There've been some questions swirling as to whether the Pittsburgh Steelers are going to commit a future to running back James Conner, who is entering the final year of his rookie contract.
Well, it's come to our attention that Conner is aware of such buzz, and is working his hardest to persuade Pittsburgh to give him an extension. The 25-year-old stud shared a post-workout photo on his Instagram story, and to say that he looks jacked would be an understatement.
If the NFL season started tomorrow, Conner would be ready to go, and that's not hyperbole.
The 2018 Pro Bowler is coming off a down year that was hampered by knee, shoulder and thigh injuries that forced him to miss six contests. Across 10 starts, he totaled 715 yards from scrimmage and seven touchdowns. That wasn't the jump the Steelers were expecting the former third-round pick after a 1,470-yard and 13-score campaign the season prior.
However, you won't find us betting against Conner having a bounce back year in 2020. After all, we're talking about a player who overcame cancer in college to be able to realize his NFL dream. This workout photo just further proves that his passion and work ethic are indomitable.
