We've seen some massive defensive linemen pass through the NFL -- your J.J. Watts, Vince Wilforks and so on -- but all of them would look like children compared to Dondre Harris. Harris, a senior at Essex High School in Tappahannock, Virginia, stands 7 feet tall and weighs 380 pounds, making him pretty easy to pick out on the football field (or anywhere, really). MaxPreps.com was on hand at Harris' latest game, and they captured some pretty amazing images of just how much Harris stands out:
We don't envy the opposing quarterbacks who have to throw over Harris -- or the running backs who try to get through him on a goal-line stand.
It's been a massively troubling month for the NFL, in the wake of multiple domestic violence cases and the Adrian Peterson situation.
We're not saying forget all that. You definitely shouldn't. But sometimes you need a break. So here it comes, in the form of one amazing Twitter picture in which a dog and her puppies all show off their Seattle Seahawks spirit by wearing "12th Man" shirts.
That's so adorable, even a cat person (ahem) can't deny it. It might be the best NFL/fuzzy animal mashup since a Green Bay Packers fan named her new feline Ha Ha Kitten-Dix this offseason.

You might have seen Tom Brady's purported resume earlier today, which the New England Patriots quarterback shared on Facebook for Throwback Thursday.
Psssh. It's a fake. SportsNation got its hands on Brady's real resume. Check it out. (Note: This is 100 percent real, certainly not created today by SN staffers or anything.)

DeAndre Yedlin was a revelation for Team USA at this year's World Cup, but he's still prone to the occasional mistakes that most young players make. The difference with Yedlin is that when he does misplay a ball that leads to a clear breakaway, he does stuff like this:
That's what it looks like when a man with average speed for a professional soccer player gets chased down by a man who ran a 4.2 40-yard dash. We can't wait to see what an older, wiser (but hopefully still just-as-fast) Yedlin can do when 2018 rolls around.
