Lutui Blows It

Posted on: June 25, 2010 3:05 pm

The Arizona Cardinals were irked by Deuce Lutui’s refusal to promptly sign his RFA tender all offseason. The fifth-year guard wanted a long-term deal. The Cards’ stance was, “Sorry, not this year, and not before we take care of Darnell Dockett (which hasn’t happened yet, by the way). And P.S., Deuce, we recommend you get to the OTA’s asap because we both know that, when left on your own, you tend to get fat.”

It appears the Cardinals were right. According to Mike Jurecki of Xtra Sports 910 in Phoenix, Lutui, who had his once-secure starting job jeopardized after the signing of Alan Faneca (Faneca’s arrival shifted left guard Reggie Wells to Lutui’s right guard spot) reportedly weighs 396 pounds. That’s roughly 60 pounds – or one-and-a-half Olsen Twin – over his listed weight.
