Growing up in Malden, Mass., Breno Giacomini rooted for Drew Bledsoe and the New England Patriots.
But, the recently acquired New York Jets tackle told reporters on a conference call Friday, those days are long gone.
Giacomini vowed to “bring a little nastiness” to the Jets’ offensive line, particularly when playing against his hometown team.
“Maybe after the game will be a lot better,” Giacomini said, according to NJ.com. “I can tell my friends and family that are all Patriots fans to go kick some rocks. It’ll definitely be fun after we win.”
Giacomini starred at Malden High School before playing his college ball at Louisville. He’s played with the Green Bay Packers and Seattle Seahawks since entering the NFL in 2008, winning the Super Bowl with Seattle last season.
