Jeff Hart: Friday Linkfest for February 24, 2012

Let’s get the gym photos out of the way up front. Here’s a photo of beefcake Redskins safety LaRon Landry that’s been making the rounds.
Most stories ignore that right after that photo was snapped, Landry asked the photographer to help him unscrew the top on that jar of muscle-powder. Got to work more than the glamour muscles, bro.
The citizens of Miami have become the latest group to try wooing Peyton Manning with a fancy billboard. Thanks to the new CBA, the Colts can actually sign their first pick before the draft even happens, as early as today. That means we’ll soon have an idea where Manning and his neck are headed. Watch out, JP Losman!
With the first pick likely getting signed in advance, the big drama for draft day will be what happens with #2, especially with the Rams fielding potential deals from multiple teams. The Rams are in desperate need to move that RG3 pick for some shiny new parts. According to Cold Hard Football Facts, the franchise has spent the last four years sucking to a degree of historic significance.
Tired of all the “10 Players To Watch At The Combine” articles? Sports Pickle boils the rookies down to their basest elements.
What else is happening in Indianapolis? Rey Ryan celebrated the one year anniversary of guaranteeing a Jets Super Bowl victory by largely playing coy and not making any bloated predictions. Is Ryan turning over a new leaf or was the Pepsi Max guy just not available?
Finally, here’s a long-read on last season’s Eagles home-opener where Michael Vick allegedly contused his non-throwing hand. It ties issues of player health in with fan perception, paints a vivid picture of what it’s like to tailgate in Philadelphia, and will definitely make you feel something (probably pity and/or revulsion). Enjoy!
