PHILADELPHIA (AP) — The Philadelphia Flyers have introduced an odd-looking new team mascot — a 7-foot fuzzy creature named Gritty with a wild O. J. Simpson Jersey , orange beard.
The character’s debut triggered an outpouring of comments online, including “Good luck sleeping tonight, Flyers fans” and comparisons to ZZ Top and the Muppets. Twitter users created memes with Gritty taking the place of horror-movie villains and splicing his head onto other disturbing images.
The cross-state rival Pittsburgh Penguins tweeted, “lol ok” — to which Gritty responded Patrick Willis Jersey , “Sleep with one eye open tonight, bird.”
The reaction seemed to be exactly what the Flyers were going for. Gritty’s final tweet of the day included the message, “Goodnight, internet Markus Granlund Jersey ,” and a photo of the crazed-looking mascot squeezing what looked to be Champagne out of a squirt bottle.
The Detroit Lions bolstered their linebacker group with Christian Jones and Devon Kennard, and their offensive line with Kenny Wiggins.
Detroit signed the trio of unrestricted free agents on Thursday.
Jones and Kennard were starters for the Chicago Bears and New York Giants, respectively, in parts of four seasons. Jones had a career-high 84 tackles last season in Chicago and matched career highs with two sacks Roman Josi Jersey , a forced fumble and a recovered fumble. Kennard had four sacks last season with the Giants and 9陆 sacks in his career.
Wiggins started every game at guard for the Chargers last season, helping them give up an NFL-low 18 sacks and lead the league in yards passing. He has started 25 of 45 games in his career with the Chargers and San Francisco.
The Lions made a major move on the first day of free agency, releasing tight end Eric Ebron. The 2014 first-round pick would have earned $8.25 million this season if he was on the roster past 4 p.m. Wednesday.
