In other fat-athlete news...

This from Fanball.com
Lions general manager Matt Millen acknowledged on Monday that wide receiver Mike Williams is overweight. "Aren't we all?" Millen told a Detroit Free Press reporter who asked whether Williams was carrying extra weight. "Am I concerned about it? Not right now. The approach right now is pretty good." Williams finished last season with 29 receptions for 350 yards and a touchdown.
Does anyone else find this absolutely hilarious? I'm really curious to know what the current "approach" is for Williams. If I'm a Lions fan, I'm sending L.A. Weight Loss pamphlets and informational DVDs to the Lions front office. Williams was ridiculously slow last year. We've said it before but we'll say it again, how does Millen have a job?

Offensive Tackles have weight problems. Normal people have weight problems. Truck drivers, security guards, plumbers. Wide receivers don't have weight problems. First round picks don't have weight problems.
