Look, Alabama, we aren't out to get Julio Jones. To those of you freaking out over the earlier story about his 15-18 different suits, just relax. We totally figure his family sprung for the new threads on a weekly basis. It's all good. No hard feelings. Now we move on to this guy's brand new 2011 Porsche Panamera. Um, those wheels sell for between $75k and $135k. Looks like someone didn't listen to Herm Edwards. JUMP!
While the NFL and players continue to dick around with their labor agreement, we found some photos of actual NFL players in uniform from today. Are they getting ready to play some ball? Of course not! They're just shooting a commercial for Verizon, but it's your very first look at J.J. Watt in a Texans jersey and Mark Sanchez ready to go 6-for-23. JUMP!
Imagine out shock today when a tipster (Ryan in Portland) sent us an eBay auction and it was for an Aston Martin supposedly belonging to Arizona Cardinals QB Derek Anderson. Our initial reaction was, "That's impossible. The guy has to drive a Ford F-450." But it's true, Horseballs is unloading this sick ride for a Buy It Now of $73,500. Still efforting if this is a cash play or if he's upgrading from the 2007 model. Details - JUMP!
Minnesota Vikings punter -- that's right, punter -- Chris Kluwe is naming names... or naming douchebags, anyway. If a new collective bargaining agreement isn't finished stat, he's going to meet you on the playground after school, Peyton Manning. Kluwe, known for his ambitious tweets, doesn't pull any punches with his latest piece of work. The Tweets...JUMP!
Green Bay Packers cornerback Sam Shields is letting everybody know who won Super Bowl XLV by tattooing a giant pic of his ring right where everyone can see it. Should give receivers something to think about this season. The year of giant tats that some of these guys will eventually regret later in life rolls along with this beauty. JUMP!
Just minutes ago, through our vast Rolodex of NFL contacts, we got off the phone with Carolina Panthers tight end Jeremy Shockey who was busting it back to Miami from a Keys diving trip to pack his bags and prepare for the end of the NFL lockout. "The deal will be done Thursday and we're being told to report to Charlotte for a three-day camp the 22nd through 25th," Shockey said sounding like he was ready to hit someone. More details - JUMP!
Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler is not a smart man. Here's more proof -- he sports the same facial expression no matter what he's doing. Is it confusion, stupidity, indifference? Who knows. At least he has a hot girlfriend in a bikini to distract us from it. Seriously, the guy can't even sit at the Raleigh in Miami and drink booze without making a stupid face. At least Eli has an excuse. JUMP!
Busted Coverage 5 Questions Editor Joe Student emailed headquarters earlier this week to know if he should take an interview with Houston Texans stud RB Arian Foster. We get these opportunities quite often and most athletes are completely boring. Not Foster. He opens up on the NCAA about its stupid rules and who on the Texans is getting fat during this lockout. Here are questions the Houston Chronicle won't ask Arian. JUMP!
Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker James Harrison sat down for an interview recently with Men's Journal and also posed for the lead photo with two handguns. Dude went nuclear on Roger Goodell, teammates, other NFLers and society. But there is a perfectly good reason for all of this. "I was misquoted," says Harrison. Uh, huh. The Steelers LB took a grenade for his boys in the NFL and now it's time for some backtracking! Details - JUMP!
We had all but forgotten about Allen Aldridge until today when we were up to our normal Google searches for NFLers & NBAers selling houses. Aldridge was a Super Bowl champion with the Denver Broncos and made $3,000,000+ in his final year (2001) with the Detroit Lions. Not exactly a household name these days, imagine our shock when we found out this is what the ex-linebacker is trying to sell. Um, looks like somebody was smart with his NFL cash. JUMP!
Joe Flacco, as we told you a couple weeks ago, got hitched this summer and there was a wedding photo embargo that was officially pulled today. Not content with the typical wedding party photos, Flacco and his bride went whimsy. Busted Coverage Associate Editor Monty isn't buying the act and has had enough of Flacco's New Jersey 'Situation' act. Get ready for Joe to get destroyed and more pics - JUMP!
Brooke Daniels, the former Miss Texas being sued by Dallas Cowboys receiver Roy Williams, has apparently gone from the majors to the minors. Daniels is now dating University of Houston infielder David Murphy and his .241 batting average. Our editors, as BC always does, went the extra mile and dug deep to figure out how a Houston baseball player is hooking up with Roy's ex. Dude goes from the bench to this. JUMP!
Our Austin tipsters pointed us in the direction of Cedric Benson's house last night where there was a huge pool party & chance for ladies to scope out Ced's pad. The bash came complete with a theme name "Top of the World Independence Day Pool Party," an open bar, glow necklaces and a DJ spinning House. A bright spot in all this for Ced, the Bengals & NFL? No DUIs and/or headlines on TMZ! 68 photos from the bash at Ced's - JUMP!
Cincinnati media is going nuts today over the news that Carson Palmer's suburban 5,500 sq. ft. house has sold for $1,915,000. The 5 bed, 5.5 bath house has "Pool, Spa, Golf Green, Pond & Lush landscaping" according to the real estate listing. From what we can see, it's also a pretty boring pad. But this is the sign, for most Bengals backers, that the QB is serious about this plan to never play for the team ever again. The house was bought for $2mm & change in 2003. Pics - JUMP!
Our boy Cam Newton was in Vegas over the weekend for the Warren Moon Sports Dream Foundation Charity reception with other luminaries such as Michael Irving, Jerry Rice, Ray Lewis, Too Tall Jones, Eric Dickerson, etc. But the big news for Busted Coverage was that our future meal ticket (in case you didn't hear, we own his BCS pants - value skyrocketing!) was having some bro time with his big brother Cecil Newton Jr. at the craps table. Go crazy, SEC Nation!
It's the summer of wedding gift registries around here. First it was our purchase of a knife sharpener for Tony Romo's nuptials, then a $25 napkin for Kim Kardashian-Kris Humphries and now a $5 Lenox napkin for Ben Roethlisberger's wedding. The big news, right now, surrounding the Roethlisberger ceremony has to be the nearly $5,000 in gifts THAT HAVEN'T been bought for the Steelers multi-millionaire QB and his fiance Ashley Harlan.
