Sure, we all do (don’t we?), but we also need to be aware of the potential drawbacks.
It’s true: As an NFL player you may get all the fancy ladies, and the clothes, and the free creams and lotions — but you could also end up with a finger like the Jags’ Torry Holt up there (It looks like that permanently, Frumpsters).
Yeah, so for all of you out there thinking about trying out at your favorite franchise’s mini-camp this weekend — and I know there’s at least handful of ya — consider this your public service announcement for the day foreseeable future.
Rumor has it that during Holt’s days at N.C. State he used to tie one arm behind his back during receiving drills. That may or may not help explain things.
Either way, I’m adding this revelation to an already long list of reasons why I haven’t made a living catching a lot of balls. Make the jump for a clip of Torry discussing his “trophy” of a finger at a recent Jaguars press conference.
