Lockout-Day 4


Man, who didn't love the fridge? He was the epitome of "space eating DT" that people like to bestow on any player over 300 pounds. Perry literally ate space. Then went off in search of other galaxies for dessert. He weighted as much as 382 pounds at his heaviest. Maybe in his right leg. He weighed well over 400 pounds.

He was a great D-lineman, but he gained fame due to his offensive prowess. His career totals of 5 yards rushing and 2 TDs rank 43,937 on the all-time NFL list. (That is completely made up) But they were memorable. So memorable that there are no youtube videos of his runs. Here's a picture.

There aren't any two-way players in the NFL anymore. The occasional Randy Moss INT on a Hail Mary aside, Devin Hester is the last example I can think of. It's safe to say there will never be another player like "The Fridge" but that doesn't mean we can't watch him promote McDonalds' new Mc D.L.T.
