Another Brock Lesnar Update...

Postby Canacuna » Sun May 30, 2004 7:58 pm

Ugh... again, I'm scraping at the bottom of the barrell...

Anyway, the Star Tribune has a pretty big update on Brock Lesnar's venture into the NFL. This is merely a small sample - click the link below to take a gander at the entire thing.

StarTribune.com wrote:The workout with NFL teams was rescheduled for June 2, but that was canceled late last week because Lesnar aggravated his groin pull, according to his agent, Ed Hitchcock. Hitchcock said Lesnar probably will work out for teams individually in two or three weeks.

Hitchcock said five teams were committed to attending Lesnar's workout Wednesday: Green Bay, Philadelphia, Kansas City, Dallas and San Francisco. Green Bay, Philadelphia and San Francisco confirmed they were going to attend, Dallas said it doesn't comment on workouts, and Kansas City Vice President of Football Operations Lynn Stiles, whom Hitchcock said he had spoken with, didn't return phone calls.

Lesnar bench-presses 475 pounds, squats 695 pounds and ran a 4.65 40-yard dash in April when he weighed 280, according to Richesson.

Lesnar is a huge huge man but he doesnt really display they attributes of a steroid user. He has always been a thickly built man. There are certainly plenty of wrestlers using steroids but I would be suprised if Brock was one of them.

The main problem with a wrestler playing football is the fact that he is a wrestler....and not a footballer....

His stats are certainly impressive though

I'm pretty sure he was a "real" wrestler in college where they do test for steroids. Though I'm not claiming the WWE tests for 'roids, but I don't think Brock is on them.

Yeah, I think the issue with him will be he's not a football player. He's a big guy, but he has to pick up everything most players learn during college.

It's not inconceivable that somebody picks him up and puts him on their practice team for a year...

i think he might impress because hes got something to prove. Hes never had college+ exp, so right now I think everyone is giving him the slanted eye and hes got nothing to lose right now. However, i dont think he makes it far from the practice sqaud. Someone might just sign him for the intensity and see what happens with him. Right now I don't think he really cares about the money
