Lane Johnson Wrestles Bears (But Not Big Ones! Little Ones, Puny Ones) UPDATE!

Apr 25, 2013, 9:22 PM EDT

Most people realized one thing when Lane Johnson appeared on the stage at the NFL Draft at Radio City Musical Hall on Thursday night and opened his mouth: dude has a killer accent. Born in Groveton, Texas, the Philadelphia Eagles newest draft pick has been known to tussle with some bears. But like any intelligent human, he’s not gonna mess with a BIG bear. He just wrestles with little bears — puny bears, if you will.

Wonder if he’s ever killed a hog with a knife?

IMPORTANT UPDATE: Apparently he made the bear tusslin’ story up. So sad. For us and the bears.
