It's funny, when I saw clips of him standing on the sideline as Bengals coach, he just never looked that big to me. Not big enough to play OT. Obviously it was years later, and he had probably slimmed down by that point. His playing weight was listed as 250 pounds, for his 6'4" height. Very small compared to the men of today. Still, it was odd when I found out he was an OT. Probably because my first images of him were as coach of Cincinnati. 

There wasn't the huge disparity in weight between linemen and backs that we have today...6'4" 250 lbs isn't significantly bigger than Calvin Johnson!

Yeah it's pretty crazy. As good as he was, Gregg would get manhandled today.
