Jets defensive tackle Kris Jenkins has lost 33.6 pounds in the last three months, earning him a victory in his weight-loss competition with coach Rex Ryan and offensive tackle Damien Woody.
“I won! I won!” Jenkins said after weighing in at 359 pounds. “I feel like I’m in the best shape I’ve been in in a while.”
Woody came in second, dropping from 366 to 340, while Ryan came in last by losing only 20 pounds since he challenged Jenkins and Woody to the contest. Ryan, who had lap-band surgery this offseason, had already lost 37 pounds when the contest began, so he’s lost a total of 57 this offseason. Ryan now weighs 291.
For winning the contest, Jenkins gets a donation made to his favorite charity, Life Pieces to Masterpieces, which help children use art to avoid trouble on the streets.
