Strongman Hafthor Bjornsson To Play In The NFL?


Stampede Blue, the unofficial blog for the Indianapolis Colts reported that Jim Irsay, the team owner and CEO of the team has expressed via Twitter he is interested in the 6' 9" 420lb Hafthor "The Icelander" Bjornsson to play Nose Guard in Indy. Bjornsson who placed third at the 2012 Worlds Strongest Man peaked the curiosity of Irsay when he compared his physical size and strength with that of current NFL lineman on Twitter:

Off/Def Lineman,so many 6-3 to 6-7..320-365 lbs/Big,Physical and Nasty! Speaking of size/strength..GM Grig's just might sign "The Icelander"

Is this all a joke? No one knows at this point, but we will continue to follow this to see if the Giant from Iceland makes a special trip to the U.S., inparticular... Indianapolis!
