Sources have confirmed to CBS Philadelphia that Ravens running back Bernard Pierce was carjacked at gunpoint on Sunday night in Philadelphia. Pierce and another man were uninjured during the robbery, and Pierce's car has already been recovered by police. Via CBS Philadelphia, sources say a gunman jumped from a car while an accomplice remained behind the wheel and robbed Pierce and his companion, then stole Pierce's BMW.
Please save your Aaron Hernandez jokes; they are not funny. A frightening incident for Pierce, who was an All-American at nearby Temple University, but he should be fine. Pierce will see more carries than the 108 he got during his rookie year, and Ray Rice seems to understand that. But I am not overly concerned about Rice's short-term fantasy stock. He is a sure-fire first-round pick, and Pierce is one of the better backup RBs a fantasy drafter can select.
