Yes, we've all heard the stories about football players taking ballet classes to improve their agility. We've seen the funny, faintly sweet images of 350-pound dudes stretching their massive legs on straining barres. We've chuckled, shaken our heads, and thought, Bless their hearts.
But a football player moonlighting as a member of his own squad's dance team? And legitimately dominating the choreo, which is significantly more advanced than your average touchdown celebration? That's a new one.
