Bears running back Tarik Cohen is one of the shortest players in the NFL standing at 5-6.
He is in a league of giants (not the New York kind), so Cohen’s height stands out more than it would in the regular world. He is not that short of a person, but he short by NFL standards. So when he is in a locker room full of NFL athletes, everything is adjusted for taller players.
This led to a hilarious exchange in a behind-the-scenes video the Bears posted on YouTube. The video was a simple interview with defensive lineman Nick Williams, who was talking to the media. But about midway through his media session, Cohen could be heard in the background:
“WHO KEEPS PUTTING THE TOWELS ON THE TOP SHELF?”
(Start the video at about 32 seconds.)
This is not the only time Cohen’s height has been brought up this season. During the Bears’ Week 7 matchup against the Saints, some New Orleans players started mocking Cohen’s height. The video made its way to social media, and Cohen responded, “Y’all act like i don’t know I’m short.”
