Brady’s theory is simple: There are just too many other entertainment options for today’s consumer.

There’s so much for us to consume, I mean, as we all know, there’s so much happening, Brady said.

The 40-year-old quarterback even admitted that HE doesn’t even pay as much attention to the NFL as he used to.

I hate to say it: I don’t follow it like I used to, because, so many other things to follow, Brady said. And it’s just what can grab your attention, there’s a lot more competition today than there’s ever been, I think, especially with social media, for people to consume information or to consume content. The NFL has had a great product, people love watching the game and I think it’s still doing better than every other program out there, but compared to a time when there was less things to do, it doesn’t live up to those standards.

Maddox recorded eight interceptions over the course of his collegiate career, including a pair during in 2017. During his senior campaign he had a team-high 11 pass breakups and three forced fumbles. He earned All-ACC honors from both the media (second team) and the coaches (third team).

At 5-foot-9, 184 pounds, Maddox is a bit undersized for today’s NFL defensive backs. He makes up for that with his speed, as he recorded a 4.39 40-yard dash time at the NFL Combine.

The comments came in response to an ESPN story published this week in which Dee Haslam is quoted as saying the Browns want a role in the growth of Cleveland. Haslam and her husband, Jimmy, own the team.

Those growth conversations could include discussions on upgrading or replacing First Energy Stadium, the lakefront home of the Browns, the story quotes Haslam as saying.

But no conversations are underway, Mayor Frank Jackson’s administration said in a statement.
