Per the Atlanta Journal-Constitution:


[Stephon] Heyer, a 6-foot-6, 334-pound offensive tackle out of Maryland, signed a free-agent contract with the Washington Redskins on Monday.

Heyer was a three-year starter for the Terrapins. He suffered a knee injury before the 2005 season and was forced to sit out the year. He returned to start every game for Maryland last year, but lingering questions about his injury hurt his draft stock.

A quick review of the Redskins roster reveals that we don't have anyone listed over 330 pounds, making Stephon Heyer the largest player currently on the team.

By the way, he is very large.
