James Conner read the tweets, everyone. The Pittsburgh Steelers running back has heard all the hate about his injury history and subpar 2019 season, and he's responded by turning himself into a Mr. Olympia candidate. Conner showed off his new ripped physique that should make any poor defensive back unfortunate to try and tackle him in the open field rue the day they picked up a football helmet, and he might have just won the internet for the week.
Looks like Conner might take up Javon Hargarve's spot at nose tackle with that body.
Conner knows that the presence of sledgehammer Benny Snell and big play machine Anthony McFarland, coupled with his impending free agency, means that 2020 will be a pivotal season.
We don't know if it will be successful or not, but no one can accuse Conner of not working hard enough in pursuit of his goals.
Conner is one of the easiest guys in the league to root for given his inspirational story and tireless work ethic. With Ben Roethlisberger back and the Steelers looking to make the playoffs once again, Conner could be in line for the best season of his career.
He certainly looks the part.
