With the NFLs current Collective Bargaining Agreement sent to expire Thursday March 3rd and no indication players and owners are any closer to a new agreement, a lockout seems like a reasonable possibility.
That basically means that come July when hockey and basketball are done, instead of thinking about heading down to Foxboro to watch Patriots mini-camps, youll be watching baseball and thinking about how bored you are.
Fear not, citizens! If a lock out does indeed happen and your favorite NFL players are not playing football every week, youll still be able to see them if you look in the right places.
Several players already have agreements in place that would see them either star in movies, promote products they love or just get their face seen around town. We managed to dig up a couple of these potential deals just for you! Enjoy!
Tom Brady has decided to embrace his awful decision and just become an official spokesperson for Uggs.
Since Peyton Manning endorses every product ever made in the history of man, he decided to get his brother in on the fun and the two have agreed to become the new Double Mint Twins.
With Tiger Woods in trouble and quite frankly stinking up any golf course he plays on, EA needed a new face for their successful golf video game so they turned to a man who has plenty of practice not playing important games and working on his golf swing.
Chad Henne looked into his future and decided to get a head start. Hes an awful quarterback.
Ray Lewis agreed to take a part in an upcoming movie if theres a lock out. Thanks to those terrible Old Spice commercials, some Hollywood executives thought hed be perfect as Dr. Dolittle.
Antonio Cromartie has a deal in place with a popular company as a shining example of what happens when you say we dont have to use one this one time! Except he said that about 12 times. Whoops.
Everyones favorite chatty coach Bill Belichick has a potential agreement to be a spokesperson for Dragon Naturally Speaking Software. Should help reporters get easy cliff notes of his press conferences.
Ben Roethlisberger will be. You know what? Hes just too easy.
