PHOENIX - A Phoenix court has lowered the bond used to release Arizona Cardinals running back Jonathan Dwyer from jail after he was arrested on charges that he assaulted his wife during arguments at their apartment. Jerry West Lakers Jersey .Maricopa County Superior Court Commissioner Jeffrey Rueter on Monday reduced Dwyers bond from $25,000 to $10,000 and removed a requirement that the player wear an ankle monitoring bracelet. But Rueter declined a request by the players attorney to secure his release without a bond.Dwyer has been out of jail since posting bail hours after his Sept. 17 arrest.Investigators have said Dwyer broke his wifes nose with a head-butt during a July 21 argument, and the next day punched her and threw a shoe at his 17-month-old son, who wasnt injured. Dwyer was initially booked on suspicion of aggravated assault against his son but was not indicted on that allegation.His wife told authorities the first assault occurred after she learned about Dwyers recent phone contact with another woman.Dwyer has pleaded not guilty to felony aggravated assault and eight misdemeanours, including assault.Robert Feinberg, one of Dwyers attorneys, argued his client should be released on his own recognizance because Dwyer has no prior criminal history and stands zero chance of fleeing from authorities.He wants to prove his innocence, Feinberg said, adding that Dwyers wife told police on a few occasions that she doesnt want the case prosecuted.Feinberg read to Rueter a glowing letter written by one of Dwyers former teachers and pointed out that the player has strong family support.Where was that support when he was violently going after this victim? asked prosecutor Jay Rademacher, arguing that the $25,000 bond was appropriate.Dwyer was arrested last month as the NFL and Commissioner Roger Goodell came under fire amid a series of off-the-field encounters involving some marquee players, including Ray Rice, Adrian Peterson and Greg Hardy.The day after his arrest, the Cardinals placed Dwyer on the reserve/non-football illness list, meaning he cant play for Arizona again this season.

Cvetkovic finishes his career with 161 games, 66 special teams tackles and will retire as one of the most recognizable members of the community as a Blue Bomber. The 36-year-old came to the Bombers from the Saskatchewan Roughriders in 2003 after spending his rookie season in Regina and has been key part of the Winnipeg organization both on and off the field. "The Winnipeg Blue Bombers would like to thank Chris for his boundless contributions, both on the football field, and in our community, over the past decade plus," said team president Wade Miller in a statement Monday. He was a two-time winner of the Ed Kotowich Award, which recognizes a player for football ability, team camaraderie and extraordinary effort in the community. "His tenacity, desire to win and build team camaraderie was very evident during my time playing with him, and we truly appreciate all of his efforts," said Miller. Michael Cooper Jersey. Cvetkovic has lived in Winnipeg year-round since 2005 and in 2012 started a not-for-profit organization called Cvets Pets that helps local Winnipeg No-Kill Animal Rescue Programs. He also organized a trip to Mexico with other CFL players where they spent time volunteering at an animal sterilization clinic and has worked with several charities. During the winter of 2011, he was one of seven CFL players who travelled to Haiti to aide in tsunami relief efforts through a program called Huddle for Haiti. "He was a great locker-room guy and a player whose efforts both on and off the football field will be missed," said Winnipeg general manager Kyle Walters. ' ' '
