Patriots fans may remember Jared Lorenzen as a backup quarterback to Eli Manning when the Giants defeated the 18-0 Patriots in Super Bowl XLII.
The former University of Kentucky and NFL quarterback is still playing pro football, with the Northern Kentucky River Monsters of the Continental Indoor Football League, though not exactly at the same size he was during his days with the G-men.
He is listed at 320 pounds on the River Monsters roster, and as this tweet from LEX10 Weekend Sports Anchor Kyle Scott shows he is still out there on the gridiron (heís No. 22).

Several Vines of Lorenzenís play have also been making their way around the internet, including these from Barstool Sports of the River Monsters' Feb. 3 game against the Bluegrass Warhorses:
Lorenzen appeared in four games over two seasons with the Giants from 2006-2007. He completed four passes on eight attempts for 28 yards in 2007, earning a Super Bowl ring that season.
