Gardner Minshew Talks Workout Regimen, New Beard and Hairstyleby Andersen Pickard May 28, 2020 0 comments
It’s safe to say that despite the grueling aspects of the COVID-19 pandemic, Gardner Minshew continues to have fun while preparing for the 2020 season.
During a Zoom conference call with the media, the Jaguars’ signal-caller showed off his new beard and hairstyle while also explaining a grueling workout regimen that he has introduced in an attempt to improve his football ability going forward.
First, for the more serious of the two topics Minshew spoke about during the call: his workout routine. Since the conclusion of the Super Bowl, the sophomore quarterback has spent six days per week involved in an intense workout that is meant to improve his arm strength while maintaining his speed and quickness.
At the 2019 NFL Combine, Minshew recorded a 4.97 40-yard dash while finishing the 20-yard shuttle in 4.45 seconds and the three-cone drill in 7.14 seconds. He had a hand size of 10.13 inches and an arm length of 31.75 inches, plus a wingspan of 73.475 inches. Minshew’s strength was not tested at the Combine.
Now, onto the good stuff. Minshew is known for his magic and heroics, but also for his off-field antics and flashy hairstyles.
Today, Minshew revealed that he has grown a full beard, bridging a gap between his hair and mustache in a satisfying manner. Now, the flow on the top of his head seems to mesh into one with the mustache that made him a fan-favorite and an easy candidate for various team promotions.
In addition to the new beard, Minshew explained his new hairstyle. “I have not had my haircut in like a year so my mom had someone come to the house to cut my hair,” he said. “It was affecting her more than it was affecting me.”
Here’s a look at Minshew’s new flow:

Minshew appeared in 14 games and made 12 starts in 2019 after Nick Foles went down with an injury after signing a four-year deal the prior offseason. Minshew went 6-6 with 285 completions on 470 pass attempts. He added 3,271 yards with 21 touchdowns and six interceptions.
With Nick Foles traded to Chicago, the stage now belongs to Minshew. Time will tell how his 2020 season plays out, but the second-year quarterback is certainly making a name for himself with his new workout routine and flashy facial display.
