Scott Mitchell and Damien Woody to be on "The Biggest Loser."


Recommended Posts

Irony in the title aside... 366 pounds for Mitchell and 388 for Woody. Whoa!

Ex-Lion Scott Mitchell, at 366 pounds, to be on 'The Biggest Loser' | The Detroit News

Scott Mitchell was once a big acquisition for the Detroit Lions, a left-handed quarterback charged with engineering a high-powered offense.

Now, well, Mitchell’s just big.

Mitchell, the Lions quarterback from 1994-98, is one of 20 contestants on the new season of NBC’s “The Biggest Loser,” which returns 8 p.m. Sept. 11, and he’s well north of his playing weight of 240 pounds.

Mitchell checks in at 366.

He won’t be the only former Lion on the show, either. He’ll be joined by Damien Woody, an offensive lineman in Detroit from 2004-07.

Mitchell’s best season in Detroit was his second with the Lions, in 1995, when he threw for 4,338 yards and 32 TDs to help lead the Lions to a playoff berth, where they lost to the Eagles, 58-37, in a wild-card game.

He spent 11 seasons in the NFL, including stops in Miami, Baltimore and Cincinnati. Now 46, Mitchell is coping with sleep apena and high-blood pressure, according to his bio on the show’s website, and has seen his weight balloon because of “busy life and poor diet.”

Woody, who weighs 388 pounds, played 12 seasons in the NFL.
