Mike Hamlin became the second Cowboy in as many days to have nude photos surface on the Internet on Tuesday, when the website MediaTakeout.com posted images of the second-year safety in a pose reminiscent of Martellus Bennett; nude photos of Bennett, of course, popped up on the same site on Monday.
Head coach Wade Phillips refused comment on the matter but, according to Hamlin, these photos are not authentic.
"It's photoshopped," Hamlin said Tuesday, per ESPNDallas.com. "If you look at my stomach (lifts shirt up) and the shirt on the photo, it's two different things. I don't know how these photos got up there, have no idea where it came from."
Hamlin is among a large group of professional athletes who have run into this sort of controversy of late--a group that includes the Washington Redskins’ Chris Cooley, the Tampa Bay Rays’ Evan Longoria and the Portland Trailblazers’ Greg Oden. Oh, and of course, the aforementioned Bennett.
