A Philadelphia Eagles Defensive End Gained 20 Pounds in Eight Weeks Eating Philly Cheesesteaks

Our only thought after hearing about the story of Eagles defensive end Brandon Graham's incredible weight gain last winter: Now this is a guy qualified to answer that age-old Philly cheesesteak question, "Pat's or Geno's?" But, as it turns out, Graham—who recently came out and claimed that he gained 20 pounds in just eight weeks last winter after tearing his ACL—actually prefers Philly sandwich spot Jim's for his cheesesteaks. And he ate there plenty last January when he'd eat an entire cheesesteak every time he walked by the place, which is just blocks from his home in Philly.

He's since lost all that weight and he's getting closer to returning from his ACL injury. But the greatest pain in his life right now is that he can no longer enjoy some of the best cheesesteaks in the world as his leisure. Sorry, big boy. But salads and grilled chicken will have to do for you. [via ThePostGame]
