This is by far the best image to come out of the NFL lockout

It’s easy to think of the NFL lockout as billionaires squabbling with millionaires, but the truth of the matter is that many NFL players are fringe players who depend quite a bit on their annual salary. Carlton Mitchell, a 6th round draft pick by the Cleveland Browns in 2010, is one of those players. In his rookie year, the receiver dressed for only five games and his entire 2010 stats were as follows: one rushing attempt for nine yards.  So as you can probably guess, the lockout kind of hurts Mitchell a bit.

But at least Mitchell still has his sense of humor. He recently posted this image as his Twitter profile picture.


Even though he looks like he’s gunning hard for a Nike contract (hey, man’s got to eat), I have to say well played, Carlton. Well played indeed.
