Give him the Harrison bounce.

Fan puts on full pads, tries to practice with Steelers
Posted by Michael David Smith on August 11, 2018, 9:21 PM EDT

A fan put on a full uniform and made it past security at Steelers training camp this morning, just missing getting to take part in practice before he was exposed.
The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports that the fan attempted to take part in drills with the team before he was escorted off the field.

If they were full-contact drills, the security guards who pulled the fan off the field probably saved him from great bodily harm. Shoulder pads and a helmet aren’t enough to protect the average Joe from the hits an NFL player would deliver.
The fan was wearing a No. 43 jersey, which Troy Polamalu wore and which the Steelers haven’t issued since Polamalu retired after the 2014 season.

It is unclear whether the fan is facing any type of charges for trespassing on the practice field. Steelers coach Mike Tomlin declined to discuss the incident when reporters asked him about it after practice.

I think it's an awesome story, but in this day & age you have to have zero tolerance for that stuff. Too many crazies out there.

Right
I think 30 years ago he would've gotten away with it, not anymore

When hank Aaron hit his record breaking HR, it scared me to think what those 2 guys could have done to him considering the death threats hank was receiving at the time

Aaron should have hit those douchebags. It was his accomplishment, but they intrude and make it about them. Now they're in every highlight of his achievement.

:lol:

Ravens fans will probably want the NFL to take away a draft pick for violating the number of players used on a preseason roster.

In a related story - Around the League cites an unnamed source and reports that the Patriots have signed the impostor.
