ESPN analyst Kirk Herbstreit is synonymous with the company. The longtime college football analyst delivered the unfortunate news through his Twitter account on Monday.

The 52-year-old announced that he has a blood clot, meaning he won't be able to attend the NFL draft. Herbstreit has been a mainstay of ESPN's draft coverage over the years. Herbstreit vowed to return to the draft next year.

Hopefully, Herbstreit can overcome this medical issue sooner rather than later. The longtime analyst signed a deal this offseason to join Al Michaels as the new Thursday Night Football broadcast team for Amazon. Big things lay ahead for Herbstreit in the NFL.

Tom Brady has made NFL history on more occasions than we can remember at this point. One of his history-making moments came against the Carolina Panthers last season when he threw an NFL record 624th career passing touchdown.

Mike Evans gave the ball to a fan in the stands, Janice Green, who owned a piece of history. However, after Brady announced his return from retirement, the ball lost a lot of its value.

Green took the ball to Heritage Auctions in Dallas on Saturday to put the ball up for auction. As much as she'll miss having the football, it's likely to net her a pretty penny in return on the auction market.
