Grading the NFL free agent moves so far

There has been a lot of big moves made so far. It's been a busy 24 hours in the NFL, and free agency doesn't even start until 4:00 p.m. ET on Wednesday. Let's assess the early moves.

Another Super Bowl, more things football players never said...



Ummm...yeah don't do this.

But... does it count?


GWS Giants

Hammy goals!

If you want an example of incredible hamstring strength, look no further than Dylan Shiel.

How many of these could you smash out? #ShielStringChallenge



Lu Xiaojun's (-77kg, China) 175kg/385lb sn**ch at 1/33rd speed from two different angles! He is the world record holder with a 176kg sn**ch from two years ago at the 2013 WWC. He's also made 175kg in int'l competition several times now including this lift, the 2014 Asian Games and the 2012 Olympics (a world record at the time). Note that the camera on the right was only shot at 30 frames per second (not fast enough for slow mo) so it will give some weird effects when slowed down this much. 06/26/2015

[03/20/15]   I often get the question, what is the best way for me to loose weight and for the majority of people asking my reply will be simply to eat less and eat better. This is not meant to be condescending in any way. In all seriousness the majority of people take in way more than they need to because they aren't sure exactly how much they need. Your diet should be prioritized over all other forms of weight loss. You can do yoga, crossfit, or run until you pass out, but if you are taking in more than you are putting out it won't do you much good in changing your body composition. 03/13/2015
