The eye has it: Camera captures hilarious moment involving former Wisconsin OL David Edwards
David Edwards thought he was in the clear. He should know now that, in the NFL, the cameras are always rolling.
Edwards, a second-year member of the Los Angeles Rams was enjoying a beverage in a team meeting. And while that may not sound all that entertaining, it did become pretty funny when the former Wisconsin lineman was stirring around the drink and inadvertently got some of the drink in his eye when the straw shot out of his mouth.
But that may not have been the funniest part. After nearly taking a straw to the eye, Edwards looked around the room to see if anyone witnessed the mishap. At first, he thought he got away with it — and then he noticed the camera in the room.
Below is the video, shared by the Los Angeles Rams.

The team is being featured on HBO Sports’ Hard Knocks this year. Obviously, that means the cameras are always on, at least during training camp. Edwards is going to have to be a little more careful with his drink next time, or at least expect a moment like that to be caught on film.
Edwards is entering his second year in the NFL. He was drafted in the fifth round of the 2019 NFL Draft. Last year, he appeared in all 16 games for the Rams, making 10 starts.
