Rams release plus-sized rookie, expected to sign Will Witherspoon
Posted by Josh Alper on July 18, 2013, 10:29 AM EDT
Earlier this offseason, MDS brought you a story about the Rams switching gargantuan undrafted rookie Terrell Brown to the offensive line after he played on the defensive line in college.

Brown, who stands 6-foot-10 and weighed 403 pounds when he joined the Rams, wont be making an impact for the team on either side of the ball this season, though. The Rams dropped Brown from the roster with a waived-injured designation, which Jim Thomas of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports is due to an injury he had before signing with the team. The team also waived linebacker Phillip Steward, who tore his Achilles tendon while rehabbing a back injury at the Rams facility last week.

Thomas also reports that the Rams are expected to fill one of the newly opened roster spots with veteran linebacker Will Witherspoon. Witherspoon was one of several linebackers who visited with the team in June and spent all or some of four seasons with the Rams earlier in his career.

Witherspoon also played for Rams coach Jeff Fisher and other members of the coaching staff during his time with the Titans, which appears to have helped open the door to a training camp invite.

Pick him and IR him for the season. 6-10 and 400 lbs would pretty good on our field goal block team me thinks.

    Depending on the nature of his injury, worth a peek. If he can't at least physically work out, forget it...

There is a reason there are no 6'10 players and also a reason there are no 400lbs players.

Is it because there is only a tiny fraction of the population that possesses those attributes?

This may not be the right guy but 20 yrs ago you could've said that's the reason there are no 6'6" 300lb guys.

In the next 20 years a player this size will run under a 5 second 40

Size means nothing if you cant move fluidly. Agility and acceleration are often compromosed in athletes this size. Had a kid on my high school team that was almost the exact same size but often got beat by guys half his size because he was unable to effectively get his hands on people quick enough. Dont know kuch about this kid here, but its likely a weakness of his too. Otherwise he wouldve been a top pick.
