Bills NT Torell Troup Says He's Up To 326 Pounds

As a rookie last season, Buffalo Bills nose tackle Torell Troup was used as a run-down defender, and typically only in 4-3 looks or in relief of starting nose tackle Kyle Williams. Drafted in the second round of the 2010 NFL Draft to eventually be the anchor of the Bills' 3-4 defense, Troup - one of the youngest players on the roster last year - did not have the type of impact many were hoping for in his first NFL season.

GM Buddy Nix, head coach Chan Gailey and the Bills organization remains high on Troup's potential, however. Troup, for his part, is working his tail off this off-season to keep himself in shape - and it's paid off, as he reported on Twitter last night that he is now up to 326 pounds. He was listed at 315 in his rookie season.

Troup is one of the more interesting Bills players to follow on Twitter, as he routinely posts pictures and videos of his workout sessions with his (very physically intimidating) father. He also recently posted a message to Bills fans worried about the former Central Florida star not realizing his potential.

"Fans i jus wanna say thank u for being patient with me during my transition. I will be worth the wait and will be everythin you guys want in a NT," Troup wrote.
