Jared Lorenzen is a 320 lb gun-slinging River Monster

No folks, this is not a joke: former Kentucky Wildcats and New York Giants quarterback Jared Lorenzen is playing football again. I repeat, this is not a joke.

Lorenzen is currently suiting up for the Northern Kentucky River Monsters (has there ever been a more fitting name for the Hefty Lefty?) of the Continental Indoor Football League. He’s listed as the River Monsters quarterback, although his body resembles that of an offensive lineman. According to the team roster, Lorenzen checks in at a svelte 320 pounds.

Talk about for the love of the game. The Pillsbury Throwboy just wants to fire that pigskin.
