Les Snead has "big balls." No really, Atlanta Falcons GM and his former boss and mentor Thomas Dimitroff told him so after Snead lead another furious trading frenzy through the opening night of the NFL Draft.
Peter King recounts the anecdote in his weekly travel journal and coffee diary:
One thing I didn't write that night. Well after the round ended: Snead's mentor, Atlanta GM Thomas Dimitroff, called Snead and said, "You've got big balls."
"I got 'em from you,'' Snead said.
Dimitroff's Falcons haven't been afraid to make big moves, in the draft or free agency. Snead's Rams have done the same over the last two years.
The only question I have: Does Snead have big balls because of his hair or is that just a coincidence?
