Los Angeles quarterback Cardale Jones has hinted he's considering ditching the animals products.
Taking to Twitter recently, the former Ohio State star wrote: "Thinking about going vegan."
The tweet, which has nearly 2,000 likes, has garnered mixed responses.
One vegan Twitter used said: "On behalf of all animals, DO IT!!!!"
Tim Dom wrote: "There are some high performance vegan athletes. You'll burn cleaner and feel great. Takes a minute to adjust but you live in the right place."
Non-vegan Elika Sadeghi commented: "Listen, I'll give vegan food this... it would probably be delicious if you just add some meat and cheese to it."
Bo Anderson added: "You're a professional athlete. You need as much lean protein as you can get. Vegan = Bad Idea. #Carnivore."
