Atlanta Falcons’ Dontari Poe Received a $125K Bonus Today Just For Not Being Fat

Denver Broncos v Kansas City Chiefs

Dontari Poe apparently has a diet and it’s making him a bunch of money.

The Atlanta Falcons nose tackle, much like Seahawks RB Eddie Lacy, had a weight clause in his contract and if he weighed under 340 pounds on Tuesday, he would receive his $125,000 bonus.


Poe signed a one-year, $8-million deal in March and he could make a ridiculous $475K in weight bonuses if he can get under 330 pounds by the start of training camp.

The two-time Pro Bowler was listed at 346 pounds prior to Tuesday’s weigh-in.
