In an effort to not give Wes Welker his hard earned money, the Patriots have said that they will sign every free agent Tight End by the end of the month. The Patriots, who already signed TEs Aaron Hernandez and Rob Gronkowski to new deals this off season, released a statement earlier today: “It seems like the most logical thing to do. Why have three or four Tight Ends, when you can have twenty to thirty?”
It looks like Desean Jackson will be releasing a rap album later this summer. He’s also been working on a series of music videos to accompany the rap album. Oh boy, this should be good.
You can see Jackson’s appearance at the three minute mark in the video below.
And of course, here’s a picture of the Ferrari they rented for one of the music video shoots.
At least he’s putting his hard earned money to work.
From the Boston Herald:
There was an auction held with the highest bidder getting to sing with the Pats tight end, who just came to terms on a new six-year $54 million extension. The winning bid was $2,500, and a woman was on stage as Gronk ripped into “Sexy and IKnow It” by LMFAO. He moved around on stage, swivelled his hips, and danced a bit as he sang. There were no signs of trouble with his ankle, which he had arthroscopic surgery on following the Super Bowl.
And here’s the pictures.
Looks like Gronk had a great time.
First, there was Tebowing. Now, there is Jaguaring. Dangit, Jacksonville … stop this.
While on their 2013 calendar shoot in the Dominican Republic, the cheerleaders took some time to make a lip dub to Carly Rae Jepsen’s “Call Me Maybe”.
In an effort to fight slumping ratings, the NFL Network has reportedly agreed to televise a 16 hour documentary that explains what occurred during the lockout.
“Viewers will finally get to know what happened during this controversial yet highly exciting and energetic event,” the NFL Network said in a statement released this morning. “They will be able to watch the entire meetings, hearings, and arguments that took place during the lockout, including the six hour meeting between NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell and the NFL Players Union.”
NFL Network expects ratings to rebound after the premiere of the documentary. They plan to show it continuously on NFL Network for 2 weeks.
The Saints GM has reportedly given Saints kicker Garrett Hartley an eight-year $100 million extension. The deal makes Hartley one of the highest paid players in the league.
“You know, it really is awesome to finally be recognized for your talents,” Hartley said in a press conference after inking the deal.
Hartley, who missed a significant amount of the 2011-2012 season due to an injury, said he was not surprised by the extension. “I wasn’t surprised. I was expecting it. Just wasn’t sure when.”
Saints GM Mickey Loomis was not available for comment but did mention that this deal shows “Who’s boss” of the Saints organization.
After leading the Philadelphia Eagles to an inevitable doom last season, Quarterback Vince Young agreed to a one-year deal with the Buffalo Bills last Friday. In a press conference to announce the deal, Vince Young said he was very excited to play for the Bills. “You know I’m very excited to play for a team of this caliber,” Young said. “I promise you I won’t goof around like I did last year and call this team a dream team.” After a few seconds of snickering to himself, Young stood up and declared in a stern voice, “There is only one dream team in the NFL! And that is the Bills!” Young then ran out of the room laughing to himself.
The Bills should keep a close eye on Young or a lot of passes like this might happen next year:
After years of speculation and rumors, Osi Umenyiora has confirmed through Twitter that Lesean Mccoy is his mother. Check out the tweet below.
And Mccoy’s response:
Well, it looks like they’re having some beef for dinner tonight.
Despite opposing claims from countless sources, Jonathan Goodwin is in fact listening to his pre-game playlist. Shocking.
Check out the entire letter below:
I know it has been a rough week, so I wanted to reach out. Players dying, players suing and on top of that my peers are just going off on you in the media. It does not help that ESPN has all of a sudden become Medical TV with damn near every brain expert on the planet. This has got to be the worst week ever. Since no one is showing any support, I figured I would be the first. You are in one big ass catch 22 and quite frankly, I am not sure there is any solution. One thing I think can help is killing the NFL PR machine.
Y’all do a darn near perfect job at portraying this game as one played by heroes.
But let’s be real dad. This is a nasty, dirty and violent game with consequences. Sign up or go get a regular job. Watch it or turn off the TV and go fishing with your kids. It is really that simple. I know there are probably legal and financial implications that prevent this blunt depiction, but am not sure if you have a choice. If you don’t say it now, the mounting evidence being revealed publicly will say it for you very soon. In all, I love you and if anyone can lead us out of this mess, it will be you. Oh by the way, I have a deal for you. Am having a rebound year and plan to do a lot of celebrating in the end zone. Can my fine money go to supporting ex-players suffering?
Looking forward to Ocho’s celebrations?
The NY Jets have announced the likely starter of the team for the 2012-2013 season: Bronx. Never heard of him? Well, he’s Tim Tebow’s pet dog. The little K-9 beat out both Mark Sanchez and Tim Tebow to claim the starting QB role. When asked in an post-practice interview where he learned his moves, Bronx responded, “Back in Denver, I got tired of watching Tim Tebow on Sundays. So I turned on Air Bud and watched it over and over. It was an inspiration.” He continued, “I’m also very thankful because not many dogs are given this opportunity.” Bronx also plays corner back on defense and is in competition with Antonio Cromartie for the starting spot.
