Leonard Hankerson’s Lifting The Weight

Third-year wide receiver Leonard Hankerson has a lot carrying in his ridiculously large hands this season.

Already physically opposing to most cornerbacks who line up against him, Hankerson’s third season could be the crossroads of his young career. On one hands, Hankerson’s already provided flashes of greatness in his 20 career NFL appearance with 706 yards and three touchdowns, to include two against the Browns in Week 15. Conversely though, he’s been plagued by drops, sometimes in the most untimely moments.

As the wide receiving corps continues to be inflated with talented weapons in a robust offense, Hankerson hopes to grab the competition like a 10-pound dumbbell.

Of course his gargantuan hands that could wrap around all of FedExField give him a palm up on the competition, but they also allow him to lift an absurd amount of weight that guys like me and you would gawk at.

As seen courtesy of his Instagram account (HankTime85), he’s not ready to lay down for the competition—unless he needs a spotter.

Don’t worry—he won’t be the next Brian Orakpo anytime soon. He did still focus on catching that oblong thing called a football.
