    I sure hope he stays in shape. If anyone from our squad got hurt in training camp (knock on wood), he'd be the first WR i'd want them to call.

    And the best part is, when he is talking, you can hit the "MUTE" button on the remote control.

    My sourses have reveales what killed the Tennessee deal was that the NFL would not let Keyshawn replace his last name on the back of his jersey with "He love me".

    Unknown yet. He does have a superbowl championship ring.

    By all accounts he was less and less 'Meshawn' and more a team player and leader in his years after Tampa.
