Tom Brady Celebrates #TBT By Proving He Had A Pretty Solid Resume If This Whole Football Thing Didn't Work Out!
In fact, he fell SO FAR in the 2000 NFL Draft that it almost looked like he wasn't going to step on a football field AT ALL!
Well being the smart fellow he is, Tommy boy had a backup plan and a pretty impressive resume inked up! Ya know, just in case this whole football thing didn't work out!
UPDATE! Arizona Cardinals Running Back Jonathan Dwyer Suspected Of Allegedly Assaulting His Wife On TWO Separate Occasions
We reported earlier how Arizona Cardinals running back Jonathan Dwyer had been arrested for domestic violence.
it had been initially reported that he had been charged with aggravated assault, and preventing someone from calling 911.
But it looks like this story somehow is even worse than we first thought.
Now, it's come out that he's suspected of assaulting his wife on not one, but two different occasions.
On top of that, he's been accused off allegedly breaking some bones.
According to law enforcement, the football player allegedly beat his wife in their Phoenix home on July 21st AND July 22nd. Just awful.
In addition, cops say that his wife and their 18-month old child, both listed as victims by authorities, left the state after these two altercations.
This is atrocious. An 18-month old should never be a victim of ANYTHING.
After an investigation, Jonathan is now being charged with 1 count of aggravate assault causing a fracture, 1 count aggravated assault involving a minor, 2 counts of criminal damage, 1 count of preventing the use of a phone in an emergency, and assault.
This is just horrible.

Another case of alleged violence in the NFL! SRSLY?! We've heard enough of this!
Arizona Cardinals running back Jonathan Dwyer was arrested for domestic violence following an alleged physical altercation with his wife in Phoenix.
Allegedly, the football player was arrested on charges of aggravated assault and preventing someone from calling 911. Here's what CBS news tweeted out:
Um, do you know what he did? Why SHOULDN'T he have a punishment that fits the crime, especially if the first punishment was waaaay off?
After video of former Baltimore Raven's player Ray Rice's brutal abuse of his now wife Janay surfaced, everyone pretty much came out against him.
Though now it looks like someone is on his side… even if he sorta does pay them to have his back: the NFL player's union is stepping up for Rice, having already appealed his indefinite suspension.
We hope they feel good about doing this (which is sarcasm, because they shouldn't.).
NFL's Adrian Peterson Is Done! Can't Play For The Vikings Until Legal Issues Resolved! Oh, And Nike Dropped Him Too…
So long, farewell. You done.
The Minnesota Vikings placed Adrian Peterson on the Exempt/Commissioner's Permission list early Wednesday morning.
That means that he can't play football and he actually must "remain away from all team activities."
Why such a serious punishment? Because he's facing a felony child abuse charge and that's a serious deal.
Someone has some strong feelings about this — and she should!
Last week, amidst the Ray Rice scandal, Rihanna's scheduled intro to Thursday Night Football was canceled, for several reasons. They wanted to have a more somber, journalistic approach to the situation, rather than the pop star and Kanye West performing, along with a comedian. Well, that and the fact that RiRi was a part of her own domestic violence scandal.
So, CBS apparently is planning a redux, but Rihanna said, NO! Only in much stronger terms. She tweeted:
This just isn't a strong enough response.
You know, because the NFL apparently doesn't feel too strongly about domestic violence, as we learned with this whole Ray Rice fiasco!
Well, it created a PR nightmare for the beauty company, and they released a statement about their partnership with the league, saying:
