NFL offensive linemen are always some of the biggest men in the entire league. They are literally paid to be big and use their unique skill to stop strong men from sacking the QB.

Once their careers are over, it is not really healthy to keep so much weight on, so many of them go and lose wight.

Count Orlando Franklin among them.

Franklin played seven seasons in the NFL as an interior lineman from 2011-17 for the Denver Broncos, San Diego Chargers and Washington.

He was listed at 6-foot-6 and 315 pounds, but you can now bring that weight down considerably since his retirement.

He did not list his new weight, but you can tell from the pictures it is well below 300 pounds.
