-- Hey Twitter World, yours truly!!!

O.J. Simpson tweeted out a video of himself explaining his thoughts on Tom Brady’s future on Thursday, saying he thinks the quarterback will return and it will be with the Patriots. 

Simpson doesn’t think other teams will want to sign Brady because he “doesn’t throw the long ball like used to” and Brady could have a “swan song” season with Rob Gronkowski if he comes out of retirement. 

And by the looks of it Simpson definitely was not at the barbershop. 

-- It turns out Kyle Rudolph’s game-worn gloves will be going to charity after all

When someone in the locker room asked Rudolph for his gloves for charity after the Vikings’ win over the Saints on Sunday, he obliged and signed them but then later saw them turn up on eBay. He tweeted his disappointment that a “member of the media” tricked him. 

But luckily, Vikings fan Jason King bought the gloves for $375 and reached out to Rudolph about donating them.

Rudolph directed him to the University of Minnesota Masonic Children's Hospital. 

Rudolph also said he will send King the gloves he plans to wear during the Vikings' NFC divisional playoff matchup against the 49ers.
