‘Dead-Man-Suit 2011 Award’ Is Ready And Waiting

Posted by Brian Tinsman on August 23, 2011 – 5:04 pm

In anticipation of tomorrow’s “Welcome Home Luncheon,” many players have gone out and rented or bought top-notch suits for the festivities.

But not everyone is a snappy fashionista.

Inside linebacker Rocky McIntosh wanted to remind me that he will be giving out the annual award to the worst-dressed teammate.  The ‘Dead-Man-Suit award,’ as he calls it, is a tradition that he’s carrying into at least its fifth year, with the help of teammates LaRon Landry and others.

He describes the award as: “It’s given to the player who wears a ugly 1960s suit that looks like they stole it from a body at the graveyard.  I have prizes and awards for whoever ‘wins’ this year.”

I’m no judge, but here are some interesting choices from last year.  First, defensive back Kevin Barnes:

I’m excited to see what walks through the luncheon doors tomorrow.

    thats what i like to see, it makes the players seem more approachable and down to earth instead of whats perceived on TV. not that im saying nfl players get a bad rap, im just saying this kind of stuff is funny and makes football appear less serious. what a great idea for an award.
