A light moment on a conference call with Tennessee Jerod Mayo today.
Speaking with New England reporters, he stopped answering questions and turned from player to reporter.
"What kind of headlines am I going to get with my last name up there?" he asked. "I've read a lot of them, but what can I expect?"
There was laughter from the reporters assembled.
Asked the best headline he's seen, Mayo said "Hold the Mayo" was No. 1.
"But that's kind of getting played out now, so I'm trying to see what you guys are going to throw at me," he said.
There was silence, and Mayo drew laughter by calling out the reporters for not having an answer.
