We all know that NFL players are not regular people like you and me. The are famous, make a ton of money, and get to play a game for a living. Oh, and they’re built a little differently too. Aside from that one guy at the gym who looks like he never leaves the gym, most of us don’t bench press 400-500 pounds.
The guys playing in the NFL are athletic freaks. They’re bigger, faster, and stronger than anyone else in the world. But even in the NFL there’s a different class of guys. You’ve seen them, the guys whose biceps look like they’ve been photoshopped, or the guy whose legs are so big they could crush a watermelon between their thighs.
This list is about those guys; the guys who look like a protein shake come to life. These are players who could very easily transition into professional bodybuilding if the couldn’t play in the NFL anymore.
Take a look at this list and see who the NFL’s current Mr. Olympia candidates are. Make sure you make it all the way to the end as we’ve added a bonus of ripped players from decades past.
