Jimmy Johnson has him beat. He went on national tv without a shirt on.

Yes. He was the poster boy for their mixable creatine product back in the day and Met-Rx. He was one of thew few football players who set up his lifting routine to match more of a bodybuilding setup. His brother is into bodybuilding as well.


Yeah, Shannon Sharpe is an OG in terms of American athletes that trained for their sport with a bodybuilder mindset.
