In a shocking interview on Friday, former Dallas Cowboy Michael Irvin shared a “shocking” conversation he had during Super Bowl week involving the idea of the Cowboys trading quarterback Dak Prescott for the Patriots Tom Brady. Irvin said, “I am telling you right now, at the Super Bowl in Miami, some very significant people that I had conversations (with were) leaning in that same direction. It was shocking. I had a vodka cranberry in my hand and when they said it to me I put the drink down and said, ‘Let’s talk a little bit more about this.”

In other NFL news, former wide receiver Matthew A. Cherry won an Academy Award for his animated short film “Hair Love” which follows an African American father attempting to style his daughter’s hair for the first time. In accepting his award, Cherry dedicated his Oscar to Kobe Bryant.
