Stevens Signed by Arizona PD
This probably isn't the signing free agent Jerramy Stevens was looking for. The tight end was arrested early Tuesday morning for drunken driving with a marijuana possession kicker and really, for an NFL player, it's not that big of a deal unless you go Leonard Little on somebody. The Bengals don't even consider drunken driving an infraction anymore. Here is the best part of the report:
As he got out of the vehicle, the report said, Stevens "dropped his cell phone and wallet on the ground, bent down to pick them up, then stutter-stepped to walk" toward the officer.
Yeah, he dropped his cell phone and wallet like it was a pass in the Super Bowl.
UPDATE: That has to be going in the new mug shot HOF.
Money Grubbing Bears: Linebacker Lance Briggs said that he won't play for the Bears anymore because they refuse to give him a contract extension. The Bears have given Briggs the franchise designation that would pay him more than $7M. Now, a lot of people will wonder how Briggs can’t survive on $7M, and that is just a stupid argument. (The next time you go for a raise or complain about the rising cost of gas, remember that there are people in impoverished parts of the world who would kill to make $60K a year.) The career window for NFL players is small, Briggs has made third-round money and now that he has reached Pro Bowl status, he deserves to make money commiserate with his peers.
