According to San Francisco 49ers offensive tackle Jonathan Martin, he and a friend were shopping at the Beverly Center in Los Angeles on Thursday afternoon when they noticed a shoplifting in progress at a Versace store nearby. And then the 6-foot-5, 312-pounder instinctively jumped into action when he saw a person running out of the store with three purses.

Yahoo!’s Shutdown Corner spoke with Martin and reported:

This is certainly one kind of off-season training.
