Case in point? The big brouhaha surrounding the perceived weight of Winston back in February in which he looked a little larger than normal during training. That led to comments that he might be another version of former No. 1 overall pick JaMarcus Russell, one of the biggest busts in NFL history.
It turns out Winston has somebody in his corner who, in addition to being a former NFL quarterback, also knows a thing or two about putting on a few pounds.
"The little skinny guys don't make it. They can't take a hit," Lorenzen said. "Look at RG3 ... small guy. Now he can't even run."
There are plenty of reasons why Winston won't be another JaMarcus Russell when, if things go as expected, he winds up taking snaps for Tampa Bay Buccaneers. And his weight, whatever it actually is, certainly won't be one of them, according to one former NFL quarterback.
