WATCH: Philadelphia Eagles Offensive Lineman Throws Down a Wicked Reverse Jam

What's the story with huge NFL linemen throwing down monster dunks on the basketball court?

What is it with big football players suddenly dunking like NBA guards? Are offensive and defensive linemen now genetically engineered to play every sport and defy the physical limitations of their large frames? Is this a conspiracy that goes all the way to the top?

We may never know the answers, but Philadelphia Eagles offensive lineman Lane Johnson is the latest big man to prove that leaping ability is no longer reserved for people like Zach LaVine. A former Oklahoma Sooner, Johnson is clearly pumped about his alma mater's trip to the Final Four; and to show his support, he threw down an incredibly impressive, double-pump reverse dunk, made even cooler by being filmed in slow motion.

When offensive and defensive linemen take over the world, don't say we didn't warn you.
