Former NFL offensive lineman Geoff Schwartz who has been very active on Twitter since he retired posted last night a story about his short 2016 season in Detroit.
He told Twitter about a story when he was coming into his final NFL season that he was 1 pound overweight. He was 341 instead of 340. The Lions asked him to be 340 and not a pound more.
Schwartz last 13 pounds and 3% body fat between OTAs and training camp.
He was still fined by Bob Quinn of the Lions.
Guess what though? If he was asked to be 340 pounds and not a pound more, that doesn’t seem like something to complain about. Like someone said on Twitter, if the owner of a call dealership and says to sell 100 cars and you can go on a paid for vacation and when you’re done you only sold 99, you won’t get that paid for vacation.
Former Lion Travis Swanson stuck up for the team on this one:
What’s your thought? 1 pound too much? or 1 pound shouldn’t matter?
