This week on a special NFL Draft edition of Thursday Night Tailgate our guests are: former Patriots Pro Bowl RB Tony Collins, former Rams DT turned broadcaster Bob Fields, former Chiefs & Falcons WR JJ Birden, former Rams Pro Bowl Guard Kent Hill and former Rams Pro Bowl QB Jim Everett.
Tony Collins - We talked with Tony about his draft day memories plus what it was like showing up at training camp the first time. Did the players, especially the other runningbacks, welcome him or did they view him as the guy drafted to take their jobs?
Bob Fields - Bob is a member of the Board of Directors for the NFL Alumni Association and was an undrafted free agent signed by the Rams. What was the draft process like for him? We'll also talk about what the NFL Alumni Association is doing to help the many former players who are now dealing with long term health issues later in life.
JJ Birden - JJ was an 8th round draft pick by the Cleveland Browns who later cut him. What were his expecations heading into the draft? JJ was also a track star in college at Oregon, making it to the US Olympic trials. We'll get his thoughts on the Olympics later this summer and his thoughts on fellow Oregon Duck Devon Allen who's following in his footsteps.
Kent Hill - Kent was a 1st round draft pick by the Los Angeles Rams in 1979. We'll talk about what draft day was like for him. What was it like going through that day and sitting there waiting for your name to be called? We'll also hear his thougths on the Rams selecting Jared Goff with the #1 selection.
Jim Everett - Now that the Rams are back in LA and drafting #1, we'll hear what Jim thinks about the Rams selection of QB Jared Goff as the 1st overall pick. Plus we'll hear the story about what led the Rams to trade for him after a couple of months after the Houston Oilers selected him in the first round.
This week on a special Happy Birthday to Me episode of Thursday Night Tailgate our guests are: the GM for the Texas franchise in Major League Football Glenn Smith, former Patriots Pro Bowl RB Tony Collins, former Colts LB Jeff Herrod, former Steelers and Falcons DB Randy Fuller and former Chargers, Vikings & Giants DB Vencie Glenn. We'll talk with them about:
Glenn Smith - We'll talk to Glenn about the roster of players he's drafted, his coaching staff, and how his years as an Assistant Coach with the Dallas Cowboys will impact the opportunities his players will have in Dallas.
Tony Collins - Now that Johnny Manziel has been cut, fired by a second agent in the last month and had his endoresement deal with Nike terminated, is that enough to make him see that he has a real problem and he needs help and real change?
Jeff Herrod - Now that the NFL concussion lawsuit has been upheld, what does that mean for the former players who need help now? As a warrior who continues to need multiple surgeries to correct joint and back injuries and a guy who can no longer stand to be in crowds due to sensitivity to light and noise from head injuries, was playing the game worth it?
Randy Fuller - We'll hear Randy's thoughts on playing DB now versus when he played. Have all the rules changes made it nearly impossible to cover WRs? We'll get his insights into the Steelers defense and what they need to do to catch up to the Broncos as the top defense in the league.
Vencie Glenn - Hear Vencie Glenn lay it on the line. We'll get his thoughts on Josh Gordon and Johnny Manziel. What would he tell those guys if they were teammates? As a former Charger, how does he feel about the potential for the Chargers to move to LA and their current stadium situation? What made him one of the smartest DBs in the league according Hall of Fame QB Warren Moon?

Tangible Things will serve as a hybrid cafe, art store and community center.
Pop-up shops were opening in University of Chicago storefronts along 53rd Street,Nancy Jackson and Gwen Pruit swooped into a retail space on the other end of the neighborhood.4856 S. Cottage Grove Ave. The small shop, wedged in between a convenience store and nail salon, grew out of the past experiences and expertise of the two non-profit veterans – Jackson, executive director of youth job training and educational organization Prologue Inc., and Pruitt, a former employee of the Little Black Pearl Art and Design Center.
