Jones, the New England Patriots’ 2001 fourth-round pick, was the first-ever University of South Florida athlete selected in the NFL draft. He got minimal playing time in 2001, but does have a Super Bowl ring to his name thanks to his team’s win that season. He played 11 games in the NFL at right tackle in 2002, then underwent double knee surgery prior to the 2003 season, sidelining him for the year.
Mets second baseman Asdrubel Cabrera hobbled badly grounding out in the first and third inning, then was replaced by Jose Reyes in the top of the fourth due to a tight left hamstring.
Brees beat Peterson last year in a conditioning test, and Peterson still remembers it.
Being up there in New Orleans just for that short period of time, and just seeing him, man, I’m talking about clockwork, Peterson said. You see this guy out on the field two hours before practice and he’s going through his fundamentals. He’s in the weight room. He’s lifting. He’s cut up. The funny thing is once we did our conditioning test, that’s probably the first time I ever lost a conditioning test.
It helps explain why Brees keeps going strong at 39, with far less fanfare or discussion than the media devotes to an avocado ice cream-eating 40-year-old quarterback who is only 17 months older than Brees. However long Tom Brady lasts in the NFL, don’t rule out the possibility of Brees playing until an even older age.
Now, Al Jazeera still hopes to bolster Sly’s credibility as it relates to the things he said about Zimmerman and Howard, claiming that McGill confirmed much of Sly’s allegations about Peyton Manning.
