It was reported last June that his weight had fallen to somewhere around 250. I'd suspect he'd be anywhere now between 250 and 275.
But if he were to return to the league as a tight end, he'd be a great blocking tight end. I'd love to have him instead of Eric Beverly.
This brings me back to the issue of steroids Pudge. It's inevitable that some guys that were usuing roids would lose weight and it's assumable that Turley is one of those guys. I was chastised at the other place last off season for suggesting players would become lighter because of the testing for roids and Congress' attention given to the problem recently. Turley vindicates my point perfectly. Watch for ALL NFL teams to go to lighter O-lines and then we'll know for certain. There'll always be the 330 pound fat guy like Warren Sapp or the Goose,...but in time we'll see more and more 285 pound guys manning both lines, I do believe.
And yeah,...Beverly, a former O-lineman was a disappointment in what he was chosen to do,...block. Turley would be an improvement, agreed.
