Packers’ AJ Dillon jokes about massive quads, invokes Giants’ Saquon Barkley
Green Bay Packers running back AJ Dillon has turned heads at training camp with his impressive physique. It seems the rookie is doing all he can to get on the same level as New York Giants running back Saquon Barkley.
Barkley has made numerous headlines with his physical features as well with the most notable being his enormous quads. AJ Dillon took to Twitter to let him know that he is all too familiar with the struggle:

There are few players in the league worthy of comparing their quads to that of Barkley’s. It is safe to say that AJ Dillon has earned the right to put himself in that company by giving him a run for his money with his latest action shots from training camp.
Although most of the attention has been fixed on the situation under center in Green Bay, there is also another competition brewing in the backfield between AJ Dillon and Aaron Jones. Despite opting to take the rookie in the second round of the 2020 NFL Draft, Jones has embraced the prospect of competing to maintain his workhorse role. Unfortunately, this may not bode well for long-time complementary running back Jamaal Williams.
AJ Dillon’s size and skill set make him an immediate candidate to seize some touches in the red zone and other short-yardage situations. Regardless, he still has a long way to go before he is putting those quads to use as often as Barkley does. The Giants’ star is looking to make is case as one of the league’s elite running backs once again in the 2020 NFL season.
