LeSean McCoy, Macho Harris Bulk Up for 2010

Written By Bob Cunningham On Thursday, February 04, 2010

Hopefully Harris will use his newly-acquired bulk.

At the most recent weigh-ins, running back LeSean McCoy and free safety Macho Harris both bulked up from their 2009 weights, something that will help out both guys next season as they are expected to step up and earn more playing time.

McCoy bulked up from 198 to 210 pounds, while Harris went from 187 to 195 pounds.

While the extra 12 pounds will help McCoy withstand the beating he's going to take as the main ball-carrier next season, it's Harris' weight-gain that could have the biggest impact.

Perhaps the extra eight pounds will make him more willing to attack the man he's tackling, rather than attempting to simply arm-tackle everyone. The way he seemed to play afraid of getting hurt was enough to drive me insane and call for his job on more than one occasion.

Hopefully McCoy becomes more willing to block and take on tacklers, as well.

Two brand new Eagles were also weighed in. Former "Most Outstanding Rookie" of the CFL, running back Martell Mallett weighed in at 200 pounds and 5 feet 11 inches tall, while fullback Dwayne Wright weight in at 234 pounds and also 5 feet 11 inches tall.

It's a slow day in Eagle-land, folks. I bring the news as it comes.
