Jared Lorenzen nearly shut down the Internet this week when pictures and video of the 300-plus pound, former New York Giants’ quarterback surfaced of him playing quarterback for the Northern Kentucky River Monsters of the Continental Indoor Football League. In wake of his recent jolt back into the sports spotlight, the man who embraces nicknames such as the “Round Mound of Touchdown”, “Pillsbury Throwboy” and “Hefty Lefty” joined SVP and Russilo on ESPN Radio.
Along with discussing his weight and love for the game of football, the show’s hosts Scott Van Pelt and Ryen Russilo joked with Lorenzen on the possibility that the Cleveland Browns would give him a call due to their dire need for a quarterback and Lorenzen’s return to popularity.
“I would go there in a heartbeat,” said Lorenzen. “Come on Brownies give me a call.”
It’s been six years since Lorenzen last wore an NFL uniform, but it looks like “Feast Mode” can still teach Browns’ quarterbacks a thing or two about pocket presence.
The self described 322-pound (post two burritos from Mo’s Southwest Grill) former Mr. Football in the state of Kentucky looks nimble sliding up in the pocket and finding his receiver for a touchdown.
