Browns fans know Greg Little had a case of butter fingers last season, with his 12 drops tying him for second most in the league.
What they don't know is that every Thursday after practice he had a case of butter, flour, sugar and frosting fingers. Apparently, linebacker Chris Gocong's wife, Mandy, would bring cupcakes for the team, and Little always made sure to get his share.
"I'd eat about seven to ten and the guys would get on me about that," he told the Akron Beacon Journal.
Upon hearing the news, Mandy Gocong tweeted on Thursday:
To which Little responded, "the best in the world!!!"
But they aren't part of his new plan. Little is taking his fitness and nutrition to another level getting ready for his sophomore season. He gave up the cupcakes and has lost 11 pounds with the new diet and workout regimen.
Yankees fans will remember CC Sabathia showing up at training camp last season 25 pounds lighter after giving up his daily vice -- a box of Cap'N Crunch cereal. But Little wasn't out of shape to begin with.
He led the team with 61 receptions for 709 yards, finishing with the second most catches in the league among rookies in 2011. Ditching cupcakes is part of an overall process that included getting out of the gym. The Browns second-round pick was too focused on lifting and is now putting that time in on the field.
Coming into OTA's at a sleek 219 was, in part, motivated by a conversation with head coach Pat Shurmur after last season ended.
"I basically told him that he needed to do everything he can in this offseason to make a huge jump for his second year," Shurmur said. "I think he’s got a good start on that."
Little should be fine, unless Brandon Weeden's wife has one heck of a brownie recipe.
