There wasn't a high bar to clear, but we've found the best quarantine workout, and second place isn't even close. Pittsburgh Steelers RB James Conner is in the wilderness -- where we soon must all retreat -- and doing his best to stay in shape. No, we're not talking planks or pilates. Conner's apocalypse occupation is a lumberjack, and he's just getting some practice in.
First: Why aren't we all in cabins? Conner has the right idea. Instead, I'm trapped in a bunker in this concrete jungle. Germs don't exist don't in nature (I kid)!
If there is an NFL season, expect Conner to be more than prepared. Who needs training camp in Latrobe? Let's jump straight to Week 1. NFL fans have waited long enough, and this former Pitt Panther is ready from the jump.
So far this offseason, Pittsburgh is not just helping Ben Roethlisberger up front, but ideally creating more running lanes for Conner. The additions of Stefen Wisniewski and Derek Watt ought to do just that.
