It's been almost six years since Jared Lorenzen donned the colors of the New York Giants and five years since he was in the NFL altogether. Most people remember him for the funny nicknames when he was in the league. "The Hefty Lefty," "The Pillsbury Throw Boy" and "The Big Mound of Touchdown."
Even though he hasn't played professionally in a long time, Lorenzen is still taking snaps at quarterback for the North Kentucky River Monsters of the Continental Indoor League and in the video posted, the former Giant left-handed backup quarterback still possesses some scrambling ability.
The 32-year-old was once listed at 285 pounds when he was in the NFL, but apparently with the River Monsters, Lorenzen weighs in at 320 pounds — something unheard of for a quarterback considering anyone over 300 pounds in the NFL would play either on the offensive line or defensive line, yet Lorenzen still has his abilities to play the position.
Lorenzen was the backup quarterback to Eli Manning when the Giants won the Super Bowl back in the 2007 season over the New England Patriots.
