It's 2016 and NFL players are still making Raymond Felton fat jokes

Oh c'mon, give it up already.

Jerome Miron-USA TODAY Sports

The thickly built Raymond Felton has dealt with weight issues previously in his career, so fat jokes have pretty much followed him everyone. Even I made a few food jokes when Felton first came over from New York. But c'mon -- it's 2016. Aren't we done with that? Shouldn't two NFL players find some other way to make digs (or Diggs?) at each other?

Felton's our guy now, so I'm sticking up for him now. I'd like to see one of them average nearly 10 points and 3.6 assists for the Mavericks while starting 18 games.
