New York Jets running back Le’Veon Bell recently showcased a body composition test featuring an absurd four percent body fat.

Once upon a time in a land far, far away, I, too, took a body composition test that featured just four percent body fat.

Then I woke up. My dog’s slobbering tongue scrapped across my face without notice brought me back to the harsh reality that is this: I am no Le’Veon Bell.

Saturday morning, the New York Jets hip-hop back showcased a body composition test featuring an absurd four percent body fat, via Bell’s official Twitter account.

Bell, 28, also typed a quick yet straightforward message to match the results only super athletes can achieve:

“I CANNOT WAIT TIL WE STRAP TF UP.”

The Jets’ big free-agent prize from a year ago experienced a rough go at it in his first year east. With virtually no help in front of him, Bell mustered a career-low 3.2 yards per carry (3.5 was his previous low mark, his rookie season).

Of course, Joe Douglas directly (and aggressively) targeted the unit that held back the Jets’ offense. Selecting Mekhi Becton in the first round and signing the likes of Connor McGovern, George Fant and Greg Van Roten should not only improve one of the league’s worst offensive lines from a season ago, but it should also increase the competition this August—a critical factor in helping raise the level of O-line play.

Since signing, Bell has been nothing but a tremendous professional on and off the field. While the Jamal Adams situation created incredible noise last trade deadline, Bell delivered a calming message. While frustration was apparent, the Jets’ back served as the level-headed vet.

It’s a new season for the NFL, albeit a strange one; but if Le’Veon Bell has his way, it will be one he looks back on with extreme pride.

What we have all seen from him this past offseason (including this ridiculous four percent body fat test) is an encouraging start.
