What's been his max playing weight? I read he dropped weight when he was on meds. But is he 3-4 DE heavy?
His max weight was around 265-270. Even though he played some 5-tech at ND, he's never been in the 285-295 range. Now that he's dropped in weight to about 249, asking him to put on 30-35 lbs is a bit much. I think it's more practical to get him back to 265 and use him as a stand-up rusher in odd fronts, or put his hand in the dirt in even fronts.
