Vernon Davis is hoping to reinvent himself in his first season with the Redskins.

The two-time Pro Bowle tight end enters his 11th season in the NFL looking to dial back the clock to the mid-aughts, when he was one of the most formidable pass-catchers in the league.

But in order to do so, he needs to be in excellent shape when OTAs begin.

What better way than spending some time working out with former Miami Hurricane-turned pro wrestling icon-turned Hollywood action star Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson?

On Saturday, Davis posted a picture to Instagram showing him and The Rock flexing after a solid workout.

Davis has been a fan of the WWE and pro wrestling for a good long time. He was part of the WrestleMania 31 press conference, which took place tat Levi's stadium, the home of his former team the San Francisco 49ers. On top of that, his young son once received a WWE care package from then-WWE superstar Rey Mysterio Jr.

Davis will have his work cut out for him come training camp, but at least he will have a great story to tell.
