Herzlich makes his first NFL interception

Thirty-two teams passed over Mark Herzlich, seven times each, in the NFL Draft. Now that he has a chance to make the Giants as an undrafted free agent, he's doing all he can to prove the other 31 clubs wrong.

The former Boston College linebacker who beat cancer to return to football last season, got his first NFL interception on Monday night in the fourth quarter of the Giants' preseason game against the Bears.

As the Giants were blowing out the Bears on their way to a 41-13 win, Herzlich picked off a Caleb Hanie pass at the Giants 2-yard line.

It was awesome, Herzlich told ESPN. You try to get in the right spot and you get lucky. The quarterback threw it near me. I was just making a play.

Herzlich is hoping to make the Giants roster this season as an undrafted free agent.

I dont think one interception is gonna make a roster spot, Herzlich said. Its an accumulation of everything. You take advantage of your opportunities. Thats what its all about.

Tom Brady’s annual attempt at making the collective testicles of New England draw up into its stomach has succeeded.

Brady posted on Instagram and Facebook a video (see below) of him skiing somewhere that we aren’t. He approaches a decent-sized jump, hits it, appears to stick the landing, blurts, “Whoa…” and then the camera shows an empty ski and a lifeless body. 

Actually, no lifeless body. Watched it a second time. No lifeless body.

Brady has graduated from sliding down waterslides and cliff-diving to this latest offseason effort to make sure everyone still cares about his safety.  

They do.

Next season, Russian Roulette.

If you french fry when you're supposed to pizza, you're gonna have a bad time! Trust me!!!
