-- Tom Brady joined Twitter just this past April and he is already a pro at it. 

On Wednesday, Brady tweeted a picture of himself with his hands up to catch a football, saying, “I know your drafts are coming up so I need to let all of you know I’m a PPR threat now.”

He then followed up asking for no Super Bowl LII jokes at his expense. 

“We’re in the trust tree here, no Super Bowl 52 jokes please,” he posted. 

In that Super Bowl against the Eagles, Brady dropped a pass from Danny Amendola on a trick play. But he definitely scored with these tweets. 

-- Antonio Brown has filed a second grievance against the NFL over his helmet. 

He lost his first grievance over wanting the league to allow him to wear a helmet model discontinued by the manufacturer.

His preferred helmet, a Schutt AiR Advantage, was over 10 years old and was not certified by the national governing body and not approved for use by the NFL.

It is not clear when this second case will be heard or resolved. 

QUOTE OF THE DAY: "Yeah. Like I said, there was inflammation. We got a round of PRP. Never done that before. So that was kind of an interesting process too." -- Chris Sale, on his elbow
