Jadeveon Clowney Doesn’t Know Roger Goodell By Name Or Face
Jadeveon Clowney, the reigning #1 overall NFL draft pick, may want look over his league handbook just as well as the Houston Texans playbook this year.
The defensive back revealed where his priorities lie during a recent interview where he easily recognized LeBron James and Drake but drew a blank when it came to NFL commissioner Roger Goodell.
Via Fox Sports:
The No. 1 overall draft pick sat down with Bleacher Report’s Adam Lefkoe and played a game in which they held index cards with names on them — mostly of sports and pop culture figures — on their foreheads and gave each other clues as to who the person was.
And the ones that Clowney didn’t know will probably surprise you. For one of Clowney’s cards, Lefkoe gave the clue, “He’s going to fine you when you hit Andrew Luck too hard.”
Clowney’s answer? “Is it the guy over the league? What is his name? I can’t even think of his name.”
The answer is, of course, NFL commissioner Roger Goodell.
But Goodell wasn’t the only football-related name that Clowney didn’t know. He later had to give a clue for New England Patriots head coach Bill Belichick, but when Lefkoe held it up, Clowney looked around and said, “I do not know this guy.”
Score one for those who subscribe to stereotypes against jocks.
