There haven’t been many 6-foot-10 players in NFL history, but the St. Louis Rams are hoping their latest acquisition will stick around. The Rams signed a behemoth offensive tackle on Tuesday, Ole Miss’ Terrell Brown. Brown is 6-foot-10, 388 pounds, but played sparingly with the Rebels during his three-year Ole Miss career. Brown played just two games in 2012 at offensive tackle and eight games in 2011 as a defensive tackle. The tallest player in NFL history is Richard Sligh, a 7-foot defensive tackle for the Raiders in 1967. The tallest current NFL player is 6-foot-9 Jared Gaither, who played for the Chargers in 2012 but is currently a free agent. Brown’s pro day measurables are nowhere near as impressive as Gaither’s were coming out of Maryland, though. Brown ran a 5.77-second 40-yard dash with a 5.44-second 20-yard shuttle and 8.93-second three-cone drill. Gaither ran the 40 in 4.98 seconds and had a 4.49-second 20-yard shuttle and 7.12-second three-cone time. Brown may benefit from the proposed partnership between the WWE and NFL to funnel football players into pro wrestling’s developmental system. There are far more 6-foot-10 wrestlers than NFL players. Brown’s most notable highlight at Ole Miss wasn’t on the field at all. It was on the sidelines when he sat down and crushed a plastic folding chair. Check it out in all of its slow-motion glory below.
