Damien Woody and Scott Mitchell have been announced as cast members on the upcoming season of “The Biggest Loser.” I’m sure this isn’t how two former NFL players thought they would be making headlines after their playing days, but when life hands you lemons…I guess you squeeze them over pork rinds and eat those damn things.
Woody played guard for the New England Patriots, Detroit Lions and New York Jets, made the Pro Bowl in 2002 and won two Super Bowls with the Patriots (XXXVI, XXXVIII). He played 173 games over 12 seasons before retiring after the 2010 campaign. The 36-year-old is listed at 6-3 and has already ballooned up to 388 pounds. His final listed playing weight was 330.
