The wide receiver had a weekend extravaganza to celebrate his 29th birthday. Two “celebrity” events (the adjective is in quotes because some of those attending were the likes of Mike…

    The Washington Redskins signed safety Justin Hamilton, who was out of the league in 2007, on Friday. Normally, that’s all the mention that the acquisition of a street free agent would merit.
