Players Flex, Tweet Offseason Muscles

Yesterday, Redskins safety LaRon Landry (@MrLandry30) wowed Twitterverse with a photo of his arms, allegedly taken following his morning workout and protein regimen.  He tweeted simply, “You can’t build a reputation on what your going to do”… #grindmode.

In the age of Photoshop, it’s easy to tweak a picture, but this somehow seems legitimate.  And hey, if I believe that Byron Westbrook did a Cinnamon and Old Bay Challenge, why shouldn’t I believe that Landry has ginormous arms?  Decide for yourself:

The real story, however, was in the response from his fellow players.  Today, teammates Donte’ Stallworth and Adam Carriker had something to add to the mirror muscle exposé.

First, Stallworth (@DonteStallworth) shared a workout photo of himself with Ravens linebacker Brendan Ayenbadejo at the gym.  His accompanying tweet said, “There is no ‘off season’ in my vocabulary“:

As one of the brightest people on the team, I find it hard to believe that it’s ‘not in his vocabulary,’ but the point remains: Stallworth is sweating out his Redskins Spandex.

Meanwhile, somewhere in Colorado, Redskins strong man Adam Carriker (@BigPoppaPump94) was not impressed by the physiques being tweeted his way.  So he fired off a picture of his own, saying, “Look, I can put on a tight shirt and look really jacked too! LOL!“:

Wow.  I’m not sure whose shirt that is, but it’s a solid four sizes too small.  This photo is now Carriker’s default Twitter picture, and he described his social media movement as “#Laroning.”

Good to see the players working hard already this offseason, as Twitter seems to be inspiring people to hit the gym.

  1. You know brian, it’s not LANDRY’s arms that concern me. And it shouldn’t be his either. He’s not going to wrap anyone up if his wheels fall off.


  2. Does anyone remember the promising Chargers receiver who litterally weight lifted hisself out of the league? Landry should be more concerned about where he’s going to play next year as well as improving his Achilles and hamstrings… And his awful technique. Stop tweeting photos of yourself …. That’s something for high schoolers and rookies … Not NFL superstars…


  3. PBrook…David Boston.

    I agree with the others…you never cease to impress me, LaRon, but get that Achilles taken care of.

    When he’s on the field, his mere presence makes a huge difference for us, but that’s the key…staying on the field. If he can stay healthy, he WILL be the top safety in the NFL with Ronnie Lott-like impact.
