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?
