The St. Louis Rams added some, um, size to their offensive line this offseason in the form of 400-pound Terrell Brown out of Ole Miss.

The tackle, who was officially listed as 385 pounds by Ole Miss, tipped the scales in St. Louis at 403 pounds, according to head coach Jeff Fisher.

"We had him in for a rookie tryout and he had some issues we had to clear up from a physical standpoint. But we put that behind us. We worked him out on both sides of the ball and decided that his best position would be offensive tackle," Fisher stated.

Brown certainly has size, but experience, not so much. He played in only ten games in two seasons at Mississippi after a redshirt year and an injury during his two JUCO seasons.

Brown's sheer size forced NFL.com to try to recall anyone in the league larger than Brown, which is an accomplishment in itself.
