It isn’t weird for the NFL to draw comparisons from other forms of entertainment.
Recently, the league made a Twitter thread about players being characters in Netflix’s hit series “Stranger Things.”
It’s a timely comparison after the said program recently unveiled its fourth season.
Fans of both the NFL and “Stranger Things” will enjoy this thread.

The first picture comparison features Las Vegas Raiders quarterback Derek Carr and Eleven, played by Millie Bobby Brown.
It also features Tom Brady as Will Byers, played by Noah Schnapp.
Next on the thread are Justin Herbert and Billy Hargrove, played by Dacre Montgomery.
Joe Burrow is also being compared to Steve Harrington, played by Joe Keery.
Set in the 1980s, the show features a group of young friends that have unlocked paranormal mysteries in their search for answers regarding Byers’ abduction.
Stranger Things During Mandatory Minicamp
While there is no paranormal activity during the team’s offseason preparations, it would be strange to see some players skip the mandatory minicamp.
Yes, they have the right to forego voluntary OTAs.
But they have to show up now that they are required to do so.
Several players are set to miss minicamp, especially players who are demanding a new contract.
As “Stranger Things” bring top-notch entertainment to its audience, drama is also brewing among NFL teams and their marquee players.
Football fans better get their popcorn ready while remaining updated with the latest during minicamps.
