Strike a pose.

OK, maybe not if you're NFL tight end Brent Celek, or any other football player on the field marketing or promoting a product during a live game.

Celek, posed in front of television cameras, mimicking the Captain Morgan pose from the famous rum's label and televison ad campaign.

Former Raider Accused of Attacking County Supervisor

Former Oakland Raider player Jeremy Brigham is under investigation by police over a pee-wee football fight that left Alameda County Supervisor Scott Haggerty wearing a neck brace.

The San Francisco Chronicle reports, the scuffle erupted when  accusations that Haggerty - whom ex-NFL tight end had just fired as the assistant coach of his Pleasanton squad of 10- and 11-year-old boys - had leaked plays to an opposing team.
