House stands 6-foot-11, weighs 500 pounds and wears a 6XL jersey. For comparison's sake, William "The Refrigerator" Perry, tipped the scales at 382. The Fridge was smaller than House by a whole cheerleader -- 118 pounds.







He's too old, of course. But an entertaining thought nevertheless!

WOW, 35. He better start losing it fast. 5 more years and he could be dead.
He would only be useful to any NFL in a short yardage situation. That's too specialized for a roster spot.

Besides, there's no way the Saints have any pants that big.

Then we sign him to a 3 year contract.


Line him up infront of Shanle, with his mass we do not have to worry about Shanly doing or not doing anything.

The hurricane cone of uncertainty will never fall around Shanle.

Thats a big SOB. The biggest guy I ever played was 6´9 450lbs and that already was a (wide) load to handle.

I do commend him for at least playing football instead of sitting at home and letting that size go to waste.

With all the good food we have in New Orleans he would be 550 lbs or dead before he suit up.
