A poorly written paper on Rosa Parks that a whistleblower claims earned a University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill student athlete an A-minus is raising eyebrows.

Former UNC learning specialist Mary Willingham shared the paper with ESPN while discussing "paper classes," courses that she and a former UNC football player told ESPN were classes that didn't really exist. They were billed as independent study time and students needed only to write a final paper to receive a grade -- usually a good grade that boosted a student's GPA so he remained eligible to participate in athletics.

LOS ANGELES (AP) - A judge in Los Angeles has again refused to release former NFL All-Pro safety Darren Sharper from jail.

Sharper is awaiting trial in Los Angeles after pleading not guilty to charges that he raped and drugged two women last year. He was previously released on $1 million bail before being charged in Arizona with similar counts.

Now, his lawyers say he should be freed again and kept under house arrest because authorities in Arizona have said they won't seek his extradition.

NEW ORLEANS (WAFB) -

The New Orleans Saints announced the signing of fullback Erik Lorig to a four-year contract Tuesday afternoon.

The 6'4", 250-pound fullback played with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers from 2010-2013.

He was picked in the seventh round of the 2010 NFL Draft out of Stanford University.

Lorig was originally drafted as a defensive end and converted to fullback/tight end early in his rookie season.

The addition of Lorig to the Saints roster could signal the end of popular fullback Jed Collins' playing days in New Orleans.
