When you consider NFL players have the ability to make some of the most absurd athletic feats on the planet look impossibly routine, it can be easy to forget just how freakishly talented the guys who get paid to step onto the gridiron every week really are.

If you’re watching the game from your couch, it can also be hard to appreciate just how massive some football players are. Sure, it’s one thing to see a graphic about an offensive lineman listed at 6’6″ and 368 pounds pop up at the beginning of a contest, but it’s difficult to fathom just how imposing some dudes can be until you find yourself in their presence.

There are certain names that come to mind when it comes to the NFL players who are jacked to a point where you can’t help but think to yourself, “Man, that’s just unfair.” DK Metcalf might be the best example, but guys like Jadeveon Clowney and Chase Young have also managed to turn plenty of heads thanks to their laughably muscular physiques.

Cleveland Browns defensive end Myles Garrett is also part of that club. During Sunday’s contest against the Vikings, he decided to show off the guns he carries around with him at all times by declining to don the long-sleeve shirt he usually wears under his uniform—a decision he thinks may have caught the eye of NFL officials.

On Monday, Garrett revealed he was hit with a drug test following the contest and suggested the uncovered tree trunks attached to his torso may have been the catalyst for the allegedly random screening.

Who among us can’t relate to that?
