I hate the phrase "hump day."
Here are the things you need to know today that I give a shit about -
Laurent Duvernay-Tardiff is finishing his medical degree and wants "m.D." on the back of his jersey.
Kansas City Chiefs guard Laurent Duvernay-Tardiff is finishing his medical degree this offseason, and wants "M.D." on the back of his jersey. This would make him the only player in the NFL to be a medical doctor (obviously).
First of all, I have watched every episode of Grey's Anatomy and therefore consider myself a medical doctor, but I couldn't complete medical school if I was actually in medical school and doing nothing else - this dude is completing med school while playing in the NFL? Put the damn letters on his jersey - his name is long enough, what's 2 more letters?
Bucs release Doug Martin.
After heading to two Pro Bowls, but failing to rush for over 500 yards in the past 4 out of 5 seasons (not great!), the Tampa Bay Buccaneers are releasing running back Doug Martin. Martin should have interest in free agency, but many running back-desperate teams will most likely opt for a younger guy if they're smart.
On top of probably fucking up at least one of your fantasy teams in the past few years, Martin's accomplishments have been out-shined by his idiotic mistakes - like getting suspended for PEDs (that obviously didn't work) while battling for a playoff spot.
Jay-Z spent an outrageous amount of money on a bar tab this weekend.
I really don't have anything to add other than that it makes me feel better about how much money I spend on dumb shit when I go out (almost never). Thanks for your service, Jay.
Dolphins tag Jarvis Landry.
The Miami Dolphins are placing the ever-popular franchise tag on wide receiver Jarvis Landry, which means he (probably) won't be going to your wide receiver-desperate team. Not going to name any names.
Landry can technically still be traded, but the Dolphins won't be giving one of 2018's top free agents away, and now they can decide where he goes, if he goes anywhere.
In related news, Breshad Perriman makes me cry in the shower.
Read The Buzz like your morning paper but you might need some whiskey in your coffee.
So, every weekday morning I'll posting a few of the things I will care about for the day that usually happened the day before (I wasn't supposed to start doing this til next week but I was bored last night).
If you like it, thats cool. If you hate it, thats cool too.
Go to happy hour today. Byee
