Danny Trevathan has made the headlines many times for good reasons, not so good and as at the time of writing this piece, just one embarrassing play (reason). The epic day was in a game against the Baltimore Ravens when he was playing for the Denver Broncos in week 1 of the 2013 season, Danny picked off Joe Flacco in the fourth quarter from a beautiful play only for him to drop the ball before the touchline, all in a haste for a stylish touchdown celebration which he regretted just a few seconds later.
