The “jump pass” is back! Dontari Poe, a 346-pound defensive tackle, threw one for a touchdown Sunday night.
With the game in hand — leading 27-17 with 1:55 left in the fourth quarter — the Kansas City Chiefs heavyweight lined up in a shotgun formation at Denver’s 2-yard line. Poe then took the direct snap, ran toward the line of scrimmage and tossed the ball over the line, finding tight end Demetrius Harris in the end zone for a touchdown.
6-3. 346lbs. @PoeMans_dream is a defensive tackle…

The scoring play set an NFL record, as Poe is now the heaviest player to throw a touchdown pass.
Last season, he set another record — becoming the heaviest player to score a rushing touchdown.
Here he is doing it in 2016 as well.

The big man can do it all! Who says heavy guys can’t be great athletes?
