Every year in training camp, Wesley Woodyard swears off his favorite treat: flavored shaved ice.
But when Brian Orakpo sponsored a Kona Ice truck to be open on the sideline after Tennessee Titans practice Monday, Woodyard had every flavor available, in five different cones.
And when coach Mike Mularkey sponsored a second day …
“I had three more today,” said Woodyard, a starting inside linebacker. “Grape and pina colada, those are probably the two best ones. That’s my weakness. It sucks, every time I go to camp I get on a no-Icee kick. I was like, I don’t want a regular ice-cream truck. But a frozen-ice truck? I am there.
“I stay away from them in camp. I made an exception. And I went too far.”
Orakpo said he came up with the idea as something different for the team after hot days.
“We’ve been grinding,” he said. “It’s just something nice, different, a change of scenery. Practice is over. Instead of coming in, it’s a nice treat after a long, physical, hot day.
“Wood loves this thing.”
According to the NFL official reporter Mike Garafolo, Buffalo Bill signed the free agent linebacker Brandon Spikes to a one-year contract on Sunday.
This is Spikes’ second time to join Bill, erenow his first four seasons spent in the New England Patriots, after that, he turned to Bill in 2014 season, soon followed by unemployment. Spikes was offered a trial by Miami Dolphins but left without a contract last week.
In order to make room for the three new signed players including linebacker David Hawthorne, tight end Jimmy Mundine, and Spikes, Bill have released Javier Arenas, wide receiver Gary Chambers, and linebacker Kevin Reddick.
Spikes had even returned to the Patriots in 2015, but later he was released due to involvement in a Hit-and-run incident, followed a suspension for four games by violated NFL Personal Conduct Regulations. The new season Spikes will work for Rob Ryan and his brother Rex Ryan.
Earlier this year, the Bills’ second-round pick Reggie Ragland got a knee collateral ligament tear in training and will miss games for a long time. Bills have no choice but to sign Spikes.
The Cincinnati Bengals tight end Tyler Eifert will not longer participate in Pro Bowl. Eifert got an ankle injury in the last Pro Bowl, he underwent surgery but are not sure when to return to the field.
On Friday, Eifert told reporters that his protective boots will be removed in a week and said that it still has not a definite timetable for his return to the stadium.
Eifert expresses he will never participate in the Pro Bowl again even if he is selected because he thinks that is not worth a risk.
Apparently, the Pro Bowl needs to adjust. The league’s president Roger Goodell expressed dissatisfaction with the status quo for the Pro Bowl. So hoping those can change the status quo. Players will be able to bring the unique experience to the fans but don’t have to worry about missing training due to the injuries.
Bengals hope Tyler Kroft, the third-round pick last year, would make progress after having caught 11 balls for 129 yards and one TDs in the last season.
