SJ - April 2, 2022

YouTube star/boxer Jake Paul has his sights set on playing football in the NFL.  On Friday he visited the Cowboys team facility.  The self-proclaimed slot receiver even ran routes and caught passes on the practice field.  I would say this is an April Fools prank if he hadn't already been talking about this.

Whether or not Jake is doing this for attention or not isn't clear.  But he was adamant after the haters responded that he wants to play in the NFL.  He posted his "stats" and reminded everyone of how he was doubted when he wanted to become a boxer.

Don't let Bill Belichick see his stats or this video.  He loves himself some white slot guys.  In all seriousness, Paul might not be good enough for the NFL, but that doesn't mean he couldn't find himself on the field in the FCF or even the XFL or USFL or some other pro league out there.

I wouldn't bet against Jake if he wants to play football professionally.
