"Hey, did you hear about [insert player on your favorite NFL team here]?"
If a friend or coworker comes up to you and asks you that question in early June, what's your immediate reaction? Where does your mind go when an NFL player is mentioned when there are six weeks before training camp and three months until meaningful games?
For me, my mind goes directly to one of two places, neither of which are good:
- Oh crap, did he get hurt?
- Oh crap, did he get into trouble with the law?
