Here we go. I prefer to let players earn their nickname before assigning them one.

He'll earn a nickname the second he slams Matt Ryan or Cam Newton to the turf.

T-Rank
portmanteau of train and tank,

and it fits the less than original first-letter-partial-last-name trend

I remember when they had the Joe Montana nickname contest: complete flop-

Montana is an Americanized form of the surname Montani, which comes from northern Italy.[50] Montana earned the nickname "Joe Cool" for his ability to stay calm at key moments, and "Comeback Kid" for his history of rallying his teams from late-game deficits. His teammates in San Francisco called him "Bird Legs"[51][52] due to his very thin legs and small calves. He was called "Golden Joe" because he played in California (the Golden State), and also appeared on a poster superimposed in front of the Golden Gate Bridge with the wording "The Golden Great."[citation needed] Two more names were provided by a San Francisco Chronicle nickname contest early in his NFL career: the winner was "Big Sky", but another contestant suggested that since "Joe Montana" already sounded like a nickname, Montana needed a real name, and christened him "David W. Gibson."[53] Montana liked the Gibson name so much that he had it stenciled above his locker

Even though you've already demonstrated your way above average intelligence for a Georgian by being a Saints fan, I really have to ask. What's an Atlanta resident tryin' to talk so smart for? No one there's gonna be able to understand y'all.
