Eagles Mychal Kendricks responds to being Rihanna’s #ManCrushMonday


On Monday, pop star Rihanna caused a stir when she posted a photo of Eagles LB Mychal Kendricks on Instagram as her man crush Monday.

Mychal got the news and admitted that his teammates were giving him a hard time.


“Some of the guys told me about it. They were busting my chops a little,” Kendricks said.

According to CSNPhilly, the shy athlete was then asked if he ever met the Barbadian beauty and brushed off the questions telling the reporter with a smile, “I don’t want to talk about this, y’all.”

Awwww and he’s shy too! The flood gates are open now. I hope he doesn’t have a girlfriend. Can you imagine the panic that sweeps over you if Rihanna names your boo as her crush?

Rihanna wasn’t the only one feeling Mychal, “Love & Hip Hop” star Tahiry also posted his photo.


Since a lot of the women had no idea who he was, let me provide a few vital stats for you:

  • 23 years old – he’s a Libra
  • drafted in the second round by the Eagles in 2012
  • attended University of California Berkley
  • Next season will year 3 of a 4-year deal that was worth $4.3 million which included a signing bonus of $1.6 million.

Enjoy the offseason Mychal. Seems to be off to an epic start.
