Baylor put no-contact restriction on 400-pound TE to protect teammates

McGowan, a converted 6-foot-7 guard who weighs in at 400-plus pounds, caught an 18-yard touchdown pass against Michigan State in the Cotton Bowl. Since then, McGowan, who told Fox Sports that he was “425 (pounds) butt naked” and “probably about 440” in pads for the Cotton Bowl, has practiced exclusively at tight end for the Bears and is listed as a co-starter coming out of spring practice.
Baylor head coach Art Briles says the team is ready to unleash McGowan, a fifth-year senior who he has nicknamed “The Annihilator.”
