  1. What was he doing at 4:30 in the AM if he does not have a paper route he should be home

  2. How on Earth have I managed not to get shot all these years? If you’re a professional athlete there must be bullets flying around you constantly.

  3. ESPN Movies presents “Athletes and Bullets” -a biopic of former Bengal Antwan Odom, starring Delroy Lindo as Odom.

  4. This guy, like other NFL players with off -the- field issues has no real understanding of the privilege to play in the NFL. He was blessed to have experienced peoples dreams of being able to play in the NFL. Already trying to bounce back from injuries to play this year, gets himself shot. Now he most likely wont play this year. Probably wont get an opportunity next year either. What a waste of talent. Whether, his fault or not, he shouldn’t have been out at 4:30 am. Trouble is always around the corner at that hour.

  5. ESPN is reporting that Odom was shot during a home invasion. The suspect entered his house at 4:30 a.m. through an unlocked door. Two shots were fired one of which hit Odom in the thigh.

    All joking aside, lets not forget what happened with a previous home invasion (Sean Taylor).

    Get of your moral soap box for a moment & get the facts before you make a tool of yourself.

    Hint: It was a home invasion!

  7. He was in his home when an intruder shot him. He didn’t accidentally shoot himself, nor was he part of a large altercation outside of a strip club, as was widely assumed.

    Reports are still hazy on whether or not he was wearing sweat pants. Stay tuned.

    The hardest I’ve laughed on PFT in a month!

    Thanks!

  9. Well, the racists are out in force today. A guy gets shot by criminals in his own home, and everyone assumes that HE is the criminal. Typical. Reminds me of all the posts on that Josina Anderson thread calling her “dumb”, “affirmative action hire” and all the other code words. Typical. Human nature will never change.

  10. @crenfroe45:

    He was banging his buddy’s girlfriend at 4:30 and got shot. Home invasion my butt…that crap has gotten you shot at since guns were invented.
