Cardinals DL Nick Eason has dropped 40 pounds to 282 after taking up boxing and changing his diet this offseason.
"I realized that I could probably help myself and extend my career if I lost a little weight," Eason said. The difference is huge. I feel a lot quicker now. I have a lot more endurance." The 32-year-old graded out poorly as a run defender in 2011, according to Pro Football Focus.
