NFL GM Calls College Stars Skipping Bowl Games ‘Selfish Pu—-s’
College football bowl season is once again upon us, and that usually means that many college football stars get one last chance to make a good impression on the NFL scouts in hopes of being chosen high in the upcoming 2017 NFL draft.
After watching Notre Dame star Jaylon Smith suffer a brutal injury that saw him plummet in the 2016 Draft, many stars don’t want to risk that same fate.
Star running backs Leonard Fournette and Christian McCaffrey have both already opted out of their bowl games, and at least one NFL executive is not thrilled about their decisions to sit out.
I don’t agree with this, at all, but one assistant GM just said this to me about McCaffrey, Fournette: “They are selfish puss—.”

So I guess this particular NFL executive doesn’t have these guys on their draft board.
