Eagles linebacker Mychal Kendricks responds to Rihanna’s stated crush oh him

Jan 6, 2014, 11:55 AM EDT

source:  Apparently a popular trend on the Internet, and more specifically the photo sharing site Instagram, is to overshare with the world and let them know who you have a crush on. On Monday it’s for the men, on Wednesday it’s for the women. Or so the acronyms go anyway.

This is all pretty trivial and stupid and whatever. But then pop star and self-described bad girl Rihanna posts a Man Crush Monday of Philadelphia Eagles linebacker Mychal Kendricks and we’re all a little surprised.

Kendricks proved he’s one of the young players on the Birds’ defense that could be a vital part of the team’s ongoing rebuilding process. But he seems a bit under the radar for someone like Rihanna.

CSNPhilly.com columnist John Gonzalez was in the locker room this morning at the NovaCare Complex and asked Kendricks if he was aware of this somewhat surprising crush.

“Some of the guys told me about it. They were busting my chops a little,” Kendricks said.

He also said he’s never met her before, but would he like to?

“I don’t want to talk about this, y’all,” he said with a smile.

Can’t blame him. #MCM is pretty strange to begin with.

    If she dates someone from the Eagles D at least there’s no chance of her getting hit.

    He shouldn’t even bother. He should know that Chung is going to c-block him.

    Hopefully it goes better than the Cunningham / Whitney Houston debacle.

    You guys can say whatever you want. Mychal Kendricks is Sexyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy! and I do mean sexy hot. This boy could be a rookie college player and it wouldn’t matter. Rihanna needs to go after this one. Who cares if the man is not one of the top teams, he’s cute, sexy, hot and got big muscles along with everything else that looks good on him. Mychal said he wants to meet Rihanna. Hope she goes for it. At least go on a date.

        What difference would it make if it was a gay guy or straight girl? The opinion remains the same that Rihanna should date Kendricks.

    After taking a look at the guy, has anyone noticed that he looks like an older more muscular Chris Brown? Take off the war paint and remove the 5 O’clock shadow and that’s Christopher “beatabish” Brown
