    Beefy OL Fonoti draws praise from Saban

    "He's a big'n," a smiling Saban said. "Wide-bodies, man, that's really what you're looking for to play inside [on the offensive line]. He's got pretty good feet, and he's a pretty strong guy."

    Listed at 350 pounds, it's believed the 6-foot-4 Fonoti is the heaviest player ever signed to the Dolphins' 53-man roster. Fonoti also ranks among the beefiest players in NFL history, reportedly weighing 404 pounds when traded from San Diego to Minnesota in 2005.


    Looks like we might have our own version of "The Fridge"

    What was his playing weight when he went to the Pro Bowl in SD?

    I would be VERY surprised if he's still on the roster after the season.

    Pretty sure his playing weight was 350, they said he shed 35lbs of the 404 he gained before SD let him go so that would make him 369lbs right now.

    Hey Nasty:

    Yeah--Ive been lurking but posted this the other day (big win vs. Bears)
    http://www.finheaven.com/boardvb2/sh...d.php?t=168927

    Fonoti never made the Pro-Bowl while he was with us. Hopefully, he has matured and realized just how FORTUNATE he is to have another chance at a career.

    IF NOT - he won't survive with Saban / Hudson very long.

    well i think saban brought him in for injury purposes, the way our line is blocking now is just down right scary, first 4 games 21 sacks, last 5 games 5 or 6 sacks
    and there doin a dec job run blocking
