Los Angeles Clippers center DeAndre Jordan held a costume party for Labor Day weekend, where he and teammate Matt Barnes did not disappoint in their attire.
Jordan went as Jimi Hendrix and pulled it off flawlessly, while Barnes decided to go as Prince and basically looked just like him.
Barnes posted a photo on Instagram on their way to the party as he was going HAM on some Fireball. Check out the hilarious costumes below!
Every coach in the NFL has their own style when it comes to answering questions. Atlana Falcons offensive line coach Mike Tice put his style on display recently when talking about his unit. The Falcons offensive line was downright awful last year, which caused owner Arthur Blank to question their toughness. Tice promises that won’t be a problem this season.
Tice approved of the way his linemen went after defensive players who hit Ryan during the preseason, and he said opposing defenses had better know there will be no free shots at the Falcons’ quarterback this year.
“The one thing they won’t be, they won’t be punked over by anybody,” Tice said of his line, via ESPN. “That’s encouraging.”
Am I the only one who thinks “punked over” is a funny phrase to use?
While Atlanta’s line may be tougher, it remains to be seen if they’ll actually be better after losing left tackle Sam Baker. Rookie Jake Matthews will start in his place and be responsible for protecting Matt Ryan’s blind side.
One thing is for certain – the Falcons will be in for another long season if the line can’t protect their quarterback.
After the NFL upheld Josh Gordon’s year-long suspension, it was reported that he was considering playing in Canada this year.
The Cleveland Browns quickly put an end to that thought, as they will not allow their star receiver to play in the CFL, even though he is banned from all NFL related activities during the 2014 season.
As Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealersaid during Thursday’s PFT Live, the Browns won’t give Gordon permission to play in Canada. A league source tells PFT that the Browns already have informed Gordon that he won’t be permitted to take his talents to Saskatoon. Or anywhere else in Canada.
The situation seems a little unfair for Gordon, as it would be beneficial for him to be around a structured atmosphere during his suspension from the NFL, rather than mulling around at home.
Either way, Gordon won’t be playing any football this season, in any league. Let’s hope the year off will get him back on track, and he can make a big return next season.
A Georgia high school team flipped to the last page of the two-minute playbook to pull out a thrilling win over the weekend.
The top-ranked McEachern Indians led the North Gwinnett Bulldogs with nine seconds remaining when quarterback John Urzua faked a spike , then threw his seventh touchdown of the game. The TD gave the Bulldogs a 52-49 win.
The game itself had seven lead changes with four coming in the final quarter – so the fake spike for a TD is definitely a fitting end to such an exciting game.
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are reportedly bringing in maligned offensive lineman Richie Incognito for a visit, and if that goes well, it appears they will sign him.
Head coach Lovie Smith had previously said Incognito would have already visited if the team was interested, but recent poor performances by the offensive line has apparently changed things.
Incognito hasn’t had a serious inquiry from a team since being suspended last season. He was a Pro-Bowler in 2012, and although it is unclear if the NFL is going to impose further punishment on Incognito, he would most likely help the Bucs offensive line situation right away.
The Philadelphia Eagles had a semi-nervous moment Thursday night when star running back LeSean McCoy headed to the locker room for X-rays on his thumb. They can now breathe a sigh of relief, as the X-rays came back negative.
McCoy’s thumb is sprained, not broken, and he sat out the remainder of the Eagles’ 31-21 preseason win over the Pittsburgh Steelers.
While he was in the game, Shady racked up 24 yards rushing, and also caught a 22 yard screen pass for a touchdown. He will most likely see very limited, if any, action in Philadelphia’s preseason finale next week.
The Eagles open the regular season September 7th, when the Jacksonville Jaguars come to town.
