When you think of great athletes you think of men or women who are ripped with muscles and in great shape.
You usually turn on the T.V. and think, "Wow, I wish my body looked half as good as theirs."
Well these are 10 athletes that do not really fit into that mold. They are stars when they really shouldn't be.
These are the athletes you look at and think, "Wow, how does that guy have a job in professional sports."
Sometime these are the players that make you feel better about the beer gut hanging over your belt. For this list, I have not included athletes that play "big man" positions.
That includes offensive and defensive lineman, as well as sumo wrestlers, among other things. These are the Top 10 "skilled" athletes who are overweight.
I have listed the people on this list by what they have done in the sports world to go along with how big they are. I have looked at individual stats and if they have won any titles in their career.
Remember, this isn't just a how fat are you list. It is a how big are you and how successful are you list. Being a Big Guy myself, I hold these guys near and dear to my heart. So let's get it started.
