The Most Fun Things You Missed This NFL Offseason
July is boring, so check out these precious moments from football's summer.
The NFL offseason feels endless, and in July, there is never any news. Most training camps are still two weeks away and even coaches are out on vacation. But The Ringer is here to help you out with a list of the most heartwarming, fun and goofy things that have happened this offseason. And since its the NFL, The Ringer cut the list into categories, with a winner in each. Winners are in bold.
Best Budding Friendship:
Sam Darnold & Josh Allen
Saquon Barkley & Baker Mayfield
The entire Tennessee Titans roster
Darnold and Allen became fast friends through the pre-draft exercises and media appearances. So close, that Allen can be seen giving Darnold a wet willy on Instagram.
It was a close call though, since the Titans not only chugged beer at a Nashville Predators game (and left tackle Taylor Lewan chugged beer out of a catfish), but they invented a real-life version of Fortnite at minicamp.
Best TV Show (series)
Von Miller, Von Miller’s Studio 58
JuJu Smith-Schuster, JuJu TV
Jay Cutler, Very Cavallari
Josh Norman, Dancing With the Stars
Mike Renner, The Bachelorette
Cutler became the star of his wife’s reality show. He gives off the “body language, general apathy, and total disinterest that made him unsuccessful in the NFL,” writes The Ringer.
Best Celebrity Crossover Event
Antonio Brown, “God’s Plan” music video cameo
Beckham, hanging out in Cristiano Ronaldo’s Bugatti
Rob Gronkowski, “Gronkowski” nearly winning the Belmont Stakes
Gronkowski (the horse) is now partially owned by Rob, and came in second at the Belmont Stakes. You can see the NFL star rooting hard for his horse-pal in this video.
