Bryant McKinnie Says the Vikings Lied About His Weight

Bryant McKinnie is getting the whole weight thing squared away. Reports a couple weeks ago said McKinnie was once again struggling with excessive poundage, opening the possibility that the Ravens might dump him the same way the Vikes did last offseason, but McKinnie now says he’s down to 350 after topping out at 360 before voluntary workouts.

Bryant’s weight-loss secret? Being less lazy. And not eating as much ham (or whatever he normally stuffs his face with). “Once you just be consistent and keep doing it, you start feeling better and better each day every time you go out and do it,” McKinnie said. “Add in the healthy meals and stuff, it definitely makes it a lot better because you’re putting good fuel into your body.”

A regular old Jack LaLanne, this guy.

Oh, and about that whole business last training camp when he showed up around 400 and the Vikes decided to let him loose? McKinnie says he was never around 400. He says the Vikings made that up.

“I never was [that heavy],” McKinnie told reporters. “That was exaggerated by the Vikings.”

Sure. And I suppose those servers on that boat exaggerated that story about you getting a hummer from a stripper in front of them. So glad this guy isn’t our problem anymore. Have a nice season Bryant.
