Green-Ellis' uncle willing to put 5 million on Patriots

Talk about putting your money where your mouth is.
'Birdman' or 'Birdman aka Baby' -- a rapper and record producer in New Orleans whose real name is Bryan Williams and who happens to be the uncle of Patriots running back BenJarvus Green-Ellis -- took to Twitter earlier this week and offered anyone who was interested a 5 million bet on the Patriots to beat the Giants in the Super Bowl. Ron Borges of the Boston Herald has the details.
Green-Ellis, obviously, declined all comment. But at least some of his teammates were amused by the whole thing.

"Obviously, Benny can't get involved," said offensive tackle Matt Light, "but I hope his uncle takes him out to dinner if we win."
