Terrell Brown measures 6'10, 403 pounds, but just how big is the Rams newest offensive lineman?

The biggest story in St. Louis right now (non-Cardinals edition)? Easy. It's the Rams' new offensive tackle: Terrell Brown, who tipped the scales at 403 pounds. He also measures 6'10, so, yeah, it's kind of a "big" story ... pun intended. But here's the thing, 403 pounds is just a number. We need some context.

Metric conversion, please

400 pounds would be 181.4 kg.

Brown can't be fairly called obese. He is 6'10 and plays football. Less than half the adults in Missouri get a basic amount of physical activity. For the non-player population, 400 pounds would be obese, and Missouri knows all about that as the 11th most obese state in the USA. According to the CDC, 30.5 percent of Missouri adults are obese. 14.4 percent of adolescents in the Show Me State are obese. 13.6 percent of children here are obese.
