Le’Veon Bell has numerous tattoos including two scriptures. He has Jeremiah 1:5 ( Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart; I appointed you as a prophet to the nations) on his left arm with a picture of his mother embracing him after Michigan State suffered a loss in the Big Ten Championship. Bell also has John 3:16 on his left arm, along with “That whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life” per Wiki
Antonio Brown was so thin in high school they called him “boney Tony” – – All four of Antonio’s children have the initials, AB.(Antonio Brown Jr., Autonomy Brown, and Ali Brown, as well as a daughter, Antanyiah Brown)
This year as most know he could be the first WR to 5 consecutive 100 reception seasons. Wouldn’t it be great if he could do it on a team first to 7 SB wins? I dare to dream.
Speaking of tats
Martavis Bryant has tat of an NFL shield logo on his abdomen to remind him he was drafted in the 4th round and for personal motivation.You have to wonder where the pot leaf insignia is hidden.
Speaking of homegrown, what?
1979 Steelers were the first team to be entirely home grown. Every player on the Steelers’ roster was either drafted by thesteelers-football Steelers or was signed as an undrafted free agent. That means that not a single player on the Steelers’ roster that year had worn another NFL uniform in their career leading up to 1979…per popularPittsburgh.com
