Scott Clarke/ESPN Images(SEATTLE) -- Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson took to Twitter to stand up for another home team on Tuesday night.

Russell expressed his frustrations over Seattle's failure to bring an NBA team back to the city, according to ESPN. This comes after the City Council voted against giving part of Occidental Avenue South to an entrepreneur who wants to build an arena.

Wilson urged his Twitter followers to take a stand and start a petition.

 

Seattle, Lets stand up & fight to get our team back! The stadium would sell out every game!

Let's start a petition Seattle! @NBA#WhyNotUs

— Russell Wilson (@DangeRussWilson) May 4, 2016

 

 

Baffling this amazing city doesn't have the #SuperSonics Bring them back! Seattle Loves Basketball!

Seattle deserves a @NBA team

????????????????????

— Russell Wilson (@DangeRussWilson) May 4, 2016

 

Among the issues factoring into the vote were traffic issues and conflicts with Port of Seattle and union workers, ESPN reports.

Stockbyte/Thinkstock(NEW YORK) -- The National Football League is warning its players about consumption of meat in foreign countries. The organization issued a warning to players saying meats in certain countries like China and Mexico contain clenbuterol, which is banned under the league's performance-enhancing substance policy.

Clenbuterol is a muscle-building and weight-loss stimulant, according to ESPN.

The drug-testing program's administrator sent a memo to players, saying "consuming large quantities of meat while visiting those particular countries may result in a positive test."

"Players are warned to be aware of this issue when traveling to Mexico and China," the memo read. "Please take caution if you decide to consume meat, and understand that you do so at your own risk."

Several players, including Arizona Cardinals' Patrick Peterson, took to Twitter after he received the memo.

The substance has reportedly caused positive tests before. Houston Texans  left tackle Duane Brown tested positive for clenbuterol last season after a trip to Mexico, sources told ESPN.

Maddie Meyer/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- Tom Brady has been given more time to file an appeal to overturn his "Deflategate" suspension.

The 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals granted Brady and the NFL Players Association an extra two weeks to decide whether to file written arguments for the court to hear his case.

On April 25, a three-judge panel of the 2nd Circuit ruled 2-to-1 to reinstate the New England Patriots star quarterback's suspension for his alleged role in the use of underinflated footballs at the AFC championship game last year.

Brady's attorney Ted Olson requested an extension on Friday and the NFL filed Monday for the motion to be denied. The NFL is looking to have the matter resolved so "a cloud of uncertainty would not hang over the 2016 season," according to its motion to oppose.

Allen Kee / ESPN(NEW YORK) -- Detroit Tigers starting pitcher Justin Verlander is engaged to longtime girlfriend Kate Upton.

Upton's new engagement ring was on display Monday night at the Met Gala in New York. The model revealed to E News! that she is set to wed Verlander. She said a wedding date has not yet been set.

"I'm really excited. He asked me right before the season started so we've been keeping it on the down low for quite a while," she told E! News. "So I'm excited to finally be able to share it with the world!"

Verlander, 33, and Upton, 23, first met in 2012. Last year, Verlander told Forbes that his relationship with Upton was more "normal" than some may imagine.

"Kate’s there a lot for me," he told Forbes. "And we’re just normal people. You know, normal relationship -- believe it or not."
