DeMeco Ryans will celebrate his new deal with a little MMA

As we pointed out last month, Texans linebacker Brian Cushing has been spending part of the offseason pushing and hugging and sweating on the likes of Jay Glazer, Chuck Liddell, and Randy Couture.

John McClain of the Houston Chronicle reports that one of Cushing’s defensive teammates will be joining the effort.

Glazer says that Ryans, who recently signed a $48 million contract with $21 million guaranteed, is on his way.  Glazer also has targeted a third Houston defender for the program.

“There’s another Texan I’d love to get out here, Mario Williams,” Glazer told McClain.  “He’s
got as much talent as anybody in the NFL.  He’s so naturally gifted that I
know this workout regime would help him.  If Mario came here, he’d push
himself to levels he doesn’t know he has.”

More and more players are turning to Glazer for offseason training.  “We preach controlled violence,” Glazer said.  “There’s a lot of hand
fighting, chopping.  If you know what you’re doing, your forearms can be
like blades.  We teach where the nerves are, how you can chop somebody,
find the nerve and hyperextend an elbow.”

Why are we suddenly reminded of the scenes in The Longest Yard when the players learn about the potential benefits of plaster casts and brass knuckles?

    I just want to say there is nothing Gay about MMA.
    Sure guys are on top of each other in very sexual positions rubbing their bodies together hands all over each other, sweating on each other.
    Manly yes
    Gay no
    Seriously though MMA training is a great workout. I would like to join my local boxing club and do some MMA training (Just train not fight, I would be on the receiving end of a server ass kicking).

    i’ve never met bigger turds in my life than people that not only watch, but live by MMA. nothing against the sport, no question it can show you how to fight, but the fans you see in bars constantly talk themselves up, and even try to pick fights for the sake of their delusional egos, are absolutely worthy of getting hit by a bus. twice.

    These writers know nothing about that kind of workout. If cushing was taking an intense spin class, you know they wouldnt rag on it.

    It’d be badass if in like 5-10 years, every lineman was a skilled mixed martial artist. With every snap of the ball, a crazy ass MMA style royal rumble would go down. I’d love to see that.

    Mario Williams is a freak beast monster, the likes of which the NFL has never seen. Dude can collapse an entire O-Line from the outside in.
    ?? what were they thinkin not taking Reggie Bush ??

    MMA training is so awsome, even if you don’t want to fight you should take a training session one time and see how much you like tw workout.

    Jay Glazer needs more than an MMA workout, he needs his stomach stapled.

    Really, MMA is kind of gay, and as Detective McGarnacle said, going to an MMA event, or even watching it at a bar is living proof of Darwinism.
    It’s by far the lowest common denominator in the sporting world. And if i get another Ed Hardy wannabe, coming up to me in his skin tight, glittery shirt, talking about his work out routine or the last good fist fight he was in, I might taze him.
    Also, someone should set up some firehoses at the next UFC event. Give the hillbillies a free shower.

    Glazer needs his mouth stapled before his stomach. That way nothing goes in AND nothing comes out.

    It helped Leinart so much that he didn’t come close to competing for the starting spot
    So…it did absolutely nothing
