UPDATE: Anyone else feeling like this Abiamiri thing was just a tad bit undersold until, oh, a couple days after the draft? I'll have to go back and look at the old transcripts.
Bounty just emailed about this.
Philadelphia Eagles guard Max Jean-Gilles had lap-band surgery in an attempt to keep his weight under control. Eagles coach Andy Reid told reporters about the procedure and said Jean-Gilles was held out of practice at the minicamp that opened today.
And it's cool to have this thing in an occupation where people are paid to beat the tar out of you for three (check that, also count practice) hours each week?
MJG's weight has been an issue for a long time, but have we heard of any other athletes doing this while they were still active?
