When you're widely considered the greatest of all time - called G.O.A.T. for short - at your position, you could end up with live goats in your office.
That's what happened to Buffalo Bills assistant defensive backs coach Ed Reed, who starred at safety for 12 seasons in the NFL, on Friday. Reed won a Super Bowl, a Defensive Player of the Year and five first-team NFL All-Pro selections in 11 years with the Baltimore Ravens, and he'll likely become the eighth safety to be inducted into the NFL Hall of Fame once he's eligible in 2019.
Pranksters with access to Reed's office congenially took advantage of the label, judging by Reed's Twitter account. We're looking into the perpetrators, mostly to sing their praises (and fashion sense in animals).
Here's Reed's tweet:

How great does a Bills scarf look on a goat? We certainly hope that the goats didn't choose a playbook for breakfast. They'll eat anything.
