Ex-Patriots Safety: Players ‘get Dead Drunk' Before Pro Bowl

Brandon Meriweather's five fines and two suspensions were enough to paint a pretty clear picture that he took some shots during his NFL career. 

But what does a hard-hitting safety do at the Pro Bowl, where defense is non-existent and hard-hitting is discouraged? Take the other kind of shots. Apparently like everybody else.

Making his weekly appearance on Toucher & Rich Wednesday, the former Patriots, Bears, Redskins and Giants safety said he learned in his two Pro Bowls that players are fixing to "get dead drunk before" the annual all-star game.  

[CSN NE Editor's note: For those who haven't left the Northeast or don't listen to music, "finna" is a colloquialism meaning "fixing to."]

"I went to [my first Pro Bowl in 2010] and some people were like, ‘Look, man. I'm playing dead serious. I'm finna win this,'" Meriweather said. "And a lot -- most players are like, ‘Man, I'm finna get dead drunk before the game, man.' They ain't playing nothing."
