Back in January, former Miami Dolphins player Rob Konrad was involved in a fishing accident that forced him to swim 9-miles to safety.

This was probably the first time a swimming dolphin was considered breaking news.

He had fallen overboard, and his ship, which was on autopilot, quickly sailed away from him.

After 16 long hours at sea with sharks and jellyfish, he finally reached shore. A new video has been released this week showing his first encounter with police in Palm Beach after the swim.

You can watch his January press conference about the ordeal below.

The Mariners signed Robinson Cano to a 10-year, $240 million contract, ending his tenure with the Yankees. Negotiations were done between the Mariners and Jay-Z, (yes, that Jay-Z) but were almost halted when Jay-Z wanted the Mariners to add a tenth year to the nine year deal they had already spoke about. It didn't matter though because the Mariners caved because they desperately need a big bat in their lineup after watching nearly everyone on their team bat lower than .250 on a consistent basis.

George Zimmerman claimed self-defense when he shot and killed a young, unarmed man named Trayvon Martin in 2012. He was acquitted of all charges and now he's selling the gun as "a piece of American history".  

Maybe his confederate flag business isn't doing so well? 

Bidding starts at $5,000 and he is literally planning to use some of the proceeds to fight Black Lives Matter activists, or as he put it according to the video "fight [Black Lives Matter] violence against law enforcement officers".
