Los Angeles quarterback Cardale Jones has announced that he is 'officially vegan' on Twitter earlier this week.
Jones also took to social media to ask for advice regarding the plant-based lifestyle.
He tweeted: "Now I need help on a diet and getting the right amounts of protein."
The news was well-received by his followers, with Jacoby Young responding: "Got it! Less harm is done. Fewer animals are harmed."
