Denard did what to stay warm in Big Ten weather?

We all know Michigan product Denard Robinson is a Florida boy. So, how did he survive the cold Big Ten weather? Vaseline, of course. Yes, Robinson would rub it all over his arms to stay warm. Random, no doubt, but the former Wolverine and current Jacksonville Jaguars running back revealed the secret in the entertaining video above.

“Yeah, it keeps the heat inside your body,” Robinson said in an interview with fellow rookie Eddie Lacy during the NFLPA Rookie Premiere. “It closes your pores up, that’s what it does.”

Hear Robinson talk about his strange habit at the 1:58 and 2:42 marks in the video. He also interviews former rival and Michigan State running back Le’Veon Bell 15 seconds in.
