Offensive Lineman Dropped From The Vikings For Being Too Heavy

| Filed under: Football

Viking lineman released

It turns out, size DOES matter for football players and being TOO BIG isn't too good.

Pro Bowl offensive lineman Bryant McKinnie has been released by the Minnesota Vikings after returning to training camp 65 pounds above last season's official playing weight.

At nearly 400 pounds, the team decided his excessive weight was the "final straw" after several embarrassing off-field issues throughout the years including a Miami brawl in 2008 . He was placed on the non-football injury list on Monday, then let go on Tuesday.

It sounds like this Viking didn't think this season was actually going to happen because of the lockout and pillaged his refrigerator a few too many times. However, he's keeping his head up and has told sources he'll be ready to play next year on a different team.
