Jeff Demps won a Silver medal at the London Games and will now try and win a Super Bowl as he just signed with the New England Patriots. Demps had a successful football career at the University in Florida, but the 5’7″ runningback chose to focus on Olympic trials instead of entering the NFL Draft.
Demps represented Team USA in London when he was added to the men’s relay pool after Mike Rodgers suffered a stress fracture. Demps helped Team USA win Silver in the men’s 4X100 relay.
Demp’s silver medal and 2,470 career yards rushing and 23 touchdowns at University of Florida, caught the attention of NFL scouts. Demp’s agent Daniel Rose said: ”The NFL is about speed and there’s so much you can do with a guy like that if used correctly. He could be a kick returner, slot receiver, stuff like that. There’s gadget plays teams can come up with. If used correctly, he could definitely be a weapon.”
In a statement to People.com, McCarthy said, “Brian and I have decided to turn our romance into an amazing friendship, I

Magazine, “I’m from there and I feel like my son is not getting the childhood that I wanted in LA…. On top of that, I met someone I like and care about, so all those things combined takes me back home.”

After running our country’s foreign affairs as the Secretary of State under the Bush administration, Condoleezza Rice is now turning to modeling. The Cleveland native proudly supports the Browns in the “My Team” marketing campaign for NFL women’s clothing.
Rice joins Alyssa Milano and Serena Williams in what NFL’s director of apparel Rhiannon Madden said is “a message of empowerment. It’s your team–not your guy’s team.”
After finishing last place in the AFC North in 2011, Rice has some advice for the 4-12 Brown, “We’ve just got to find a way to score points,” she said. “Obviously, we’ve got to settle down the quarterback position.”
