Dallas Cowboys Sign A Real Sicko. Dez Bryant Exhibits Admirable Restraint By Not Punching Dolphins' GM.

New Hampshire tight end Scott Sicko, who had previously said after not being drafted that he would not pursue a free agent deal and instead just do what most college kids with no job offers do: go to grad school.

Speaking of sickos, Dolphins' GM Jeff Ireland apologized to Oklahoma State/ Dallas Cowboy Dez Bryant for asking in a pre-Draft interview whether Bryant's mother was a prostitute. 

Now, the NFL Draft meat market is not the place for the thin-skinned. Ask Matt Stafford. And I for one think that

when you're looking to drop tens of millions of dollars on a new employee, you should probably try to find out if that

employee has any dangerous or undesirable associates, including family members.

But I have to ask, does Ireland not know that there are these people known as "private investigators" who will, you

know, investigate people's private lives for you? In fact I'm given to believe that NFL teams are already using them to

learn about potential draft picks. What other than a terminal case of Matt Millen's Disease could explain that

particular question?

The best part though may have been Ireland's prepared statement, in which he explained:

“My job is to find out as much information as possible about a player that I’m consider drafting. Sometimes that leads to asking in-depth questions. Having said that, I talked to Dez Bryant and told him I used poor judgment in one of the questions I asked him. I certainly meant no disrespect and apologized to him. "


Riddle me this, Jeff: what is the respectful way to ask a man if his mother is a woman of ill repute? Is there an established prefatory question that allows you to just kind of ease into it? Is it like a courtroom scene, in which you have to first lay an appropriate foundation for the question?

It's like something from The Office with Powerade and cleats.
