Most football players that weigh 320 pounds contribute well on either the offensive or defensive line and are content with just that. Not Jared Lorenzen.

Lorenzen is a quarterback, he has been ever since his high school days when he threw for Northern Kentucky records.

The big signal-caller attended the University of Kentucky and even made it to the NFL where he earned a Super Bowl ring as Eli Manning's backup for the New York Giants.

Lorenzen hasn't played in the NFL since 2008 however and since then he has played for a number of teams in the Continental Indoor Football League.

Video has surfaced online this week of the player impressing with both his arm and his mobility as he dodges a number of would-be tacklers and throws the ball downfield. See the amazing video here.

Sports analyst Jim Rome was suitably in awe of the plays as he tweeted: "Can't stop watching these Jared Lorenzen clips. The XFL had He Hate Me. The CIFL has He Ate Me."

Rome's comments are perhaps not the most complimentary toward the player, but Lorenzen didn't seem to mind as he replied to the broadcaster: "Thanks for all the love. @jimrome and everyone else."

Lorenzen is now 32 years old and is clearly still going strong.
