Did the SEC photoshop a picture of Heisman Trophy candidate Derrick Henry to get rid of his arm tattoos and give him a more clean cut image???
That's what a lot of people are saying after taking a look at the image the SEC tweeted out this week in an effort to congratulate the running back on winning SEC Offensive Player of the Year.
A rep for the SEC tells TMZ Sports the short answer is NO -- but they do admit the pic WAS modified using a filter.
"We didn't photoshop the picture that we posted on social media sites at all," a spokesperson tells us.
"The filter we used is the only explanation for Derrick Henry's tattoos not being visible in the picture. We used that particular filter because it's the same one we have used all year for our player of the week posts."
BTW, Henry is the odds on favorite to win the Heisman this weekend -- and he'll probably get a tattoo to commemorate it.
