Which Colts Players Have Gained and Lost Weight Since Last Year?

Posted Jun 9, 2014

Intro: The Colts are nearing the end of their nine-week offseason program. A few players have a different look to them in 2014. Who has gained and lost a significant amount of weight since last season?



INDIANAPOLIS – Offseason emphasis can differ from player to player.

For a veteran, taking off a few more days to let the aches and pains that have piled up over time heal might be one route.

For younger players still trying to get established, some added bulk could be needed to survive the grind that is an NFL season.

The Colts players have weighed in for 2014 and here’s a look at some of the more significant weight gains and losses from last season.

Daniel Adongo, 6-5 and 270 pounds (+23)

Analysis: The maturation of Adongo seems like it’s never ending. He’s mentioned that he’s up to 282 pounds which would mean he has put on nearly 40 pounds since coming to the United States for the first time late last July.



LaVon Brazill, 5-11 and 205 pounds (+11)

Analysis: Some good southern cooking allowed Brazill to put on around 10 pounds this offseason. Brazill is known as a speedster, but he wanted to add some weight to his frame and is pleased with how he feels during OTAs.



Jack Doyle, 6-6 and 267 pounds (+9)

Analysis: Doyle has always had the height and now, after a year in an NFL weight room, he’s put on nine pounds to put him as the biggest tight end on the Colts roster (Dwayne Allen-265 pounds).



Jerrell Freeman, 6-0 and 240 pounds (+8)

Analysis: Taking a look at Freeman and he certainly doesn’t look like your prototypical inside 3-4 linebacker. Of course, the film tells the real story. Freeman has added some weight to withstand the threshold of playing in the middle of a 3-4 scheme.

Khaled Holmes, 6-3 and 309 pounds (-10)

Analysis: A healthy offseason has allowed Holmes to slim down a bit and he’s admitted that he feels in much better shape and comfortable at this weight.



Montori Hughes, 6-4 and 350 pounds (+15)

Analysis: When Hughes was drafted, which position he lined up at was a mystery. His current frame certainly falls in line with a traditional 3-4 nose tackle.



Arthur Jones, 6-3 and 337 pounds (+22)

Analysis: Don’t read too much into Jones’ current weight. He said last week on local radio that he likes to be heavier during OTAs before dropping 10-15 pounds once training camp (and the pads) arrives.



Henoc Muamba, 6-0 and 242 pounds (+12)

Analysis: Muamba has very similar measurables to that of Freeman and in coming over from the CFL, the new Colts inside linebacker has beefed up a bit to ready for the NFL.



Jeris Pendleton, 6-2 and 323 pounds (-11)

Analysis: Pendleton should not be overlooked along the defensive line. He played quite a few snaps late in the season for the Colts and has shed nearly a dozen pounds to prepare for 2014.



Sheldon Price, 6-2 and 198 pounds (+18)

Analysis: After a year on the Colts practice squad (Price was called up late in the season), Price didn’t mess around this offseason. He says he’s closer to 200-205 pounds and feels that allows him to be better equipped to shed blocks and aid in the run game.



Da’Rick Rogers, 6-3 and 215 pounds (+7)

Analysis: Rogers wanted to "tone" his body this offseason, while trying to become a more precise route runner.
