles in 2017.

Picking up the option gives the Vikings a window of almost two years to sign Waynes to an extension before he can hit free agency. They have yet to reach a new deal with linebacker Anthony Barr, the 2014 first-round draft pick now in the final year of his rookie contract.
