Will Montgomery has dropped more than 80 pounds since retiring from the NFL in 2015.
But roughly two years after retiring, Montgomery had reportedly lost 80 pounds and had downsized to a 34-inch waist. Montgomery says the key to his weight loss was cutting out pasta, bread, and sugar. Also, he says that he started drinking red wine instead of beer, which was a small sacrifice he made to lose weight when he was done playing.
In a 2017 interview with The Washington Post, Montgomery talked about purging his closet of his size 42 jeans and XXXL sweatpants, “Bags upon bags upon bags,” Montgomery said. “At least five humongous, oversized jumbo trash bags — like the big contractor bags — just filled to the brim.”
