Broncos Safety Denies Vegas Casino Charge [VIDEO]
A lawyer says he’s trying to resolve criminal allegations that Denver Broncos safety Quinton Carter cheated at a craps game at a Las Vegas-area casino.Attorney Andrew Leavitt appeared on Carter’s behalf Monday before a North Las Vegas judge who postponed action in the case until April 18. Carter didn’t appear.
Leavitt says Carter “adamantly denies” adding $5 chips to three bets after the dice already rolled.
The 24-year-old former North Las Vegas high school football star was arrested late on March 9 at the Texas Station casino in North Las Vegas, where police say security video showed the acts.
Carter faces three felony charges of fraudulent act in a gaming establishment that each carries a possible sentence of one to six years in prison and a $10,000 fine.
Kraft says Patriots made better offer to Welker. New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft says his team’s contract offer to Wes Welker was better than what the wide receiver got in Denver.
Kraft also says Welker’s agent, David Dunn, “misrepresented” Welker’s market value.
When asked about Patriots quarterback Tom Brady being upset that Welker left after Brady reworked his own contract, Kraft adds Monday: “I don’t answer to Tom Brady. He’s an important member of the team and we chatted. He has never put a demand” on the Patriots.
Welker got a two-year, $12 million deal with the Broncos. Kraft says Welker could have received $8 million in the first year of a two-year contract with New England as opposed to $6 million he gets in Denver “and there is no guarantee that he plays the second year there.”
Broncos boss John Elway announced the deal with Welker through his Twitter account last Wednesday. (AP)
