It was bound to happen eventually, right?

New England Patriots linebacker Jerod Mayo is getting into the mayonnaise business, releasing a line of "gourmet" mayo-based condiments.

The "All-Pro" mayonnaise comes in three fitting flavors: Kickin’ Buffalo, Bruisin’ Bacon, Curshin’ Chipotle.

Mayo joins a roster of other athletes trying to make the leap from the locker room to the kitchen: Justin Verlander ("Fastball Flakes"); Rob Gronkowski ("Gronk Flakes"); Pascal Dupuis ("Dupuis Dijon"); Miguel Cabrera ("Miggy's Salsa Triple Crown Pack"); Peyton Hillis ("Redzone Salsa"); and more. Mayo plans to donate a portion of his proceeds from his "All-Pro Mayo" to Boston Medical Center.
