Carrying pads… no problem! Goofy hair cut… bring it on! Denver Broncos QB Tim Tebow is setting a new precedent for rookie hazing. Last month, Dez Bryant took some heat for not carrying veteran teammate Roy William’s pads. LenDale White posted the picture above on his Twitter account after Tebow got a rookie hazing haircut.
Tebow said he gladly accepted the haircut because it “built team chemistry.” Wonder if Tebow will keep the haircut for his jockey photo shoot?
He fooled us again… Brett Favre is not retiring, well officially. News broke Tuesday saying the legendary quarterback texted the Minnesota Vikings saying he was retiring. According to Favre, he will play next season but only if his ankle is healthy and denied sending the text messages.
Many bloggers believe the text messages were planted by someone inside the Minnesota Vikings to get a response out of Favre as to his plans for the upcoming season.
Legendary quarterback Brett Favre is retiring… or so he says. While no official statement has been released, Favre sent text messages to the Minnesota Vikings saying, “This is it.” After leading the Vikings to the NFC title game, Favre underwent ankle surgery during the offseason and has been struggling to bounce back. News of Favre’s retirement comes just weeks after he joked about playing until he was 50.
This is not the first time Favre has said he is retiring nor is it the second time. After many seasons of playing with Packer fans emotions, Favre officially retired in March of 2008 before changing his mind one month later. Favre was released by Green Bay to play for the New York Jets, where after one season, he retired yet again. Amid speculation of a comeback, Favre signed with the Minnesota Vikings in May of 2009. Favre had originally planned to play with Minnesota for the 2008 season, but Green Bay would not release the QB to a NFC rival.
Sorry Favre we’re not buying that you’re retiring…
Dancing With The Stars is where NFL players go when they retire, and it looks like former quarterback Kurt Warner will be joining the Season 11 cast. Warner stole the hearts of millions of football fans last year when he led the Arizona Cardinals to the Super Bowl.
Last week, retired Dallas Cowboys QB Troy Aikman told TMZ he was getting on his dancing shoes to join the show, but he was only joking.
Warner won a Super Bowl with the St. Louis Rams, but will that be good enough to win the coveted Mirror Ball Trophy?
