GINO GRADKOWSKI RUMORS

Yanda: Zuttah “leads by example,” Wagner “can be a starter for us”

Joe Flacco Joined by Ed Dickson and Gino Gradkowski in Pledge to End Use of 'R' Word

Baltimore Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco is still trying to make amends for one heck of a PR flap that he made prior to the Super Bowl. During one of the media sessions he referred to the idea of playing the Super Bowl in a cold-weather climate as 'retarded.' Flacco got ripped for using the word like he did, and righteously so.
