This year’s Cover Interview Revealed

In case you haven’t had a chance to check the previous post – and by the way I’m honored so many people were interested and we had almost 100 posts to it — this year’s cover story interview has been revealed: Maurice Jones-Drew.

    I recently finished up a #MFL10 draft that I put together with some of my followers on Twitter, a practice that Tom Brolley, Matt Camp, and I will be continuing throughout the summer with our friends at MyFantasyLeague.
