Chris Long terrorized NFL quarterbacks for years. Now he’s providing nightmare fuel after transforming himself into Joe Exotic from Netflix’s hit series, “Tiger King.”

Early Thursday morning, Long promoted his latest podcast, Green Light with Chris Long. Then, he shared a picture of himself as a “method podcaster” and this scribe will never be the same again.

Not surprisingly, this picture garnered some funny responses on Twitter.


I’m not going to lie, Long’s transformation into Joe Exotic shook me to my core. The only thing he is missing here is the piercings and gun Joe Exotic so famously sported at all times.


Oh, and would it have killed him to do this with a live tiger? Kidding. Maybe.
