New York Post Mocks Yankee 'Derek Eater' For Letting Himself Go

Derek Jeter has gained a lot of weight while recovering from his ankle injury, the New York Post reports in a big backpage story today.

According to the Post, Jeter has been unable to work out because of his broken ankle and has put on some pounds as a result.

The Post’s evidence that Jeter is fat is this picture of him walking down the street in Florida. He certainly looks a little chubbier, but it’s also windy, and the picture was taken at an awkward angle. So who really knows.

He wouldn’t be the first athlete to let himself go, but the evidence is a bit flimsy at this point.

It’s bizarre all around, but at least we got this grade-A NY Post backpage out of it:
