Video: Derrick Brown talks about dropping weight, gaining confidence

Washington tight end Derrick Brown had one of the funniest lines after Thursday’s football practice when he said ‘No more McDonald’s for me.’

The 6 foot 3, 250-pound junior focused on changing his body during the offseason. He admitted he was a little flabby during the past two seasons and the extra weight had been one of his biggest reasons why he struggled to make the transition from quarterback to tight end.

Brown also talked about what he learned last season while backing up UW’s former record-setting tight end Austin Seferian-Jenkins, who was taken in the second round in the 2014 NFL draft by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
