Super Bowl champion almost vomits after consuming skewer
Super Bowl champion defensive end Chris Long nearly vomited after consuming a can containing skewer. During his podcast titled Green light with Chris Long, the two-time champion tasted something he had no idea what it was. His co-hosts on the podcast had no empathy for the former NFL defensive end, as they put it:
“Are you going to vomit?! That would be great! Do it in front of the camera!”
According to the podcast’s website, Long, his best friend Macon, and several actors join forces to bring an expert perspective on all things professional football and a beginner’s perspective on everything else.
The podcast features interviews with some of the biggest names in sports and entertainment, periodic outbursts, and recurring misjudgments.
The Super Bowl champion and his NFL career
Long was the second overall pick in the 2008 NFL Draft by the University of Virginia St. Louis Rams. Playing the first eight seasons of his career with the Rams, he had 54.5 sacks, eight forced fumbles and 332 combined tackles.
His 54.5 sacks with the Rams are among the all-time best 15 in franchise history, which also includes when the Rams were located in Cleveland, St. Louis and now Los Angeles.
He then spent the 2016 season as a member of the New England Patriots, playing in all 16 games while starting seven of them. Long had four sacks, three passes defended and 35 combined tackles. That season, the Patriots won Super Bowl 51 against the Atlanta Falcons, giving Long his first-ever Lombardi Trophy.
After one season with New England, he landed with the Philadelphia Eagles for the final two seasons of his NFL career. He won the second Lombardi of his career when the Eagles beat the Patriots in Super Bowl 52 in the 2017 season.
In his two seasons with Philadelphia, he had 11.5 sacks, six forced fumbles and 51 combined tackles.
In May 2019, Long retired after an 11-year NFL career. He racked up 70 sacks in 162 games and was the winner of the 2018 Walter Payton Man of the Year award.
