Follow the Musings of Seasoned NFL Vets and Rookies with Gridiron Grunts
Footballs fans looking for a little bit of insider insight are advised to check out a new Android app called Gridiron Grunts. The app functions as a direct channel between football fans and the very players who take the field each week. A social media “Grunt” is a 45-second audio clip recorded by players which range from rookies to long-time veterans and may cover such topics as weekly updates, pre- and post-game commentary, and more.
Registered users can also set up a private network of friends, send their own Grutns, subscribe to the pro channels, and purchase ringtone downloads. The app is free to download and includes a number of free Grunts to listen to, however in-app billing ranges from 99¢ to $4.99 (all-you-can-eat), depending on what kind of subscription you want.
Players participating in Gridiron Grunts include: Philip Rivers (QB, Chargers), Kyle Orton(QB, Broncos), Chris Johnson (RB, Titans), BJ Raji (DT, Packers), Wes Welker (WR, Patriots), Julio Jones (WR, Falcons), Randall Cobb (WR, Packers) and Jamaal Charles(RB, Chiefs).
