🏈 Tom Brady faced the heat at a star-studded roast hosted by Kevin Hart on Netflix on Sunday night.

 

🏈 Former Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver and Hall of Famer John Stallworth donated a little over $1.2 million to his alma mater Alabama A&M.

The John Stallworth Foundation and the Alabama A&M Foundation have formed a new endowment: The John and Flo Stallworth Endowed Scholarship … and the first gift to the new endowment is $1,214,721.

The news was announced following Stallworth’s commencement address at his old school.

🏈 Roman Wilson and Nick Herbig were teammates at Saint Louis High School in Honolulu, Hawaii. They also grew up playing youth football together.

“We kind of grew up together a little bit,” Wilson said on a conference call with Pittsburgh media. “So, that’s my guy.

“I never thought I would be on the same team as him in the NFL. But as I got closer to the draft day, there were more and more rumblings about it. I could kind of see it happening before it started.”

🏈 Bill Belichick begged Rob Gronkowski to stop doing his job as an analyst on Fox NFL Sunday at the Tom Brady roast event.

🎂 Happy Birthday to Steelers defensive tackle Cam Heyward, born on May 6, 1989 in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
