Todd Herremans on a Roll-a-Bout: Be Afraid, Be Very Afraid

Dec 5, 2012, 1:50 PM EDT

Courtesy of DN’s Les Bowen, here is a picture of Todd
Herremans using a Roll-a-Bout. Yes, that is the same contraption that nearly
crippled Jason Peters this offseason. But don’t worry guys. This model comes
with brakes!

When I first saw this photo, I instinctively became apprehensive.
Not long after undergoing surgery to repair his ruptured Achilles tendon,
Peters found himself back in the operating room due to an apparent Roll-a-Bout
The second tear set the left tackle’s recovery back at least three
weeks, and Peters eventually wound up on IR. Last we heard he was suing the
manufacturer, so you can understand my concern for Todd, who is out for the
year with a rare foot injury.

Once I got over my illogical fear of Roll-a-Bouts, I started
to notice a few things. Is that a convenient carrying basket on the front? Functional
and fashionable!


Wait a second. Is that a brake line? Do my eyes deceive? The
Roll-a-Bout requires brakes?

What a revelation. Clearly this is a more sophisticated
piece of equipment than we realized. Maybe Peters pizza-d when he should have
French fry-d?

Just be careful, okay big guy? Or you’re gonna have a bad time.
