Usually playing QB at Kentucky doesn’t launch your NFL career. But for one lucky, slightly overweight lad — it did. That young man’s name is Jared Lorenzen. His playing weight in college was 260 lbs. Yeah, that’s a large dude.
Lorenzen, 32, wasn’t drafted but was signed as a free agent by the New York Giants where he won a Super Bowl in a reserve roll. Lorenzen stuck around in the NFL for a few more years before he dabbled in arena football among other leagues.
Last night, while scrolling through my Twitter timeline, pictures of Lorenzen appeared. I couldn’t believe this guy was still playing football. Not only is he playing football at 320 lbs, but he is still playing QB and can move a little bit.
Can you believe Lorenzen, who is playing for the Northern Kentucky River Monsters of the Continental Indoor Football League, can still find the open man?
Just look at that form!
