The smiley face indicates that Kennedy is happy about weighing 304 pounds. Maybe he should hook Bryant McKinnie up with his trainer.
Kennedy, a one-time first round pick who became regarded as a bust, was acquired by the Vikings in 2008 as insurance against Pat Williams being suspended for Starcaps. The suspension never materialized and Kennedy seemed to be settling in as a decent 2nd string tackle until 2010 when he was deactivated for several games and made his irritation at this known to the media.
As a result of his ineffectiveness and griping, Kennedy was one of the first guys cut by the Vikings after the new CBA went into effect. The Vikings are quite happy to go forth with Remi Ayodele and Fred Evans rotating at nose tackle.
