NFL Week 7 Open Thread

Justin Edmonds

Week 7 of the NFL season is here and there are plenty of compelling games to watch.  But before I give you the Week 7 schedule, how about this story?

Earlier in the week, Dallas Cowboys running back Joseph Randle was busted for misdemeanor shoplifting after attempting to get a five-finger discount on...wait for it...a two-pack of underwear and a tester bottle of cologne.  Bummer.  But when you have lemons, make lemonade.  Get a load of this.

In the span of less than a week, Dallas Cowboys running back Joseph Randle has gone from stealing underwear to becoming a spokesman for it.

MeUndies -- a Los Angeles based lifestyle brand that is transforming how people perceive and purchase their underwear -- is now partnering with Randle, according to MeUndies head of marketing and business development, Dan King.

MeUndies will pay Randle enough to help defray the cost of the $29,500 fine the Cowboys imposed on him after he was caught shoplifting last week while also supplying him with enough product that the Cowboys running back will have all the underwear he needs for a long time.

Randle, who also tried to steal cologne at a Dillard's in Frisco, Texas, was charged with a misdemeanor Class B theft of $50 to $500, according to police. He was released on writ bond at 1:20 a.m. Tuesday.

From misdemeanant to underwear spokesman. What a country!
