Watch a 335-Pound NFL Defensive Lineman Hurdle an Opponent During an Interception Return

Who says big men can't jump?

When you weigh 335 pounds, jumping over stuff isn't usually in your athletic repertoire. Any elevation from the ground into the air is deemed a success. But Miami Dolphins defensive lineman Jordan Phillips laughs in the face of physics. He scoffs at your notion of athleticism. And he hurdles human beings in a single bound.

When you weigh 335 pounds, jumping over stuff isn't usually in your athletic repertoire. Any elevation from the ground into the air is deemed a success. But Miami Dolphins defensive lineman Jordan Phillips laughs in the face of physics. He scoffs at your notion of athleticism. And he hurdles human beings in a single bound.

In the third quarter against the New York Jets on Sunday, Phillips picked off the interception-prone Ryan Fitzpatrick. He opened the play by dropping into coverage, impressive enough for a big D-lineman. After making the interception with nothing but green grass in front of him, Phillips took off, attempting to run the 30 yards he needed for an improbably pick-6. He didn't make it, but he did hurdle Jets wide receiver Robby Anderson at the 20-yard line as Anderson attempted to tackle him low. It was a beautiful.

Jordan Phillips is an inspiration.
