Better Than Diet Pills?

Richard Dent

I’m not much on the history of the league. What’s happening in the moment interests me more. But I found this article from Brad Biggs at the Chicago Tribune about the 1983 draft to be really interesting. Here he quotes then Bears scout Vince Tobin on eighth round steal Richard Dent:

“We had a combine that year, but he weighed 227 pounds and he had poor teeth. He couldn’t retain weight or anything and the first thing we did after we drafted him is we took him to a dentist and they corrected that and, hell, he started developing and gaining weight.”

That reminds me. I really need to make a dentist appointment. But I also really need to lose a weight…
