NFL Paid For Patriots Blinged-Out-Rings – While Roger Goodell handing over the trophy to Tom Brady back in February was a little anti-climactic, the good news is the ring Brady put on his finger Friday night at least has a nice http://www.officialbengalsshop.com/shop-by-players-nick-kwiatkoski-jersey-c-2_85.html
bit of satisfaction attached to it.
Aside from the fact the Super Bowl rings symbolize an incredible championship season, Fox Business revealed that the league paid the cost of the 283 diamond carrying rings (symbolizing the historic comeback from the 28-3 deficit they faced against Atlanta) that the players received at owner Robert Kraft’s house on Friday evening. The league, as they do every year, covers the cost of up to 150 rings for each club, which included the ones handed out that night.
They also reported that the cost of the rings back in 2015 were approximately $36,500, which means if this year’s edition falls close to http://www.officialnflfalconsshop.com/shop-by-players-vic-beasley-jr-jersey-c-9_110.html
that, it cost the NFL about $5.5 million.
It was quite the party, which saw the return of Martellus Bennett and other players who have since moved on this past offseason.
The team also released a photo of Tom Brady wearing all five of his championship rings, as well as Bill Belichick wearing each of his.
Despite the four game suspension, as well as taking away a first round draft pick, the league did about all it could have to avoid that scenario. Now, with a stacked group offensively and what might arguably be the best cornerback tandem in the league on the other side of the ball, the Patriots look like they’re poised to make yet another run heading into this season.
It’s likely a nightmare situation for a commissioner who tried as hard as he could to slow them down. Unfortunately, this freight train in Foxboro looks like it will continue to roll on a bit longer, which might cost the league a bit more Zack Sanchez Womens Jersey
money yet again this time next year.
Gronk Runs Football Camp – Coming off of Friday night’s party, Gronkowski was back to work on Saturday morning while hosting his annual Citi Football Clinic at Connolly Memorial Stadium.
According to the Boston Herald, the veteran tight end played catch and spent time doing a little coaching with the hundreds of participants who were on hand, featuring children from grades 1 through 8.
Gronkowski told the newspaper this is something he enjoys doing and he’s glad it’s continued to grow.
“We are here at the pro camp and this is year number five or six and I keep forgetting because it is so many years in a row,” Gronkowski told the newspaper. “Every year it keeps getting bigger and keeps getting better and keeps getting more fun.
“It is just a blast out here throwing passes to the kids. I enjoy doing it, I enjoy throwing passes to all the kids and I’ve got family and Jacoby Brissett Jersey
friends that come out.”
Gronkowski said he’s feeling “great” and all indications seem to point to the veteran making a big return in 2017.
