Doug Baldwin goes to the movies alone, crushes on Scarjo


Here at cover32 Seahawks we like to tease wide receiver Doug Baldwin because he has a bad temper, but he’s one of the more interesting NFL players on Twitter. Unlike other Seahawks who will remain nameless, Baldwin doesn’t just tweet inspirational quotes like a robot – he shows his personality.

For example, a couple of weeks ago he posted a rant about a woman eating chicken nuggets the wrong way:

Baldwin engages with fans and other players like an actual person. That’s one of the things I love about players on this team; guys like Richard Sherman and Marshawn Lynch who aren’t afraid to be themselves even in front of the media. Anyway, on Sunday night Baldwin intimated that he likes going to the movies… alone.


No Doug, it’s not weird. A few hours later he tweeted praise for Scarlett Johansson’s acting skills:


Baldwin was probably talking about Jonathan Glazer’s new sci-fi flick Under the Skin, where Scarjo plays an alien who drives around preying on humans. It’s gotten rave reviews on Rotten Tomatoes and I definitely plan on catching it asap. Here’s a trailer.

Looks good. The movie, of course.

Baldwin is currently a restricted free agent, but the Seahawks have attached a second-round tender to him. In a draft year this good it’s unlikely any team would be willing to part with a second rounder for Baldwin. I sincerely hope that they’re able to keep him for 2014 and beyond.
