Offensive lineman David Carter weighed in at 300 pounds during his brief time with the Arizona Cardinals.

The unknown offensive lineman turned himself into a vegan fitness model.
Toward the end of his career, Carter made the radical change to become a vegan. In his post-laying days, he’s also become a vegan advocate and helped lead a mini-crazy of current NFL players who have gone vegan. Oh, and after he retired, Carter dropped 40 pounds in just six short weeks. He’s slimmed down enough to do even some modeling work.
