SAN DIEGO – The San Diego Chargers cornerback Johnny Patrick has more than 74,000 followers on Instagram and he’s not afraid to put himself out there.
Patrick has a simple philosophy when it comes to posting self-portraits and it’s quite obvious to his @johnnypatrick26 Instagram followers and teammates.
“I feel comfortable with myself so why not,” Patrick said.
“Every picture, his shirt’s off in most of them. Yeah, it’s pretty funny,” said fellow Chargers cornerback Shareece Wright.
Patrick said all of his Instagram “selfie” pictures are football related – regardless if his shirt is on or off.
“If it was a photo shoot, it was football-related with my PR doing the work. Everything with my shirt off was coming off the field and is football-related,” said Patrick.
As you might expect, the 24-year-old has a comments column that runs about the length of a football field – mostly complimentary.
