The summer of Antonio Brown continues and I’m not ashamed to say that I can’t get enough. ESPN’s Morty Ain caught up with the busy receiver during “mango season” to shoot for The Body Issue that will be out on newsstands on July 8th.
Brown describes in his interview how being passed up in the draft by teams because of his size created a strong desire to outwork everyone else and train his way to the top. He notes how his desire to improve his physique started from being scrawny in high school to getting to college and putting on muscle.
He refers to “mango season” as comparing his calf muscles to the shape of ripe mangos. He also notes how apparently mangos are good for the sperm count, as evident by his four children.
The folks over at the Steelers Wire believe that the Steelers got a steal when they drafted linebacker Travis Feeney in the sixth round of the 2016 NFL Draft.
Do you agree? Feeney had an impressive combine performance and has been described as a bit undersized but an athletic freak. He’ll have to work his way up from special teams but outside linebackers taken in the earlier rounds certainly haven’t panned out yet so perhaps Feeney might just work out.
The Steelers got a steal in the sixth round of the 2010 NFL Draft when they took a chance on an undersized receiver out of Central Michigan.
