Signing contract with the Buffalo Bills.  Good luck Gabe!

To play what position? Maybe offensive line. Guard. Not playing football would be a struggle at center.  Not big enough to play tackle.

I wish him luck. Why not try?

Steveson needs to put on weight to play defensive tackle in the NFL

Probably won't work out too well. I don't see many 5'11" d-lineman. I thought OLB would be a better bet, but maybe that requires too much speed & technique for him. He's an incredible athlete but d-lineman in the NFL tend to be a combination of extreme size and speed. At 5'11", he'd have to bulk up a lot and still have phenomenal speed (after bulking up) to make it.

He is listed as 6'1" 265 lbs at the Buffalo Bills website. 6'1" is short for a Defensive Lineman.

Don't tell that to Mike Daniels who, like Steveson, was a wrestler (not as good as Gabe).  His playing stats were 6'-0" and 291 lbs.  They bumped him over 300# to make him seem legitimate.

I think the Bills listed him at 5'11" actually.

Yah, he's an inch taller and I'm not saying it's impossible. Just saying extremely rare.

Dude needs to get back in the circle. 5'11 265 is no man's land in the NFL.

Ron Dayne?  ;D

Maybe he actually was not that tall. I do not remember.  ::)

Aaron Donald wasn't exactly prototypical DT size...
thats the bottom line
On Wisconsin!

Gabe Stevenson has ZERO chance of making an NFL roster.  Never played a down of football in his life - he's wasting his time.  But then again he wasted alot of his time as supposedly being the next big thing in the WWE and he couldnt cut it there either.

We are both right. An article at the website about his signing says he is 5'11". The roster says he is 6'1".

Maybe the 6'1" measurement is with his cleats and helmet on!  ;D

John Randle was exactly a very big guy either. He was listed at 6 foot 1 and 290 but I believe in college he was 5 foot 11 and 255. So he laid some where in-between I believe. Randal McDaniel was around the same size also. But HOF players fromm the Vikings.

Gable I believe has a very slim chance to make the team but in this day and age could be a special teamer. Gable is a freek athlete for sure. Great fourth times and has incredible functional strength. I wish him well though I do wish he would get back to wrestling!
If life is tough,,,,wear a helmet
