The NFL Experts at Scout.com report that new Falcons guard Toniu Fonoti has looked good thus far in off-season conditioning workouts, per Falcons head coach Bobby Petrino.
Fonoti’s weight ballooned up to 400 pounds last off-season when he was with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Fonoti is listed at 350 pounds, but has had issues with his weight in the past. Praise from Petrino seemingly indicates that he is in better shape this year as opposed to last year.
Fonoti is expected to push for a starting job at left guard this year. Right now, the starter would be Tyson Clabo, who started ten games last year, all but one of which came at right guard.
