    David Johnson is holding out with the Cards right now. Dudes a beast though. Him and Fitzgerald gonna wreck this season. Hopefully they can come to an agreement before the first pre-season game.

    also, Woodley would get shat on in the NFL.

    Wow, surprise, surprise!!!!

    Are you actually going out on a limb and saying an sports industry that pays 100 times what a UFC pays and has a 100 year old established history is going attract higher level talent?

    No way, I don’t believe it.

    Wow, breaking new ground there.

    Amazing post. Keep them coming.

    Wrestling and MMA requires A LOT better coordination than NFL. But yeah, let's compare by watching a clip of a stupid agility drill.

    not even close! Woodley is known to gas in MMA let alone sprinting, Romero is 40+ and doesn't slow down too much after 25 minutes.

    You have never done sports in your life OP. Otherwise you'd know that doing something you're not used to, takes a lot more energy.

    Let's see how a NFL player looks on his first day training MMA.

    This is a completely retarded thread, I can only assume it's satire.

    Now show that guy wrestling woodley or exchanging over hand rights, since you showed that guy doing the only thing he basically does in the NFL.

    That NFL guy couldn't hang with real sprinters so he goes to the NFL :) and NFL guys seem to have the cardio of Roy Nelson left nut.

    Woodley via brutal KO or easy ground and pound KO, NFL guy would look like a D level athlete in a fight.

    In fact id wager of you put this guy with roy Nelson and they trained mma activities , Roy would make this guy look like a D level athelete. Gassed hard 0 explosion left. It's funny when these so called top guys would get destroyed and outworked and outcardioed by a fat beer drinking white man.

    It is almost like you need training to acquire certain skills and coordination.

    Everyone seems to think everything is just intrinsic to being an athlete and that all high level athletics favor the EXACT same attributes.

    See how easy it is ?

    Also, Tyrone, who I don't like at all, would smash this fool in under a minute.

    Different kinds of athleticism. Running and jumping have no real application in a fight.

    While they do those drills more than the average athlete, do you believe that Russell Westbrook would look as Tyron did simply because he's never done cone drills.

    NFL A Level needs to be clarified.

    There are plenty of big guys who were useful for a position on the line of scrimmage. Offensive line are put there because they’re big. Rarely is one of them truly a great athlete.
    A fine running back, on the other hand, is almost always a great athlete with a diverse set of talents.
