Case Keenum’s makeshift coaching routine amid the coronavirus pandemic has him feeling like a meme.
During a conference name Wednesday, the brand new Cleveland Browns quarterback joked that he was training like Uncle Rico, the famous character from the cult comedy basic “Napoleon Dynamite.”
“Is that the man that arrange the video digital camera out by his camper and threw the football around in this yard?” he stated, per Cleveland.com’s Mary Kay Cabot. “In the event you haven’t seen it, you should go take a look at the video clip. I feel like Uncle Rico at occasions in my yard doing drops and throwing the ball by myself. I undoubtedly haven’t thrown as a lot this offseason as I usually have.
“I know everyone is on their very own making an attempt to do their greatest to get ready and stay in shape,” the 32-year-old signal caller added. “I’m about to go perform a little exercise with my spouse here in our pool. We’re going to perform a little pool aerobics. It ought to be enjoyable. She’ll be excited. We’re just hanging out here, altering diapers and enjoying some household time. We'll cross the rest of the bridges once we get there.”
Keenum, who's far from the only Uncle Rico fan in the NFL, simply signed a three-year cope with the Browns. He had just a 1-7 report as a starter with the Washington Redskins last season and in addition battled some injuries, so he in all probability has a bit more work to do to prepare for the 2020 marketing campaign.
