Mike Williams Is Large: The Photo Evidence


(Photos by Matt Terl)


Look, I know all the problems with this stunt. You will laugh that I'm a skinny undefined vegetarian disgrace to the profession of sports-writing. You will argue that journalists shouldn't really be posing for photos with athletes. You will wonder why I have such a terrible tan line. You will ask whether I'd be better off spending less time on Twitter and more time at the gym.

All true. But seeing photos of new Redskins tackle Mike Williams surrounded by other 300-pound giants doesn't really capture his size. I wanted you to understand in a more visceral manner. I'm about 6-feet-1/2-inch tall, and weigh about 185 pounds. Mike Williams has lost more than a third of my total weight since he began his football comeback. And he's sort of still a bit bigger than I am, all in all.

(Another photo follows. Read more about Williams and his weight loss here.)

Is that the same shirt as in your official headshot at the top of the page?

That's what happens when Ice meets George Michael, 20 years later.

Thanks for the laugh, Dan. Good for you for manning up and posing next to him. :-D
