Ex-QB surrenders on charges

  • Follow NFL

Former NFL quarterback Ryan Leaf surrendered to Texas authorities to face burglary and drug-related charges.

Attorney Bill Kelly says Leaf turned himself in Friday at the Randall County Jail in Canyon, where the former No. 2 pick was indicted in May after coaching quarterbacks at West Texas A&M for three seasons. Kelly says Leaf posted $15,000 bail and headed back to Washington state.

Leaf faces one count of burglary and eight drug-related counts associated with the painkiller Hydrocodone. He was arrested Wednesday in Washington state after entering the U.S. from Canada. He posted bond there and flew to Texas.

San Diego drafted Leaf out of Wash-ington State in 1998, and the Chargers released him after three disastrous seasons. He played part of one year for the Dallas Cowboys.

BABY BRADY? Is she or isn't she?

People.com is reporting Gisele Bundchen is pregnant. Citing two anonymous sources, the report says Tom Brady 's wife is due early next year.

Brady's mother, Galynn , told The Associated Press on Friday that she had no comment on the report. The supermodel's agent at IMG, Anne Nelson , told the AP that she doesn't comment on the personal lives of her clients.

Brady has a son, Jack, with actress Bridget Moynahan .

In late May, the New England Patriots quarterback said Bundchen was not pregnant.

"One is enough," Brady said on May 28. "I have dogs, and that's all I need."

RadarOnline.com previously had reported that Bundchen was telling friends she's pregnant.

KOSAR FILES FOR BANKRUPTCY: Former NFL and Miami Hurricanes star quarterback Bernie Kosar has filed for bankruptcy protection in Miami.

Kosar's Chapter 11 filing Friday lists assets between $1 million and $10 million and liabilities of between $10 million and $50 million.

Kosar owes almost $1.5 million in "unsecured debt" to the Cleveland Browns, who he played for from 1985 to 1993. Kosar also owes his ex-wife Babette $3 million and $725,000 (from a personal loan) to the owner of the Cleveland Gladiators of the Arena Football League. He owes a bank more than $9 million for bad real estate deals.

The 45-year-old Kosar got divorced in 2007 and last year saw his steakhouse go out of business.

Kosar, who also played for the Cowboys and Dolphins, retired from the NFL in 1996.

CHIEFS: Waived long snapper Thomas Gafford , wide receiver C.J. Jones , defensive tackle T.J. Jackson and linebacker Darrell Robertson .

Gafford played nine games as the Chiefs' long snapper last season while Jackson played in four games a year ago.

VIKINGS: Waived quarterback Sean Glennon , offensive lineman Bobby Lepori and tight end Nick Walker .

All three were signed as rookie free agents after not being drafted in April. Glennon played at Virginia Tech, Lepori at Fresno State and Walker at Alabama.

BILLS: The disorderly conduct case against Buffalo defensive back Donte Whitner has been pushed back to July 31, but won't interfere with his preseason workouts.

Whitner appeared in Cleveland Municipal Court on Friday on allegations of trying to force his way past officers dealing with a crowd outside a nightclub in April. He's charged with disorderly conduct and resisting arrest.

Wow, talk about life after

Wow, talk about life after football Bernie Kosar in deep. If only Ernest Byner hadn't fumbled that ball, imagine how his life might be different. I'm sure that's what he's thinking right now.
