A pair of Rams legends are going into the Hall of Fame, but the team’s owner didn’t bother to show up
It’s Hall of Fame weekend! That means two things. First, the induction ceremony with the speeches and memories and enough nostalgia to make you choke. Second, there’s a football game.
It’s a great moment for the players, fans, teams and even the team owners, who can come across as callous billionaires, but sometimes genuinely enjoy the sport … well, except for Rams owner Stan Kroenke.
Early in training camp, Fitzgerald Cameron Erving Jersey was asked how much longer he planned to play, and he didn’t seem to have a firm timeline.
Fitzgerald said retiring as an Cardinal is a priority, and he has expressed uncertainty about how much longer he plans to play. One of the caveats Fitzgerald had for continuing to play was that he didn’t want to go through adapting to a new quarterback. By also extending Palmer, the Cardinals have alleviated that concern for Fitzgerald.
Palmer’s extension is worth $24.35 million, and Carl Nassib Jersey the next two years of his contract are fully guaranteed, according to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport. Palmer played at a high level in 2016. He threw for 4,671 yards and 35 touchdowns, which were both career marks for the veteran quarterback. Fitzgerald’s extension is worth $11 million and is also guaranteed for injury.
The Cardinals, who finished the regular season 13-3 a year ago, also extended another key member of the team earlier in the week when they locked down defensive back Tyrann Mathieu.
Terrell Owens responded to Marvin Harrison’s Hall of Fame criticism of him with a gun joke. No, he didn’t? Yes, he did. Go back and read GQ’s story about the Marvin Harrison gun case. Harrison’s legacy is complicated. Now, go back and watch Tim Brown’s reaction to Harrison being a no-show at the announcement in February.
Brett Favre got to star in an episode of Breaking Madden, where the Ol’ Gunslinger tried to save the Rams. He also has an infomercial for razors that are not very popular. He once drowned a deer. As a boy, Brett Favre did everything that you’re not supposed to do when you go deer hunting. And a jacked Favre was a terrible NFL Draft analyst.
Fitzpatrick looked like Beavis, if Beavis had actually been able to grow a beard. If he would have said he spent his offseason serving as an extra in the wildlings’ scenes in Game of Thrones, we wouldn’t have been surprised. His hair was spectacular.
