Mark Schlereth was a member of the Super Bowl-winning Washington Redskins and Denver Broncos.
After 12 seasons in the NFL spent hovering around the 300-pound mark (not to mention the countless surgeries he would endure in that time), Mark Schlereth says he was excited not to have to eat so much after he retired.

The man known as “Stink” now looks good enough to be a soap opera star.
The work has paid off, as Schlereth looks far slimmer than he did during his days as a lineman. Perhaps more importantly, he altered his workout routine in a way that was designed to make him fit rather than strong. He looks good enough to get work as an analyst on TV. Schlereth has even had a recurring role on the soap opera Guiding Light.
