Soooo…this is pretty weird.
Apparently, Giants punter Steve Weatherford is one of the most ripped players in the entire NFL. To prove this, ESPN writer Rick Reilly profiled him during a Monday Night Countdown segment last night and even offered to allow Weatherford to bench press him to illustrate how strong the punter is. And things got a little awkward after that.
Weatherford was able to bench Reilly. But because Reilly is a person and not a barbell, Weatherford struggled to keep him balanced. So after benching him, he dropped Reilly and sent him crashing down to the ground.
Watch the video above to see a clip from the segment. This is why you should not bench press people, guys.
