Texas tight end Pharaoh Brown had some financial motives for shedding weight this offseason.

Brown, who signed a one-year, $3.5million deal this year, says he’s lost 18 pounds on the assumption he can get a better deal in 2023 if he’s a receiving tighter rather than a blocking one end is.

“I was a fat guy last year,” Brown said of the Houston Chronicle. “One of the linemen just said to me, ‘I’m proud of you man. Last year you were an O-Line tight end, and now you’re out there catching balls. I told him I got a new financial advisor and they told me tight end blocking is the minimum.

Texans head coach Lovie Smith says Brown has the potential to be both a blocking and receiving tight end.

“He’s listed as a tight end, but he can play in line, he can move out,” Smith said. “It’s a tough duel because he has great wide receiver ability. Just another weapon we need to be able to use. We can put him in many different positions, which only adds flexibility to our offense.”

Brown’s Weight Loss Secret? He says he stopped drowning all his meals in barbecue sauce, which eliminated “all the sugar and high fructose corn syrup that you don’t really notice.”
