Rasner was forced to carry quite a few players equipment off of the field, creating this hysterical picture, and I’m sure this is only the beginning. Rasner is an undrafted safety out of Arkansas, so he’s going to be hard pressed to make the team.
The beginning of NFL Training Camps means rookie hazing season, and the Denver Broncos are already in prime form when it comes to making their first-year players look foolish. Here’s a picture of rookie safety Ross Rasner transporting his teammates’ pads and helmets during practice.
Well, uh….we think it’s Rasner. As you can see, it’s pretty hard to tell.
