Current No. 4 golfer in the world Bubba Watson stopped by a joint practice between the Saints and the Patriots in West Virginia this week, and got to try his hand at besting the New Orleans quarterbacks, as well as coach Sean Payton, in a throwing competition.
Backup quarterback Luke McCown won the contest, but the real fun was seeing how Watson fared, which, turns out, was not so great. Watson only managed to hit one of the targets, but his two points were still better than Saints rookie Garrett Grayson, who managed only one. To rub salt in his wound, Grayson was also beaten by his coach, who also scored two points.
But beating Grayson in the QB competition wasn’t Watson’s best moment at the training camp. No, that would be getting Bill Belichick (and Jerry West) to not only pose for a picture, but smile while he’s at it.
Grayson’s only chance at redemption is now challenging and beating Watson in a longest drive competition. But considering Watson ranked second this season with a 315.3 averaging driving distance, I don’t like his chances.
