So is that the case with Cleveland Browns wide receiver Nate Burleson (formerly of the Detroit Lions?
"Man, I'm wracking my brain figuring out what celebration I'm going to do -- because I'm going to get a fine," Burleson said. "I'm going to get a fine, period. I'm going to go to my coach and say, 'Hey, I'm going to get a fine. I'm going to do something crazy.'
Sounds like he has a little angst, huh? Actually--he doesn't:
"It's going to be a little bit of an appreciation celebration to the fans and the city of Detroit...."
Well isn't that special? It's good to see he understands that the business side of things---but it doesn't mean he has to like it:
"...But it's also going to be a poke in the back, saying, 'You should have kept me because I'm still balling.'"
Hopefully the injury prone veteran will be healthy come August 9 when the two teams open preseason play.
