With an up-and-down NFL career so far, maybe going vegan in 2019 will help Chargers wide receiver Andre Patton find consistency. His change came after a friend showed him how the meat industry handles its products.

To make sure he gets protein, Patton says, “I eat plant-based burgers and hot dogs… To be honest, if I’m around meat — like meat, chicken, beef — it smells. It just smells so bad.” It doesn’t sound like he’ll be going back to meat anytime soon.
