Chris Long is many things. Troll is now one of them.
The Eagles defensive lineman recently had some fun on Twitter, with a stream of messages pretending to criticize and demean hockey. In multiple tweets, he acknowledged that plenty of hockey fans may not get the joke.
Which means that maybe Long should have simply relegated his jokes to a burner account.
Damarious Randall has the most retweeted tweet of any NFL Cheap Baseball Jerseys player, ever
“He works out like he’s a first-year, second-year guy,” Drake said. “Comes in with that same attitude. I feel like if I could have just half the success that he’s had, that would be a win in my book. Because he’s definitely the epitome of longevity in this league.”
Gore needs just 76 yards this season to pass Curtis Martin for fourth on the league’s all-time rushing list. And while the 35-year-old has shown he can still be productive, he’ll also have a role helping Drake develop.
It seemed that Drake was on the right path last year. Over the last five weeks of the season, no back in the league had more rushing yards (444) than Drake, though even he noted that players such as Todd Gurley and Kareem Hunt took their foot off the gas late in the year. But it was still an encouraging finish, and helped validate the Dolphins’ decision to trade Jay Ajayi.
“I’ve learned that you definitely can’t take any week for granted,” Drake said. “It’s a one-game season every week. On any given Sunday. You have to be where your feet are. From waking up one morning and you realize you just traded your starting running back [Jay Ajayi] and now you’re going to get a lot more carries. To the next person in front of you [Damien Williams] is injured for the rest of the season. And so now you definitely have to have a lot more of the bulk.
