As you might be able to imagine, there was a large media contingent surrounding Kamu Grugier-Hill’s locker on Thursday afternoon. Grugier-Hill entered the spotlight on Wednesday with his comments about how the Dallas Cowboys “always choke.”
But when Grugier-Hill arrived at his stall on Thursday, Eagles reporters were met with a surprise. It wasn’t really him at all! It was actually just Eagles second-year wide receiver Shelton Gibson in disguise.

That’s pretty funny.
Good on Gibson to lighten the mood and provide a brief distraction for his teammate. Bad on those who fell for it considering Gibson is three inches shorter and about 40 pounds lighter than Kamu.
