Heavyweight contender Jarrell ‘Big Baby’ Miller (23-0-1, 20 KOs) has his name in the running for a fight against unified titleholder Anthony Joshua, but that’s not stopping him from weighing his options, it seems.

Standing 6’4” and weighing-in at about 315lbs, Miller has all the looks of an NFL lineman, and he just recently revealed on social media that he’s been given an offer by a NFL team to play some ball. Miller then threatens to leave boxing and play professional football (for more money) if he can’t come to terms for a Joshua fight.

Miller, 30, is most recently coming off a knockout win over Bogdan Dinu last November, and is thought to be a viable opponent for Joshua to make his splash into the U.S. market. But Joshua and his promoter are also looking at a potential rematch against Dillian Whyte, with Whyte’s purse offer the only thing that seems to be holding that fight up for the moment.
