During the long NFL season guys will sometimes go a little stir crazy. There may be a need to break up the monotony of the week and the process that takes a team from one week to the next. What they do to break up the monotony is up to them and could be anything. It might be a little change or it might be something completely nuts.It might even be working out on the squat rack in...
In case you haven’t heard, former Charger offensive lineman has been in the news recently. I say former because he retired this off-season after a great career in San Diego, and also because he looks like this now.

For the most part, football players exit the game with more than half their lives ahead of themselves. And while they have put their bodies through hell during their playing days, some attempt to make up for that by creating a healthy post-NFL lifestyle.

Centers don’t get a ton of attention around the NFL, but their importance to team success is relatively big.
