↵↵Giants tight ends coach Mike Pope caused a stir last week when he suggested that Bennett, signed as a free agent during the offseason, had injured a hamstring partially because he weight 291, up from the approximate 270 he played at last season for the Dallas Cowboys. The obvious thought -- Bennett was out of shape.

↵

He begs to differ -- shorts and all.

↵

"I'm looking like Atlas, not Professor Klump," he told reporters.

↵

If you still think he's fat? Well, all 291 pounds of Bennett reminded reporters that "I'm one of the top 5 strongest guys on this team right now."

↵

So, go ahead. Call him fat. At your own risk.
