Video: Jared Lorenzen Still Playing Pro Football
Former Kentucky quarterback Jared Lorenzen is generously listed at 320 pounds and is now 32 years old, but he’s still getting the job done as a quarterback.
The legendary UK QB known by nicknames such as the “Hefty Lefty,” “Pillsbury Throwboy” and “Round Mound of Touchdown” is currently playing for the Northern Kentucky River Monsters of the Continental Indoor Football League and showed during Monday night’s season opener he’s still got surprising moves just like he did in Lexington. Lorenzen was actually on another CIFL roster last year but the team folded with two weeks left to go in the season.
The River Monsters won the game, 36-20, as Lorenzen completed 23-of-37 passes for 183 yards and 3 TDs. A previous NFL backup, Lorenzen won a Super Bowl XLII ring with the New York Giants.
Do we sense an NFL comeback?
