Fonoti off to a good start

April 2nd, 2007

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.

    falcon fans, prepare for a let down with “fat toni” (simpson fans rejoice)

    he was a huge (punn intended) dissapointment to charger fans for his 2.01 years of playing. when hes right, he has all the tools. however, most of the time, he is just a 400lb sloth with family problems. the first time vick scrambles around and reverses his field Fonoti is going straight to the bench with a fake hamstring injury…..he’ll have marks on his face from the oxygen mask!
