Rick Smith Isn't The Only Texan Who Is Big On Yoga

It was revealed last week that Rick Smith was a yoga fanatic, but ESPN's Page 2 devoted a whole article to linebacker/special teams ace Kevin Bentley and his devotion to the craft of Bikram Yoga, which, he claims, is the reason why he's been able to stay so healthy over the course of his career.

"Bro, do I look tough?" the 6-foot, 247-pounder said. "I'm not all about toughness. It's about staying healthy, and doing what's best for my body. At first, I took a lot of heat because guys were like, 'Oh man, look at you. You're in tights!' Guys would come in and peek their head in and mess with me."

"Kevin's real meticulous in taking care of his body," Texans linebacker Brian Cushing said. "He's real careful, and he's real thorough in everything he does. I think that's the reason he's going in, what, his ninth year and still playing the way he is."

It's certainly an interesting idea for the health-conscious football player. Perhaps Antwaun Molden could be persuaded to give it a try?
