Thanks to the convenience of hands-free devices, NFL players have more availability to do radio interviews. (Or you hope they are using hands-free devices.) And this has led to some pretty interesting interviews.
Redskins TE Chris Cooley was pulled over on-the-air during a radio interview in April. But Dolphins WR Davone Bess topped that one on Tuesday.
Bess was doing an interview with the Jorge Sedano Show on 790 The Ticket while on his way to the team’s facility when he witnessed a truck flip over in front of him (via the Miami Herald). Bess cut the interview short, called 911, and remained on the scene until help arrived.
Sedano caught up with Bess after the accident.
“Man, it was crazy. I was on the phone with you and I saw the truck in front of me swerving. Then, he just flipped over three times.
“That’s when I stopped and went to see of he was OK. I saw he got out of the truck and was walking and saw he was cool.
“There were a lot of other people there too to make sure everything was OK.”

- Still bummed that you cannot get more Chad Ochocinco now that his run on Dancing with the Stars has ended? Do not fret. Ochocinco is set to star in the Ultimate Catch — a VH1 reality series where Ochocinco will date 85 women in an attempt to become the NFL’s version of Bret Michaels (via the Cincinnati Enquirer). Does this set up a Celebrity Apprentice appearance next year? We can only hope.
- Speaking of guys from failed VH1 reality shows, Terrell Owens is still looking for a job. Allen Wilson of the Buffalo News wonders why Owens has yet to land with an NFL team. Is it age? Money? Attitude? Can we choose all of the above?
- How will NFL fans remember the trade that sent Brady Quinn to Denver in the years to come? RB Peyton Hillis told the Cleveland Plain Dealer that he would like that trade to be remembered for Hillis going to Cleveland and killing it with the Browns. Browns coach Eric Mangini believes that Hillis’ versatility gives the running back a chance. Of course, fantasy enthusiasts have mixed emotions if Hillis became a touchdown vulture in the same vein as Willis McGahee.
