Drew Brees Is Now Being Used To Sell Bath Salts (The Kind You Smoke)

This should be obvious, but if you want to sell narcotic bath salts masquerading as aromatherapy powder, there's no better packaging than Drew Brees, photoshopped to make it look like he's wearing Heath Ledger's Joker makeup (we think).

Who Gave The Green Light To Release The Saints' Bounty Tape?

When documentary filmmaker Sean Pamphilon released the Bountygate audio back in early April, was he acting on his own?

New York Jets To Drew Brees: Quit Your Damn Whining Already

It was a dandy of a day for whoever was running the official NFL team Twitter feeds.
