Former Mizzou DL Jordan Harold is no stranger to forcing his way into a job. Back in college, he waited for then-Mizzou DL coach Craig Kuligowski to ask for a tryout.
He ended up playing two years for the Tigers after transferring from Northwest Missouri State, where he was a solid presence along the defensive line.
Now, Harold is trying that same strategy with the NFL. As you can see below, he’s outside the Carolina Panthers’ facility with a sign that says he “will pass rush for hot wings”:

“I just want a shot,” he said. “I’ve had a long football career and I’m ready for it to keep going. I’m ready for it to move on to the next level. It takes a lot of humility to do something like this. I know what it’s like. I’ve been an underdog my entire football career.”
According to KansasCity.com, the tactic may end up working again. Per the report, Harold’s information has been passed along to the Panthers’ scouting department, so he may end up getting that tryout he asked for.
