‘Big, strong,’ Ben Cleveland dishes on squirrel diet in Baltimore

But it was what Cleveland said behind the podium that turned heads on Friday.

“I don’t know if it’s a specific diet,” Cleveland said, asked about his unusual diet. “You eat what you got in the freezer from the fall.

“Had a few squirrels freeze-dried in there, get a little hungry, ain’t got no deer meat left, fry you up a squirrel or two and just go eat that.”

“That’s a big, strong, powerful guy that likes to rough people up,” he said to The Sun, “and that’s how we want to play”
