Not The Biggest Fan Of These Kinda Post Because I’ve Always Been Self Conscious About My Body And Have Always Had Body Image Issues. But Here It Goes...Since I Can Remember, I’ve ALWAYS Been The “Bigger Kid” or “Fat Kid.” Ive Always Wanted That “Cut Up, Shredded 6 Pack” Body or To Be “Skinny.” I’m Samoan So Food Has Always Been A Big Part Of My Life and that was just one of the first excuses. Football, Especially Playing Offensive Line Helped Mask All Of That Behind Another Excuse. But That Excuse Turned Into Another One That Lead To Even More. At 343lbs, After Being Cut From The Miami Dolphins and Just Severely Depressed, I Decided To Take My Health Into My Own Hands and Chose to NEVER Give Myself That Excuse Ever Again. With The Help Of My Brother @pendletonperformance & My Keto Coach @coachtaragarrison, I Was Able To Drop Down To 287 lbs and built back up to 303lbs. Still Have So Much Work To Do, But This Is At Least A Step In The Right Direction. At The End Of The Day, You Alone Are Responsible For Your Own Happiness and Health. The Hardest But Simplest Part, Is Having The Belief In Yourself, To Leap..
A former fifth-round pick in the 2017 NFL Draft, he was a physically strong developmental project for Miami but was waived before the 2018 season. After finding a spot on the Dolphins’ practice squad, he was promoted to the active roster but played in only one game in each season.
Asiata enters a crowded competition at guard with Spencer Long, Quinton Spain, Wyatt Teller, Jon Feliciano, Vladimir Ducasse, and Jeremiah Sirles all having more starting experience. He’s never played center or tackle, something the Bills like in their offensive lineman.
