It appears Marquise Brown has a bit of competition as to who worked the hardest over the offseason. According to D.J. Fluker’s social media, the veteran guard and new Raven is sporting a new physique after shedding nearly half his body fat percentage.

“‘Give me six hours to chop down a tree and I will spend the first four sharpening the axe.’” I am built better at 29 than I was at 21. This off season I chose a different fitness path @jrice_personaltraining to become leaner, stronger, faster and smarter in my 8th year than in my rookie year. My workouts were from 5 hours up to 8 hours a day. My food changed dramatically, 8 meals a day balanced and customized to make me a beast inside and out and get me to 22% body fat. I started in March at 40% body fat. It was a tough adjustment but the end results put me in the best body and mindset I have ever had. The journey is the most fun and makes the destination worth it.”

This could be a dramatic shift in Fluker’s play, which could vault Fluker into the vacant right guard role beside RT Orlando Brown Jr. If so, the tandem would create a sizeable blocking combo, with both standing at or above 6 feet, 5 inches tall.
