    DAMIEN DROPS A LOAD (OF WEIGHT)

    After a six-week stint in Duke University's weight-loss program, Lions center Damien Woody has dropped 31 pounds, according to Mike O'Hara of the Detroit News.

    Based on Woody's admission that he ballooned to a high of 378 pounds, the veteran center is now at 347. He plans to continue shedding the excess until he gets down to 315.

    Woody suffered a foot injury in the fifth game of the 2006 season, and did not return. He was rumored to be on the way out in Detroit, but his effort to get in shape could help to save him.

    Signed by the Lions in 2004, Woody is scheduled to earn $4.5 million in base salary in 2007."

    Is he turning over a new leaf? Good for him.

    Good for Damien, while he proved to be lazy in Detroit he was a quality Patriot who worked hard to get paid. I am glad to see he has not given up on football entirely.

    Do you think his wife had something to do with this? Was $4.5 enough of an incentive?

    That type of weight definitely contributes to injuries

    He's still fat. Good move letting him go. Especially at what it would have cost.

    I wonder what book he was reading while he was taking a dump that big.

    He was a lardass here, too. That's why the Pats were content to let him go -- that and the fact that he can't shotgun snap, which is a pretty big problem for a center in a passing offense.
