Marshon Lattimore wins 2017 NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year, completing a Saints sweep
Marshon Lattimore was the first cornerback taken off the board in the 2017 NFL draft, and rightfully so. The New Orleans Saints needed a stud defensive back who could bolster their defensive backfield, and the Ohio State product didn’t disappoint in his rookie season.
Lattimore only surrendered a 45.3 passer rating — the third-best rating in the NFL. And none of the receivers who lined up on his side scored touchdowns. Lattimore also made his presence felt in the run game by chipping in with 52 tackles.
He received a Pro Bowl nod for his fantastic rookie season and could transform into one of the best cornerbacks in the NFL for years to come.
Timberlake, 36, is one of the more accomplished singers in American history. In the early stages of his singing career, he was the lead singer in *NSYNC. But he skyrocketed to the top of the music industry after he decided to go solo. Timberlake is a 10-time Grammy Award-winner and a four-time Emmy Award-winner. He has tons of hits, like “Cry me a River”, “Can’t Stop the Feeling!”, and “Rock Your Body.”
It might be a little surprising Timberlake is back at the Super Bowl at all. During the Super Bowl XXXVIII halftime show, he performed “Rock Your Body” with Jackson. While singing the final line of the song, “Bet I’ll have you naked by the end of this song”, Timberlake ripped off a part of Jackson’s outfit, which exposed her nipple.
But that took place years ago, and the NFL has clearly moved on from it. Now, Timberlake can focus on entertaining football fans. His fifth album, Man of the Woods, will be released Feb. 2. He may perform some of those songs during his halftime performance, but you’ll have to watch it to find out.
Undoubtedly there will be at least one special guest on the stage with him, but like with many Super Bowl halftime shows, this one is being kept under wraps until the Big Game to make it as big of a surprise as possible.
