This nickname works on a number of levels (and is definitely the best one I have ever thought of) -
Sergio Kindle: "The Amazon Freak"
The Amazon-Kindle connection should be obvious.
Now, we need the Amazonian Freakishness part to shine through.
Kindle, the Texas DE/LB stands 6 feet, 4 inches tall and registers 255 on the scale.
He recorded 5.5 sacks (2.5 came in the BCS Title Game) and added 30+ QB hurries during the 2009-10 season. He figures to be a first round pick in the upcoming NFL Draft.
If one of the following three things happens during the NFL Combine this week, this nickname could have some staying power:
1) He shows up chiseled
2) He runs a 4.5 40
3) He throws up 25+ reps of 225 on the bench
Please let this happen.
Regardless, I will be referring to him by his nickname from here on out.
