Photo Gallery: Checking out Kendall Marshall, Aquille Carr and the Delaware 87ers

The Delaware 87ers recently kicked off their season down at the Bob Carpenter Sports Convocation Center in Newark and we were lucky to have friend of the Level and photographer Tug Haines down at a game last week to snap some great photos of the D-League action. You can check out the gallery below.

There are two shots of Kendall Marshall since he is the team leader in several stats as well as in spirit. There is a great shot of everyone's favorite ballhog and YouTube sensation Aquille Carr. Tug described his ballhogedness as "potentially a detriment but he is an electrifying player and a crowd-pleaser." There are also shots of former La Salle player Steve Weingarten and former Temple Owl Dustin Salisbery. JR Inman went to Rutgers. Thanasis Antetokounmpo is a Greek/Nigerian. You may recognize the familiar face of Big Daddy in there. He told Tug he's going to be at every 87ers home game he can possibly attend.

The Sevens dropped the Thursday night game to the Idaho Stampede. Carr and Marshall both lead the way with 22 points each.

Passion. Pride. Delaware.

Former Eagles linebacker DeMeco Ryans joins 49ers coaching staff

Former Eagles linebacker DeMeco Ryans joins 49ers coaching staff

About a year ago, while in Indianapolis for the combine, the Eagles cut veteran linebacker DeMeco Ryans. 

Ryans has finally found his next job ... as a coach. 

The 32-year-old former linebacker has been named a defensive quality control coach on Kyle Shanahan's staff in San Francisco. Shanahan was on the Texans' staff for the first four years of Ryans' pro career. Niners defensive coordinator Robert Saleh was also on that Houston staff. 

After the Eagles cut him last Feb. 24, Ryans was out of the league in 2016 after 10 NFL seasons. He played the first six years of his career in Houston, where he was a two-time Pro Bowler, before joining the Eagles through a trade in 2012. 

While the Eagles cut Ryans after the 2015 season to save $3.5 million in cap space, they made a point to go out of their way to praise him on his way out. He was very well thought of in the locker room and throughout the building. 

While Ryans played one season under Andy Reid, he quickly became a favorite of Chip Kelly, who frequently called Ryans the "Mufasa" of the Eagles' defense. 

Kelly didn't forget about Ryans when he went to San Francisco to coach the 49ers for the 2016 season. In fact, in Kelly's questionnaire in the NFL's 2016 information guide, Kelly listed Ryans as a player who'd make a great head coach. 

1992 interview between Donald Trump and Randall Cunningham surfaces

1992 interview between Donald Trump and Randall Cunningham surfaces

Philadelphia Magazine's Dan McQuade unearthed a YouTube video of a 1992 interview former Eagles quarterback Randall Cunningham did with real estate tycoon Donald Trump from his short-lived interview special titled Randall Cunningham’s Celebrity Rap.

Apparently, it was a show on WCAU where Cunningham sat down with random celebrities. As McQuade points out, it is pretty weird.

And one of those celebrities just so happened to go on to become president of the United States.

There isn't a whole lot about sports. Trump briefly mentions Randall's career with the Eagles and also discusses Mike Tyson and his rape conviction. Trump appears sympathetic to Tyson's struggles.

Mostly it's a puff piece in which Trump talks somewhat aimlessly from topic to topic. If you don't want to waste 15 minutes watching it, Philly Mag summarized the most bizarre moments
