So, during the HBO Real Sports episode I mentioned earlier, news broke that former LSU DB Patrick Peterson was shopped to Texas A&M by Willie Lyles. He told the Aggies that they had to "beat" $80k to land Peterson. Obviously, they didn't. Texas A&M claims they don't pay for players, well, anymore (cough, Gold Trans Am, cough). Many different interested parties were unable to comment on the story. Peterson's father was "shocked" but able to say something about Lyles: "these guys try to make money on their own, they are kind of like escort services. That's what I call them, escort services."
