Colin McCarthy: Added weight is good weight

LB Colin McCarthy has added six pounds and now weighs 243. McCarthy also weighed 243 in 2009 at Miami, but feels healthier now due to the Titans' strength and conditioning program. “I was too big (in '09), it wasn't a good weight (due to lesser conditioning),” McCarthy said. “The first thing you notice is your hamstring will go when you're overweight. My hamstring feels good.”

McCarthy's top priority in the offseason is building strength so he won't get injured. McCarthy missed three games in 2011 with a sore hamstring and played through a minor knee ailment. In 2008 at Miami, McCarthy redshirted after suffering a season-ending shoulder injury. “My strength numbers have gone up,” McCarthy said. “I'm just trying to take care of my body.”
