Tis the season to be linemen, fa la la la la, la la la la.
The Ravens offensive blockers got hooked up this holiday season by their quarterback and running back.
This week, Leach tweeted about a gift he got from
Feeling the Christmas spirit came into locker room and this was in my locker and oline lockers.Thanks Flacco lockerz.com/s/270435703— VontaLeach44 (@vleach44) December 20, 2012
Rice spent some time trying to think of the perfect gift.
“I know everybody has a TV, but I had to get them something called a Smart TV,” he said. “They could have the internet and all that stuff. I try to keep up with technology.”
The gift of giving paid off for Joe last week. He was hardly touched by the New York Giants. Is Rice hoping the gifts will pay dividends for him too with some sweet run blocking?
Nah, Rice said he already ordered the TVs before he topped 1,000 rushing yards and was named to the Pro Bowl. The fact that the awards came this week just made it sweeter.
“I’m sitting here getting all these accolades. Those guys, they don’t live by accolades. They live by putting their hand in the dirt and going to work,” Rice said.
“There’s no price you can put on how much you appreciate the dirty work for you.”
