According to ProFootballTalk.com, former Green Bay Packers outside linebacker Aaron Kampman too out an ad thanking Packer fans on the back page of the Saturday’s Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel.
Clearly, Kampman is one heck of a class act.
When the Packers switched to a 3-4 defense last year Kampman moved to outside linebacker.
He was never thrilled with the move, nor did he look like he fit the role.
Upon the start of free agency Kampman became a unrestricted free agent and signed with the Jacksonville Jaguars.
To be honest I cannot recall the last time a player thanked the fans in such a manner.
In the end, hopefully more players will show their gratitude for their former team’s fans in these kind of ways.
Football players on a team are a closely knit group of people as to them it is their second family.
However, even in the closest of families a person antics will wear thin on the rest of the family.
According to ProFootballTalk.com, Pittsburgh Steelers punter Daniel Sepulveda joined 93.7 The Fan in Pittsburgh, PA to talk about a variety of different subjects, which of course included Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger.
Sepulveda stated this on Roethlisberger’s situation, “It’s regrettable to see him struggling in the media the way he has in putting himself in these positions. You know, it’s hard to comment on that kind of thing. We’re going to be there for him as teammates in any way we can be to help him through these deals. I don’t know, he’s a very capable quarterback obviously. My locker’s next to his in the game locker room, and that’s on business day, you know that’s game day. So I don’t think I’ve said more than a couple sentences to him in the three years that I’ve been here even though we locker next to each other, but you know it’s all business on game day so you can’t read into that. It’s tough to say, we’re gonna be there for him in any way that we can be, but you know it’s not cool to see him getting in trouble like this all the time.”
It is clear that Roethlisberger is starting to tick off his fellow teammates and if his teammates are aggravated then the front office has to be livid with him.
The Steelers are for now waiting to for the justice system to run its course, which means that if Roethlisberger is charged with the crime the Steelers will most likely play without him in 2010.
In the end, the only person that Roethlisberger has to blame for being in this situation is himself.
According to the Cleveland Plain Dealer, via ProFootballTalk.com, the Cleveland Browns will not pursue guard Shawn Andrews even though Browns general manager Tom Heckert was previously with Philadelphia Eagles who Andrews just got released from.
That most likely means Andrews is done in the National Football League.
Andrews missed all of 2009 and played in only two games in 2008 and in addition to his history of injuries he is also battling depression.
Ross Tucker of SI.com called him one of the best guards in the National Football League for a couple of years.
For Andrews to miss that many games to injury is an indicator that he wasn’t taking care of his body as he should have.
In the end, it is just another example of how the NFL has turned into a what have you done for me lately league.
There were already major questions about the character of former Oklahoma State wide receiver Dez Bryant.
Those questions have potentially been confirmed as Bryant’s actions may have just cost himself millions of dollars.
According to Jason LaCanfora of NFL Network, via ProFootballTalk.com, Bryant was in attendance of Adam “Pacman” Jones work out for National Football League scouts Friday.
That right it shows that he doesn’t care about what anyone thinks the as the only thing that matters is what he thinks of something.
Also, it shows that Bryant is dumb as a bag of rocks.
All of April’s National Football Leagues prospective Draft prospects are all playing it safe. That way they don’t get arrested as doing so would cost them millions.
In the end, Bryant will be lucky to get picked in the first round.
