WATCH: Former Giants QB Lorenzen, Now 320 Pounds, Resurfaces In Indoor League

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — You remember Jared Lorenzen.

A quarterback out of the University of Kentucky, he played for the Giants from 2004-2007, winning Super Bowl XLII as a backup to Eli Manning.

Called “The Hefty Lefty,” the 32-year-old was known during his brief stint in the NFL for his uncharacteristic weight at the quarterback position.

In his last year with the Giants, he was listed at a massive 285 pounds.

Lorenzen was signed and then waived by the Colts in 2008, but he’s been out of the league ever since.

Six years later, the signal-caller is playing for the Northern Kentucky River Monsters of the Continental Indoor Football League, and he looks bigger than ever.

On the River Monsters’ website, Lorenzen is listed as 6-foot-4 and 320 pounds.

But he’ll still got some skills!

Lorenzen previously played for the River Monsters in 2011. In 2009 he played for the Kentucky Horsemen — no longer in existence — of the AF2 league and and in 2013 he played for the Owensboro Rage — also no longer in existence — of the Continental Indoor Football League.

In 2012, Lorenzen served as the commissioner of the Ultimate Indoor Football League.

In his three seasons with the G-Men, the Covington, Kentucky, native completed four of eight passes for 28 yards. He never threw a touchdown or an interception and was sacked once.
