ESPN: Inside Jared Lorenzen's lifelong weight battle Published: August 25, 2014

Ex-NFL QB Jared Lorenzen still loves football. But what do you do when your appetite for food competes with your appetite for the game?

From the story, written by Tommy Tomlinson ...

The day after the Seahawks crushed the Broncos in Super Bowl XLVIII, Lorenzen suited up at quarterback for the Northern Kentucky River Monsters of the Continental Indoor Football League, the latest in a string of indoor teams he's played with in recent years.

He wore a jersey that clung to him like snakeskin. The River Monsters listed him at 320 pounds. His real weight was somewhere due north. He doesn't know how much he weighed exactly.

He hasn't stepped onto a scale in six years.
