Terrence Cody promises he’ll report in shape

If you were making a list of players likely to gain weight and get out of shape during the lockout, Ravens defensive tackle Terrence Cody would have to be near the top of it. At last year’s Senior Bowl, Cody tipped the scales at 370 pounds, and after Baltimore drafted him, he failed his first conditioning test at training camp.

But there’s good news for Ravens fans: Cody recently attended a charity softball game in the Baltimore area, and he showed up looking slim and saying he’ll be in good shape whenever the lockout ends.

“I feel like I’m in pretty good shape. I’ve been training twice a day, and the workouts get harder each week,” Cody said, per John Eisenberg of “That’s the biggest thing I’m working on, weight and conditioning.”

Cody wouldn’t say exactly how much he weighs, just that he’s in good shape.

“I haven’t checked myself,” Cody said. I’m waiting for the season to start so everyone can find out.”

Ravens General Manager Ozzie Newsome recently said Cody would have a breakout season in 2011. Cody said that knowing the team is counting on him is part of what makes him so committed to his conditioning.

“I heard about that,” Cody said. “A couple of people told me about that. I use it as motivation to keep working hard.”

    I hope Cody can stick to his promises better than when my wife promises she’ll not spend too much money at the mall.

    Mount Cody!!! The belly flop on J. Charles in the playoffs was awesome.

    Really liked the pick at the time. Ngata and Cody could be unstoppable.

    Outstanding. Now if we could just get the rest of America to follow suit.

    When Newsome first made those comments, I believe I said something like “yeah, if his fat ass is in shape after being off all offseason with no guidence”. If he actually makes it to training camp in shape I will gladly eat those words.

    The fact that he showed up to an event, where people could see him and he looks to be in shape (for a man his size) gives me hope.

    Oval is considered a shape, right?

    With Cody, Ngata, and another D-lineman they have enough beef to essentially running a 4 man front instead of 3.
