On Tuesday, The Athletic's Mark Kaboly reported that Pittsburgh Steelers running back Najee Harris was up to 244 pounds, which would have been a major increase from his listed weight of 232 pounds last season.
Harris denied that he's gained 12 pounds in the offseason, however:
In Dov Kleiman's defense, the Steelers didofficially list Harris as 232 pounds. If Harris' playing weight last season was in fact 240 pounds, it wasn't public knowledge.
Either way, a four-pound increase would be far less notable than a 12-pound one.
As a rookie, Harris rushed for 1,200 yards and seven touchdowns. If he added four more pounds of muscle this offseason, that isn't great news for NFL defenses.
