Getting back to the NFL was the goal of San Diego Fleet players, and seven made it there last month.Now it gets tougher.Teams will cut rosters from 90 to 53 before the NFL season opens and also will swap out players from the bottom. Tuesday, the Minnesota Vikings released former Fleet safety Jordan Martin to add a cornerback.The recent NFL Draft stacked the odds higher against Alex Barrett and Kameron Kelly, alums of San Diego State who started all eight Fleet games before the team’s parent league, the Alliance of American Football, was shut down.

The violent crime increase in San Jose — which follows spikes of 14 and 7 percent in 2016 and 2017 — is driven largely by a nearly 19 percent projected rise in robberies and 2 percent in rapes. On the other hand, homicides decreased to 27 in 2018, … [Read more...] about San Jose: Violent crime continues to rise as chief calls for reinforcements
