Video: Patriots’ Tom Brady was secretly ready for dig at Roger Goodell, fifth Super Bowl ring

Patriots QB Tom Brady took the high road when asked about his upcoming encounter with NFL commissioner Roger Goodell following New England’s Super Bowl LI win over the Atlanta Falcons.

Turns out Brady already had his own dig at the commissioner ready in advance.

Shields HealthCare aired a local ad just after the Super Bowl featuring Brady putting away his Super Bowl rings into a safe.

Brady first puts away his four rings but then gets asked by the technician if he has anything else to put away.

Magically, he pulls out a fifth ring and the technician suggests he gets a bigger safe next time, delivering a perfect set-up line to Brady’s not-so-subtle jab at the man who suspended him for four games for Deflategate.

“Roger that.”

Yes. Roger THAT.

NFL must play its cards right when it comes to Las Vegas

It’s official.

The NFL has approved the relocation of the Oakland Raiders to Las Vegas, and with the move comes the pressure the league must now face in a city that embraces its gambling and vibrant nightlife.

Not only could this cause problems for the league, which has been outspoken against gambling on sports, but it could impact its players, who now have to deal with being in and around gambling year round.

With so many questions, the NFL must embrace these realities of being a part of Sin City in the future.

PFT’s Mike Florio breaks down the NFL’s future in Sin City in the video above from the owners’ meetings in Arizona.

 

Vince Young wants to play again, hires agent Leigh Steinberg

Leave a comment

Vince Young is hoping his football career isn’t over.

Young has hired agent Leigh Steinberg, who announced on Twitter today that Young has a “dream of playing more football.”

That Steinberg used the word “dream” suggests that he and Young realize it will be an uphill battle to get back to the NFL. Young hasn’t played in a regular season game since 2011, when he threw four touchdown passes and nine interceptions for the Eagles. He has spent time with the Bills, Packers and Browns since then but never made it past the preseason.

The fledgling Spring League has already said it would be interested in Young, so he’s got someone interested in him. But the Spring League is a long, long way from the NFL. It’s highly likely that Young has played his last NFL game, even if, at age 33, he’s not quite ready to say definitively that he’s done.
