08:01 AM ET 05.25 | Marcell Dareus bears watching as a possible menace on the field and a character off it -- though he actually does play a character between the lines, too. In between private workouts, the 21-year-old has spent much of the recent labor standoff issuing bold predictions ... while also clearing some time to spend with his pets (a python and a Chihuahua), and his alter ago. That's right, his alter ego. Off the field Dareus is an engaging and humorous figure, who apparently had Derek Jeter in stitches when they met at a pre-draft event in New York. Within the gridiron though, he reinvents himself as the Incredible Hulk, and will politely request that his new Bills teammates address him as such during game action.

He should play a few downs of football and earn that nickname.

I was thinking the same thing... betcha the thought of "snack" has crossed that snake's mind once or twice.

only buy it if he wears green sleeves during games, and is good. until then known as Potential Bills Bust #337

Don't self gloss. Let others give you the nickname.

Does he have a backup chihuahua in case the python gets out of control? Maybe with a little clipboard?

Nicknames aren't *earned* any more, this is the Age of Entitlement(see LeQuit).

He should wear "HE HULK ME"

May 25, 2011  09:10 AM ET

Team to Dareus - "NO!"

Logan Mankins to Marcel: the only green we'll see is the grass stains from getting pancaked

I thought The Hulk didn't have an ounce of fat on him.

Dareus to Beiber Brady: "Why are you crying? I didn't hit you THAT hard!"

Sounds like he has a good time and doesn't have a problem making fun of himself. I'll just call him "sir".

May 25, 2011  10:27 AM ET

Did he say "Hulk" or "Bulk"? Let him sulk until he shows which name best describes him.

I can see the veterans painting him green and duct taping him to a goal post.
