St. Louis Rams rookie Terrell Brown is a big man. Some may even call him the biggest. Brown, who was signed by the Rams earlier this week, stands at 6-foot-10, which is tall even for a lineman, and was said to be about 385 pounds. As it turns out, the monstrous lineman actually weighs a tad over 400 pounds, at least per Rams head coach Jeff Fisher, making him the heaviest player currently in the NFL. “Actually, we weighed him in at 403,” Fisher told reporters on Thursday. “We had him in for the tryout and he had some issues that we had to clear up from a physical standpoint. But he got that put behind us.” A man that height might seem like a better fit for a spot on the basketball court, but he instead used his size along the defensive line for four years at Mississippi. Fisher is trying to find an innovative way to use Brown to his advantage, and the team has even been experimenting with him on the offensive side of the ball. “We worked him out on both sides of the ball, defensive line and offensive line, and we felt like his best position would be right tackle,” Fisher said. “[Rams offensive line coach Paul Boudreau] said he’d love to have him. He’s a defensive lineman that we’ve converted to offensive lineman.” The Rams did add former Miami Dolphins tackle and No. 1-overall pick Jake Long during the offseason, but a little — well, maybe not so little — more help on the offensive line certainly couldn’t hurt Sam Bradford. Oh, and no Terrell Brown story is complete without at least some mention of the infamous chair-breaking video. So, here you go. Have a question for Luke Hughes?
