Looking to get back into Pro-Bowl form, Baltimore Ravens tackle Bryant McKinnie is treating the team's voluntary offseason workout as if it was mandatory.
McKinnie's weight shot up to 400 pounds during the lockout last offseason, leading the Minnesota Vikings, the only team the 10-year veteran had known, to cut him.
Now McKinnie is playing at 365 pounds and trying to lose 15 more.
"That would be that perfect weight, because when you get too light people start pushing you around," McKinnie said. "That would take away my advantage."
"They just wanted to see what I looked like physically, make sure I didnât balloon up," McKinney. "It was important for them to see me here working and for me to take advantage of the time we have in the classroom."
