The NFL has lifted Giants RB Andre Brown's four-game suspension.
Brown was accused of violating the league's PED policy, but he only tested positive for Adderall, which he's been using since he came into the league. Brown, 25, used the offseason to gain weight in an effort to become the Giants' "next Brandon Jacobs." He broke in as a 224-pound back, and is up to 240.
Giants TE Martellus Bennett ballooned from 265 pounds to 291 for the start of OTAs.
"That's probably a little too big for his legs to carry," quipped TEs coach Mike Pope. It's a hardly a surprise that Bennett is sitting out practices with hamstring issues. Bennett has breakout potential in an offense that has maximized mediocre talents at the position, but he can't afford to miss the reps in a new system. The JaMarcus Russell-sized weight gain will do nothing to quell concerns that football isn't Bennett's top priority.
Now IMO The Brown weight I'm hoping is muscle which could be a good thing but also slow down his speed.
The Bennett weight gain KILLS ME! That is pure laziness and fat. I bet he didn't even work out once. here is a great opportunity and your blowing it. Instead of getting invites for Dancing with the Stars your gonna appear on the Biggest Loser. Dumbass!
