Cairo Santos doesn’t look like your average NFL football player. The Kanasas City Chiefs’ kicker stands at 5-foot-8 and weighs 160 pounds.

So we are left wondering aloud why exactly Santos decided to put on someone else’s cleats and try to dunk a basketball. We’re not left wondering how it all turned out for the kicker.

Yes, thats Santos trying (and utterly failing) to dunk a basketball wearing the cleats of offensive tackle Mitchell Schwartz. Size 18 cleats to be exact.

At the very least, Santos can claim that he was following the rules of the Chiefs’ locker room.

“No dunking.”

Next up on Santos’ off-season to-do list is singing R. Kelly’s “I Believe I Can Fly.”

That would be equally as awesome, right?
