A Shirtless Picture of Cris Collinsworth Goes Viral on His Birthday

SJ - January 27, 2022

Long before he entered the broadcast booth and gave us "the slide," Cris Collinsworth played wide receiver in the NFL.  A shirtless picture of him from back in 1981 when he was drafted by the Bengals proves it.

The shirtless picture was shared by Pro Football Focus for his 63rd birthday.  It went completely viral when Collinsworth responded to it by saying, "I need the person who chose this picture to see me in my office immediately."

Collinsworth certainly played in the right era for his build.  It's hard to believe that he would be able to play receiver in today's game with that body.  As long as we get the slide I'm happy!
