Deion lands gig with Barstool Sports

Deion Sanders has landed a new job, a day after it was confirmed that he was leaving NFL Network.

Barstool Sports announced Wednesday that Sanders will host the “21st and Prime” podcast for the website. The announcement came on Barstool’s podcast, “Pardon My Take,” which had Sanders as a guest last month.

“I had no idea when I went on with you guys last time that this would transpire so quickly,” Sanders, 53, said on the podcast Wednesday.

The Pro Football Hall of Fame member also tweeted about his new job, saying Barstool Sports “is giving me the platform to give u everything I got inside of me and more. This next generation needs TRUTH & SUBSTANCE now!”

Multiple reports Tuesday said Sanders’ contract with NFL Network had expired. He had been a network analyst since 2006.

“Deion has been one of the key figures responsible for the growth of NFL Network,” Alex Riethmiller, the network’s head of communications, said in a statement Tuesday. “We thank him for his work and wish him the best in the future.”

A two-time Super Bowl champion and eight-time Pro Bowl selection, Sanders recorded 53 interceptions during his 14 NFL seasons with the Atlanta Falcons (1989-93), San Francisco 49ers (1994), Dallas Cowboys (1995-99), then-Washington Redskins (2000) and Baltimore Ravens (2004-05).

Sanders was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2011.

As we head into week four of the 2018 NFL season injuries are starting to pile up. Should Aaron Rodgers be expected to make it through the season considering his previous injuries? Is Garoppolo’s injury serious? how long should I expect a player in my fantasy league to be out if they’re on injured reserve?

Get a Grip: The Week in Sports Betting

The post Get a Grip: The Week in Sports Betting appeared first on SportsHandle.

It’s information overload everywhere, and there’s not time enough to sleep and eat and stay fully apprised of what’s happening on this crazy blue dot of ours (two out of three ain’t bad).

Here’s the weekend Sports Handle item, “Get a Grip,” rounding up top stories in sports betting and gaming, and the world of sports at large. You may have missed them, and they are worth reading. This is meant to be brief, so that’s it.

MGM, PlaySugarHouse.com Debut Mobile App, Online Platform

It’s been a busy week in the virtual world of sports betting, as MGM finally dropped its mobile app in New Jersey. The company soft-launched the app for Android users on Wednesday with the intention of making it more widely available in the coming weeks. The playMGM NJ Sports app was released through the MGM-owned Borgata in Atlantic City will give company to the DraftKings Sportsbook, which had fully launched on Aug. 6 and remained the only online sports betting app available in New Jersey. The current version of the app offers tons of betting opportunities, including straight bets, futures, props, and parlays available. The professional (NFL) and college football menus are queued up with a wide variety of different player and team props, futures and totals. The only thing that appears to be missing the chance for in-play wagering.

MGM Mobile Sportsbook In New Jersey With Borgata’s PlayMGM App

PlaySugarHouse.com, owned by Rush Street Gaming, followed a day later when it launched an online betting platform, also for New Jersey users. What’s special about this one is that it integrates the new sports wagering opportunity for state residents with its already operating online casino. Rush Street’s platform is the third to be introduced in the Garden State this summer, with plenty more sure to come.
