Football (and 325 pounds) is not good for your health.

Sux, probably a heart attack. I wonder how well he kept up with his health after the game, a lot of these guys lose tons of weight (and they need to). I also wonder about steroids with him, or any of these guys really...

Absolutely great player, one of the relatively few Guards in the HOF. Tragic loss for his family.

As I think about it it might not have been him but some other Dallas OL. But I think it showed them all eating it. Players have come on long way on what they eat, drink and overalll lifestyle

It was Nate Newton.

"So he’s just the kind of guy Jay Khorrami, owner-manager of the Coppell Deli, a favorite lunch-time hangout tor many Cowboys players, is looking for. Six years ago, when the team was struggling through its infamous 1-15 season, Khorrami approached Dallas offensive lineman Nate Newton, who at the time lived across the street from him, and invited him to visit the deli. “I told him I’d fix him something that would cheer him up,” Khorrami recalls,

What resulted was the creation of a sandwich that to this day is the top-seller on the deli’s menu, a behemoth now named in honor of former Cowboys tight end Daniel Stubbs, who found it to be such a perfect meal that he ate one or more daily during his tenure in Dallas. “The Stubbs,” as the sandwich is called, includes eggs, sausage, bacon and cheese, and is served between two thick slices of buttered Texas toast. Cooper Clinic dietitians estimate one Stubbs packs 1,553 calories and 110 grams of fat."
