One Response to Native Spotlight: Who is T.J. Barnes?

  1. Ben Anderson says:

    He was measured on his Pro Day at Georgia Tech at 6’6″, 369 lbs. Not sure where the myth that he’s 6’9″ started. There are guys in the league who are taller and who have bigger frames, but none that outweigh him. That may be why he doesn’t seem to embrace the title “NFL’s Biggest Player”
