Sam Howell is not like athletes in the National Football League.
The former North Carolina Tar Heels QB has thrown for thousands of yards but is not a man that has ever tasted red meat.
Per MLB Network’s Grant Paulsen, “I just found out Sam Howell has never eaten steak or tried a burger. This could be all we talk about for the rest of the day.” Adding, “He’s not vegetarian. He loves chicken. He refuses to try steak or a burger.”
Fans weren’t feeling Howell tooo much after he admitted this.
“Cut him,” said one Washington fan.
“Between the different voices depending who he is speaking to and now this, idk if i can trust Sam Howell…” a user replied. “I wanna hop on the Howell Train but I’m a natural hater at heart and idk if I can get past these things”
“This would’ve been massive in my evaluation of Sam Howell,” another tweeted. “He would’ve dropped down my QB Rankings to the Undraftable, Unsignable tier.”
Howell, 21, was considered to be one of the top quarterback prospects in the country entering the 2021 season but fell to the fifth round after a rocky season.
During his college career at UNC, Howell completed 63.8 percent of his passes for 10,283 yards, 92 touchdowns, and 23 interceptions over the course of 37 games and three seasons. He also rushed for 1,009 yards and 17 touchdowns.
