Green Bay Packers tight end D.J. Williams may have the most unusual offseason work out routine of any football player ever. Believe it or not, he says that he wrestles cows to stay in shape during the offseason.
“I wrestle cows every day,” Williams said. “Back home in Arkansas, we don’t have anything else to do.”
Williams said that having roommates that were from the country got him into cow wrestling.
“I just roomed with a whole bunch of country people in college. Nothing else to do,” Williams said, before adding that cow-wrestling is a great way to woo members of the opposite sex.
“It’s very impressive. Usually, you say, ‘Let’s go cow tipping’ and they feel it’s a good rush when the cows start chasing you and stuff. They think it’s to impress them, but I’m really working on my football stuff at the same time. Two birds, one stone.”
I guess a player has to do what a player has to do in order to be the best they can be in a competitive sport like football.
