I love confidence from an offensive lineman, and today Andrew Whitworth the veteran and savvy offensive tackle of the Cincinnati Bengals sent a message to his management. The message was very clear, draft someone to replace me and he will be just sitting on the bench.
“I’ve always had the opposite mentality,” Whitworth said, per the Cincinnati Enquirer. “Mess up and draft somebody at my position because you are going to sit around and watch him sit the bench. That’s always been my mentality. I see it as a challenge.”
“Right now, this is the strongest I’ve been in my life, most conditioned I’ve been in my life,” the 6-foot-7, 330-pounder said. “I don’t see the door that’s closing. This is the strongest I’ve ever lifted in my career. I feel like I’m as fast or faster than I’ve ever been in my life. I’m in the best shape ever.”
