ESPN’s Mike Wilbon is an outlier among NFL executives when it comes to his weight.
In 2015, Wilbon, who was the defensive coordinator for the Philadelphia Eagles for two seasons, lost an estimated 3.3 pounds.
He is the highest-paid defensive player in the NFL, and is considered one of the game’s most important figures in NFL history.
His weight has been a topic of conversation on ESPN’s The Jump since 2013, when the NFL Players Association called for an overhaul of the league’s weight guidelines to reduce the risk of injury.
Wilbon was asked by ESPN’s Outside the Lines last year about the conversation and told ESPN’s Dan Graziano that he had lost an additional 5.6 pounds during the 2015 season.
He said he was overweight during the 2014 season, but has since lost the weight and is back in the “normal range.”
He also said that he doesn’t feel “too bad” about the weight loss and that it’s not about being a bad person.
Wilbens weight has not been an issue during his tenure with the Eagles, which was part of a five-year contract that included a $5 million signing bonus and $3 million in base salary.
Wilbourne was hired by the Eagles in 2014 after working with defensive coordinator Sean McDermott for three seasons with the New Orleans Saints.
Wilbur’s biggest accomplishment during his time with the team was leading the defense in sacks with 11 in 2015, but the Eagles struggled during the 2016 season due to injuries.
The Eagles have a tough schedule coming up this season, with games against the Indianapolis Colts, Tampa Bay Buccaneers, New England Patriots and New York Jets.
The team also has a home game against the Denver Broncos on Sept. 17.ESPN’s Ian Rapoport contributed to this report.
