1. WHAT'S YOUR BEST HALLOWEEN COSTUME?
Colt Anderson: "One year I was Michael Jackson, but my best costume was one yeah when I was – who was Katy Perry's old boyfriend? Oh yeah, Russell Brand. When I was with the Vikings, I was voted funniest Halloween costume for that one and my wife was Katy Perry. Any time you win funniest costume? Come on."
Earl Wolff: "I haven't worn a Halloween costume since I was little, but my best was probably my Wolverine costume. I loved X-Men. Like I loved X-Men, and Wolverine was always my favorite. It's so ironic because, you know, Brian Dawkins."
Mychal Kendricks: "The best Halloween costume I've ever had was a handmade Power Ranger costume. The White ranger. I was 6 or 7. I have pictures. My mom made the costume from scratch, she's a seamstress. I had homemade costumes every year, but my favorite one was the Power Rangers because it was me and all my cousins and my mom made all us costumes. Remember when that movie came out?"
Connor Barwin: "My second year in the league, I broke my ankle ... So I went as Lieutenant Dan (from Forrest Gump)."
Brandon Boykin: "I was one of the Chippendale dancers my senior year of college. I got a lot of attention that night."
Brent Celek: "I was the Tin Man, my whole family was the Wizard of Oz. I was about 13. Everybody played a character. I was the greatest Tin Man ever. I had silver paint all over my body."
Zach Ertz: "In sixth or seventh grade, I was the Will Ferrell cheerleader from (Saturday Night Live)."
Vinny Curry: "Oh, without question Ric Flair. I'm a huge wrestling fan and Ric Flair was always my favorite. It's on Youtube."
