Alshon Jeffery garners little sympathy from players vigilant with supplements

Walk through any NFL locker room, and the setup is the same. Containers of dietary supplements sit on shelves inside many players' stalls.

Some containers are neon-colored. Some are labeled with bold fonts. Some are made to look medicinal.

Some are big. Others are small. Some, to those of us who don't tackle other men for a living, seem downright nonsensical.

Take, for example, a bright red canister branded "N.O. XPLODE," a self-proclaimed "Pre-Workout Igniter." It contains 52 ingredients ranging from magnesium to 2-Dimethylaminoethanol to L-Citrulline Malate.

Of course, you have to have your L-Citrulline Malate.
