As if Jimmy Garoppolo didn't do enough damage to the pick the Patriots acquired for him, the Pats got more bad news Friday.
With the Raiders and 49ers tied in the standings, a coin toss was determined to see who would pick ninth or 10th overall. The 49ers won, which means they would get the higher first-round pick, but it also meant the Raiders would pick higher in the second round. That means the Raiders will pick 41st, while the Patriots, who own the 49ers' second-rounder from the Garoppolo trade, will pick 43rd.
The Patriots now own picks Nos. 31, 43 and 63 over the first two rounds.
Remember when Brandin Cooks rode Rob Gronkowski around like a horse to celebrate a Patriots touchdown back in November?
Well, Gronk doing Gronk things in Miami managed to find about the only person he could ride.
Shaquille O'Neal, at 7-foot-1, gave 6-7 Gronk a ride on his shoulders as they celebrated the debut of "Shaq's Fun House" as part of the three-day Ultra Music Festival in Miami.
So, who won the dance-off?
Patriots safety Duron Harmon has returned to the U.S. after he was reportedly temporarily detained when he tried to enter Costa Rica with 58 grams of marijuana.
The Costa Rica Star reports that Harmon, 27, was traveling from Fort Lauderdale, Fla., and was temporarily detained Friday night in Costa Rica with the marijuana inside a can of Arizona ice tea, along with three pipes with cannabis oil, THC candy and four glass containers with compressed marijuana weighing a total of 4.3 grams.
"We are aware of the situation involving Duron Harmon Friday night in Costa Rica," the Patriots said in a statement. "He has since returned to the U.S. and we are seeking to gain more information. At this time, we have no further update."
Harmon, who has been with the Patriots his entire five-year NFL career, had four interceptions and 23 tackles last season.
