(WSCR) Does this dress make me look fat?

It’s a phrase most men have heard from a woman at one point or another. Now, however, it’s NFL players who are asking similar questions.

According to reports, several NFL players have expressed displeasure that the new jerseys, now made by Nike, make them look fat.

“It makes me look fat, and I’m not fat,” 49ers guard Alex Boone said. “… It makes me look like I have big old love handles.”

And there’s more.

“I don’t really care for the new jerseys,” Ravens defensive lineman Terrence Cody said.  “I feel like they should put different material in for the big guys.”

The NFL made the switch from Reebok to Nike before the 2012 season.
