Would you give up a six-figure contract to be with Kim Kardashian. Because that is what Cowboys WR Miles Austin is doing. Allegedly.
Terez Owens is reporting that Miles turned down Red Bull's six-figure offer because he was going to be shooting a commercial with Kardashian's ex-Reggie Bush.
That seems smart:
The Dallas Cowboys Miles Austin likes following in Reggie Bush’s footsteps..but apparently he won’t follow Reggie on his latest endorsement deal.Miles has turned down a six-figure endorsement deal with Red Bull..According to my source, the reason Miles said no to Red Bull is because Reggie Bush already has a contract with the energy drink company..Kim did not want Miles to walk down that path..I hope Kim is gonna pay him back..how the hell does a dude turn down six figures..truth be told, he would have never gotten the offer if he was dating Kim Kardashian..-TO
Well, Austin is the top receiver on the Cowboys. So it is not fair to say that he would not be receiving this deal without Kardashian. From what I hear, the Cowboys are rather high-profile.
Still Austin should have told this chick to pound sand. Seriously, pull out any issue of Playboy and Austin is frolicking with playmates. None of them carry the baggage of Kardashian.
If this is a ploy to ride the winning streak of the Kardasian sisters, well, you have to respect that. Otherwise this is kind of sad.
WE ARE coming to the point where the closest Terrell Owens will come to catching a pass from an NFL quarterback this year would be if he masqueraded as an Oak Grove High School student.
Owens removed himself from consideration by the Chiefs on Wednesday. Which assumes, of course, that the Chiefs had any interest in the enigmatic receiver. But a high-profile coach and a high-profile linebacker took their teams out of the running for Owens’ services Thursday.
Panthers LB Jon Beason told NFL enthusiasts during his chat that there was “no way” that T.O. could play for Carolina.
“There’s no way T.O. could be a Panther,” Beason wrote. “Based on the fact that our ownership and coaches believe that the locker room is important and based on T.O.’s history, for whatever reason, he’s been a distraction in the locker room.”
That’s a pretty strong statement, considering Panthers WR Steve Smith once broke a teammate’s nose during a training-camp fight.
Earlier Thursday, Redskins coach Mike Shanahan made it very clear that he wouldn’t take a chance on T.O. That’s a real slap in the face, considering the Redskins are reinventing the “Over the Hill Gang” by signing a gaggle of veteran running backs, and they also have shown interest in Brian Westbrook.
The team even took on troubled Larry Johnson. How worthless are you as a person if Larry Johnson is a better alternative.
AND FINALLY ...
SOMEBODY IN America believes Brett Favre will retire this offseason.
Ha, ha. Just kidding. That’s crazy talk. Nobody believes that.
Favre will play for the Vikings in 2010. I don’t believe America has been this united on a subject since we unanimously agreed that the ending of The Sopranos was really lame.
The only thing certain in life, other than death and taxes, is that Favre will return to the NFL. Or at least we’ll keep talking about it.
But good lord, did you have to spend so much of the red carpet asking about Favre's return? Good lord.
And speaking of the ESPY's Seth Meyers' monologue was awesome. Not sure he will ever top Norm MacDonald's classic performance over a decade ago. I mean, when you tell Charles Woodson that your Heisman will live forever unless you kill your ex-wife and a waiter, nobody is touching that blast.
Meyers was really good.
The best part was that Deadspin was moaning that ESPN would never be daring (the ESPY's crushed 'The Decision') and the monologue would never be good (Meyers owned). But at least Deadspin admitted its mistake.
Yeah, right. You would be more likely to find somebody who believes that Favre is retiring before Deadspin would ever admit to being wrong.
