Stephen Weatherly calls himself weird.
He's played nine instruments — though he's settled on one for now. He solves Rubik's Cubes and 3D puzzles. He previously hosted "The Weatherly Report," where he bounced around Minnesota to try his hand at things like glass blowing.
He considers himself an introvert, but when you talk to the defensive end, he's as conversational as any extrovert you've ever met.
As Weatherly describes these traits, attributes, and hobbies over the course of a 20-minute conversation, any negative connotation of that word — weird — fades away.

And is he proud of that?
