Instagram isn’t just a fad. NFL players have taken to the social media tool, posting photos of their off-the-field exploits and hobbies during their downtime. So we here at FOXSports.com present our Instagram Power Rankings, where we count down the top 10 images from the previous week. Let’s get to work. — Sid Saraf
The Patriots used their Instagram account to post this pic of their former stud safety teeing off on a football at the Scottish Open. Much like the way he used to tee off on defenseless receivers' heads during his playing days. Oooh, yeah! I went there!
The Ravens' big offensive lineman knows it's all about the mommas. Smart man: "I came to support my mother & the rest of the NFL Mothers @ their event here in Atlantic City."
The Seahawks' safety and the team mascot Blitz are ready to slap a five after some solid glovework. "Me and #Blitz, signature Dap" Wait, #Blitz? Does Seattle's mascot have a Twitter account? Wow, yeah he does.
Sorry, I have a hard time controlling myself around this much cake. Before I try and eat my monitor, let me just say a resounding "thank you" and "I hate you" to the talented cornerback for this visual. "Jordan 12 cake my wife and I had made for @crazysoccerplayer quince"
Ugh. Running the stairs is a killer. But Cooper is running the stairs at his former alma mater in Gainesville. In an environment with probably 100 percent humidity. Guuuh, I can feel my skin melting already. You gotta give the Eagles receiver a lot of credit.
Gaaaah! What in the good lord's name is that?! Believe it, people: This is a new sandwich that the team will be serving to fans who attend training camp. For just $5, you can get "pulled pork, applewood bacon, Mac n cheese and two fried onion rings. #aftc12 #aftcsandwich." So, what is this culinary masterpiece (and abdominal disaster) called? That's up to you. The Falcons are holding a contest for the name.
Remember how Jets coach Rex Ryan was running with the bulls in Pamplona? Well, it turns out that Okung, the Seahawks' dominant offensive lineman, did the exact same thing. On purpose. When there is an entire world full of non-dangerous things to do. Like lounging on a beach. Or chilling in Vegas. "Came, saw, people were gored, and we conquered!" Sigh. Well, to each his own. Thankfully, Russell has this behind him and now can go back to more safe occupations ... like football. Where he can get paid for getting gored on a daily basis.
DeSean Jackson at the Playboy Mansion? Yeah, why not? Oh, Snoop Lion is there with him? Suuuure. I'm not jealous, I swear! I don't care! I'm having a great time! Tonight I might watch TV AND have a glass of wine ... sob, sob.
Gisele Bundchen is looking stunning in her white shirt and fetching shorts. What a wonderful day to be in the sun at Disneyland. Ahhh, the good life. I just wish Tom Brady wasn't there to ruin the picture. Get outta the way!
Well, I get the costumes and it's pretty obvious that Texans star Arian Foster is the one standing on the right. But ... ummm, who is the guy on the left? Give up? None other than Seahawks stud Marshawn "Beast Mode" Lynch. The man who single-handedly won me a fantasy title last season with his epic performance against the Patriots. "No filter, all mustache. Me an my boy @moneylynch24 at this madden shoot. #80s" Epic. For that, Mr. Foster ... you earn the victory for this week.
