Jared Lorenzen Compares Himself to Jameis Winston, Writes 'Bigger' Is Better

Jared Lorenzen knows what it’s like to be a large man among large men. 

The former NFL backup and Kentucky Wildcats quarterback is a hillock of humanity with a mortar for an arm, and for the last decade or so, he quarterbacked professionally at one level or another despite a body type that defies all conventional norms. 

So when a picture of a surprisingly robust looking Jameis Winston emerged on the Internet over the weekend, Lorenzen opted to weigh in on the matter as only he can. 

Writing “#biggerisbetter,” the 6’4”, 315-pound former signal-caller asked his followers who looks better—him or the 2013 Heisman Trophy winner?

As for the photo of Winston, appearances probably don’t line up with reality. 

Winston’s quarterback coach, George Whitfield, cleared the air regarding the picture after it made the rounds on the Internet. Whitfield says Winston has actually lost weight while training to make the jump to the next level.

“He’s lost about 12-15 pounds,” Whitfield told USA Today’s Jim Corbett. “When you hear stuff about Jameis, the weight and he’s getting fat…what do people think, that I’ve been golfing while he’s been playing Call of Duty?”

“He’s been working his butt off the last five weeks to make sure he’s going to make a tough decision for somebody,” Whitfield told Corbett. “He looks good. I like where he is. Focused. Driven. He’s enjoying the process.”

Just remember: The last time we thought a guy had been sneaking extra spare ribs, that person turned out to be an unstoppable monstrosity. Camera angles can lie. That's all I'm saying.

Dan is on Twitter. He would like all the spare ribs.
