Don’t. Even. Joke. Patriots fans who forgot that Monday was April Fools’ Day might have panicked when their quarterback tweeted that he had decided to retire. The six-time Super Bowl champion has joined Twitter and his first post said simply: “I’m retiring. In my spare time, I’ll be tweeting.” An email from a Twitter spokeswoman confirmed the account, but it also referred to the fact that the tweet came on April Fools’ Day. About an hour later, Brady sent a second tweet that said, “Was this a bad joke?” Brady, 41, is a three-time NFL MVP who has given no indication that he’s slowing down.
Odell Beckham Jr.
Count the wide receiver as among those surprised that he’s now a members of the Browns. At his introduction in Cleveland, Beckham looked at quarterback Baker Mayfield seated to his left, Jarvis Landry to his right and Myles Garrett at the end of the dais.“This can’t be real,” he said, a tuft of bleached blond hair poking out from under his orange cap. Beckham said he initially was shocked by the trade but he has grown to embrace it. “I think I’ve come to grips with everything,” Beckham said. “It’ll be one of the best things that ever happened to me in my life.”
