For many athletes, retirement means no more year-round training, and getting fat on the couch.
For many NFL linemen, it's the opposite. Years of keeping on as much weight as possible to battle in the trenches takes a toll, and they want to get back to being at a healthier size.
Such is the case for Jeff Saturday, who looks a whole lot different than the last time we saw him on a football field in the Pro Bowl.
Saturday, the longtime Colts center who was with Green Bay last year, took in Sunday's Colts-Bills preseason game and it was shocking to see the picture of him from Indianapolis Star photographer Matt Kryger on Twitter. Here's a side-by-side comparison:
A couple weeks ago, ESPN's Ed Werder reported Saturday was 230-240 pounds, after weighing a listed 295 last season. That's a lot of weight to drop in about six months, and good for Saturday. We can also rule out any idea of a NFL comeback, unless he wants to play safety or something.
