“The best play in football is when the fat guy gets the ball and runs with it!” is the top rated comment on this first video, with over 120 thumbs-up. This post includes more than 2,080 lbs of 100% pure fat dudes:
We’ll begin with 340 lb. Bears nose tackle Keith Traylor, taking it 67 yards:
And Packers defensive tackle BJ Raji, at 338 lbs., taking an interception to the house in the playoffs (this also doubles as a great celebration dance):
Raji also has one rushing touchdown, subbing in as a fullback on offense.
And who could forget, at a lithe 310 lbs., Patriots offensive lineman Dan Connolly and his unlikely 71-yard kickoff return one Monday night?
Finally, Patriots war daddy Vince Wilfork. Wikipedia lists him at 325 lbs, but I would be more likely to believe 425. The first one in slow motion:
BONUS: here’s video of 317 lb. defensive tackle Fred Robbins, running with the ball after an interception when he was a New York Giant, but the video kind of sucks. But when you have a guy like 375 lb. nose tackle Ted Washington, however, even a video of him just running in spring practice doesn’t suck:
I’m not the only one to think this is awesome. Others have posted about it here and here. The first link even had a good one I missed, at 315 lbs, 49ers offensive tackle Joe Staley making a catch for a first down:
