$20 Million & a Box of Kneepads
Short-term New Orleans Saints QB Adrian McPherson (2nd Round, Flordia State) is suing the Tennessee Titans because their mascot "T-Rac" (a completely stupid-looking raccoon) hit him with a golf cart at halftime during an August exhibition game. T-Rac was throwing t-shirts and crap into the stands.
McPherson bruised his knee and was immediately cut by the Saints like a recalcitrant ho. Currently in the Arena League with the Austin Wranglers, McPherson is suing for $5 million for negligence and $15 million in punitive damages. McPherson has not thrown a pass for the Wranglers yet.
McPherson is described in Pro Football Weekly as "a very raw prospect and a long way from asserting himself as a productive passer."
No word yet on whether the Austin Wranglers mascot, Blaze, will be authorized to "clown" McPherson.
