NEW ORLEANS -- It was late in the day on Friday when Houston Texans offensive tackle Duane Brown walked into our makeshift studio with Buffalo Bills wide receiver Stevie Johnson. They both were making the rounds, doing various media appearances. From Brown's twitter account I had seen him make reference to the television show "The Wire," and being obsessed with the show this was atop my list of questions for him.
After we finished rolling, he and Johnson stuck around for about an hour, hanging in our studio, eating some food, watching YouTube prank videos and talking football and TV shows. Brown wanted suggestions on which ones he should be watching, listing The Wire, Deadwood and Mad Men among his favorites. We talked Super Bowl, TV, Twitter and more in our sitdown.
