The Minnesota Vikings listed Bryant McKinnie on their roster as weighing 335 pounds.

He admitted to finishing last season at 360 pounds.

When he reported for training camp this weekend, according to Judd Zulgad of the Star Tribune, he weighed nearly 400 pounds.

That figure was what prompted Tuesday's surprising release, Zulgad reported. Throughout the lockout, there had been talk of players who might let themselves go without the structure of offseason workouts. I think it's fair to say that McKinnie was one of them. McKinnie said at the beginning of the offseason that he had hired a person trainer, and later he posted a video of him playing tennis with Venus Williams, but obviously things caught up to him this summer.
