The Pittsburgh Steelers made former Former Lakeland High and Florida Gators star running back Chris Rainey their fifth-round selection in the 2012 NFL Draft. The team knew that on the field they would be getting an electrifying rusher who would have the ability to take the ball to the house on every play.
What the team may not have realized is that they would be adding a big personality to the locker room.
As the Steelers prepare to travel to Denver for their game against the Broncos, safety Ryan Clark sent out a tweet that featured a link we just knew we had to click on. Here is the tweet:
When you click on the link, you see an example of Rainey’s personality. Check out this outfit he is wearing on the trip:
Rainey is the brother of former NFL running back Rod Smart. Smart is best known for his days in the XFL where he was quite the showman with the alias “He Hate Me.” Rainey is also the cousin of former NFL receiver Freddie “The People’s Champ” Mitchell. When you look at this bloodlines, you no longer question where he gets his showmanship from.
Rainey seems to be loose and excited for his first NFL regular season action. He will need to keep that calm, collected attitude to help the Steelers avenge their loss against the Broncos that ended their 2011 season.
