Tide’s Cody, Arenas looking to size up in the NFL

It is Senior Bowl week in Mobile, and that includes the homoerotic art of measuring and weighing players. (I’m so glad I don’t have to cover that!) One big topic was the weight and conditioning of NT Terrence Cody. Javier Arenas doesn’t have any questions about his conditioning. Arenas impressed with both his “chiseled” look, and dual-threat talent.

According to the AP (read the entire story embedded below): Crimson Tide coach Nick Saban got a big hug from Mount Cody after Monday’s initial practice, but his first question was the same that many had wondered leading up to the week: “Why don’t you just tell me what you weighed in at?”

“I weighed in at 310,” Cody said, grinning. Once approaching 400 pounds in junior college, Cody was listed at 354 during the season. He often came out of the game on third downs and passing situations in his two seasons with the Crimson Tide, making stamina a question mark.

“Everybody here was asking how much Cody weighs,” Saban said. “I said, ‘Wait until he turns around and I can see him from the front, I’ll give you a pretty good guesstimate.’ I said 368, so I missed him by two pounds.”
