NEW YORK

The NFL lockout has lasted more than 100 days, and according to Giants offensive tackle Shawn Andrews' Twitter account, he has mostly spent it eating, The Wall Street Journal reported Wednesday.

NFL LOCKUP

Which NFL players were arrested during the offseason?

Last Tuesday, Andrews wrote, "Those Cinnamon Butter & Biscuits From Texas Roadhouse are Wayy Better Than Martin's My Mama Biscuits."

On Wednesday he posted, "This Shrimp Quesadilla Tastes Like Butter Baby!!!!"

Then later Wednesday he added, "Gourmet Key Lime White Chocolate Cookies Will Change Your Outlook On Life!!!!"

Steelers receiver Hines Ward has used the free time from the lockout to learn how to ballroom dance. The Bengals' Chad Ochocinco tried out for a Major League Soccer team, and Ravens safety Tom Zbikowski boxed professionally in Atlantic City.

For Andrews, the former Pro-Bowler who once tipped the scales at 403 pounds (183kg), it is all about food.

"CANT WAIT TIL DINNER!!!! Dunnow yet what it will be but I bet u it's Tasty!!!" he posted. "Shawngry Shawngry Hippo!!" was another offering.

The 28-year-old has coined a few new words as well, like "Fomage," which is homage paid to a meal; and "foodspiration," or what he calls all those people who tweet him saying they have gained 10 pounds (4.5kg) reading his feed.
