Houston Texans rookie Jadeveon Clowney is lucky that football players aren’t judged based on their knowledge of NFL power brokers.
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.”
Clowney had no problem with names like LeBron James, Drake and Tiger Woods, but it seems as though he’ll have to brush up on his football knowledge before the season starts.
