The folks at EA Sports Madden ’12 went nuts this week setting up a legit football field (field turf!) in Bryant Park so a few old timers (Jerry Rice, Dan Marino) could play football with/against hot chicks (Chrissy Teigen, Maria Menounos). What went down during the game? Scouts tell us that Teigen showed great hands and Menounos went 10-for-17 with 145 yards passing. The numbers and skills helped both land free agent deals with the Buccaneers.
In other news, the Buccaneers today made this move.
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have agreed to terms on a six-year, $19.5 million contract with former Atlanta punter Michael Koenen. Tampa Bay coach Raheem Morris confirmed the deal after the Bucs’ first training camp workout Friday, a 90-minute walkthrough session.
Said Koenen, “Suckers!”
Somewhere there’s an NFL rookie who wants to kick Michael’s ass. Badly.
