    He played at about 180 last year. This year his goal is to be at 195 with 3% body fat. He will hit training camp at about 200.

    The added hitting power will be good, as long as he doesn't lose any speed. I think it is a good move for him.

    if he gets it down to the same level of body fat, I think he should be just as fast.... maybe even fater in straight-line speed.

    Thanks Lotza!

    I agree.

    As long as it's all muscle. You see track sprint-stars, they are build with a lot of upper body strength.

    Thanks to PPE for the sig.

    Vikings | Smoot gaining weight for upcoming season
    Wed, 5 Jul 2006 08:19:32 -0700

    Mike Wobschall, of Vikings.com, reports Minnesota Vikings CB Fred Smoot is looking to play the 2006 season at 195 pounds, 15 pounds heavier than he was last season. Smoot wants to add the weight to become more durable and to be able to make stronger tackles. "The style of defense that we're going to play this year is going to require me and Antoine [Winfield] to make more tackles and I don't want to wear down as the season goes along," Smoot said. "And then coming off of an almost season-ending injury with my shoulder I don't want that to trouble me at all so I had to bulk up."

    Good, as long as he becomes more durable.. He is mad injury prone. I hope he can make it through this season fully.. It's a crapshoot pretty much after that for corners for us

    That's good..

    But he can't help the Vikes if the Vikes don't help him..

    If we use him better than we did last year, we'll be in good shape.
