    MMQB.com's Peter King caught up with Jordan Gross, the former Carolina Panthers left tackle who retired this offseason. And he noted that Gross is about 235 pounds, down from about 305 at the end of last season. Gross actually looks like he's lost a lot more than 70 pounds.

    The crazy thing is, Gross told King he's not trying to lose weight. He's just eating right and lightly exercising.

    And to listen to Gross talking about why he retired, we're reminded that with all the health concerns for current and former NFL players, men doing everything they can to stay at or above 300 pounds is one that doesn't get enough attention.

    Not good from an egotistical workout person standpoint. Likely better for his overall health to carry as little weight on his abused joints as possible

    No. Not because I don't enjoy it but because the people who do are usually so annoying to be around.

    Tell me how having muscle hurts your body at all.

    I'm not talking about lifting, I'm talking about the "do you even lift, bro?" He looks like he still has plenty of muscle, just not covered in 100lbs of fat. He looks like an average mid 30s male.

    He looks small to me, but I compare people to IFBB competitors so I can understand the different view you have

    If you have been 300+ lbs and playing football for years, your knees have taken a beating. Muscles are weight. More weight = more pressure on your knees.

    More generally, many people who lift have lame cardiovascular conditioning. Just being muscular doesn't mean being fit in a way that might extend your life.
