Irrelevant Week Tim Toone, Mr. Irrelevant 2010, receives a new puppy.

Every year, since 1976, Newport Beach resident Paul Salata, along with his daughter Melanie Fitch throw a party for the NFL's very last draft pick. They fly the newly-signed player out to Newport, dub him "Mr. Irrelevant," shower him with gifts, and even take him out to Disneyland. Off-Ramp's Kevin Ferguson talked to Melanie Fitch and Detroit Lion's newest Wide Receiver Tim Toone (Mr. Irrelevant himself) about Irrelevant Week, which just wrapped up Friday.
