Seahawks coach Pete Carroll was joking, when he said the team's new guard Deuce Lutui had checked in at 208 pounds for the offseason conditioning program. Turns out though that Lutui, who teams have viewed skeptically for his fitness(having checked in at 396 pounds in 2010) has indeed lost a lot of weight--the Seahawks have him listed at 338 pounds this season. And, he did it by going vegan. Lutui's agent Ken Harris said Monday about the 28-year-old Tongan's vegan diet, "Before he knew it, he was slim and trim like a ballerina."
