Nothing witty to all.

Something that slipped under the radar this weekend with all of the Maurice Clarett stuff going on at the combine is that Braylon Edwards jumped in with a group of running backs for the bench press repititions evaluation (receivers are not required to participate in the bench press) unannounced and then proceeded to bust out 22 reps at 225 lbs. Apparently, NFL execs who were in attendance were initially quite confused by Edwards' move but then were so impressed with his feat of strength that they gave him a standing ovation upon the completion of his workout. Then former FSU QB Adrian McPherson followed Edwards' lead and jumped on the bench as well and knocked out 23 reps. My guess is that McPherson must've had a bet going with Edwards on who could do more reps. The lesson here of course is...never bet against a convicted gambler.

In more combine news, Maurice Clarett's lawyer and "most trusted confidant" (his words) is none other than David Kenner. For those of you not familiar with Mr. Kenner, he was the lead attorney for Suge Knight and Death Row Records during the mid-to-late nineties. No wonder Clarett ran a 4.82, he was wearing a bulletproof vest and carrying a glock...I hear its really tough to run with a gun in your waistband.

It's not THAT hard to run with a Glock in your waistband. After all, they are really lightweight.

I'm wondering if McPherson will get drafted. I don't think it would be as a QB though. And he's got plenty of red flags all around him. I know there are lots of Bucs fans who want him picked up b/c he's from FSU and went to HS near Tampa.

I doubt McPherson will get drafted. He didn't play a whole lot of college ball and he wasn't that great when he did play (from memory). Of course the Broncos has Jarious Jackson on their roster for a few years so stranger things have happened.

It's about time for Maurice Clarett to get a lot less famous.

Apparenly McPherson threw 61 Tds in the Arena League last year...which may or may not constitute a good season.
