A little more than two weeks removed from being selected 32nd overall by the Minnesota Vikings in the 2014 NFL Draft, quarterback Teddy Bridgewater dials into “The Rich Eisen Podcast.” The three-year standout Louisville Cardinal talks with Eisen about the draft process, getting acclimated to life as a pro early on, if he expects to be the starter Week 1and more.
Actor and friend of the program Jerry Ferrara then swings by our NFL Media studios to talk about his Giants draft class and a sneaky undrafted free agent signing of the G-Men that he’s pretty stoked about. Ferrara just wrapped up shooting the highly anticipated “Entourage” movie and the film’s set was no stranger to some big-name NFL players who have cameos in the flick, which hits theatres in the summer of 2015. Ferrara tells one story of Russell Wilson’s day on set shooting his scene — one that ended with a star of the movie heading to the hospital with a broken leg as a result. Jerry’s been a busy man of late, training to play Arturo Gatti in an upcoming biopic about the late boxing champion, and he also has “Think Like A Man Too” hitting theatres June 20th. It’s always a fun time when Ferrara stops by, and of course we can’t let him leave without having him weigh in on the Johnny Manziel/Memorial Day Weekend/Las Vegas story — or non-story depending on how you look at it.
The show wraps up with two of the funniest guys in the business, Randy and Jason Sklar of the popular “Sklarbros Country Podcast” join the #REP crew in studio. “The Sklar Bros: What Are We Talking About?” is a newly released comedy special the duo have on Netflix, and the introduction to the special is hosted by none other than Rich Eisen himself, so be sure to check it out and stream it on Netflix. Randy and Jason also share their thoughts on their beloved Rams draft class and if they think 2014 is the year they start to make their move in the highly contested NFC West.
Enjoy, and as always, thanks for downloading!
