Titans White's weight loss plan? Stop swilling tequila

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Tennessee Titans running back LenDale White lost more than 30 pounds this offseason and is in his fourth training camp with the Tennessee Titans at his slimmest weight since high school.

The running back admits he wishes he understood earlier in his career the importance of being in shape.

Just how did he lose the weight? White gave up tequila.

White committed to losing weight after the Titans' playoff loss to Baltimore in January, and he was as low as 229 pounds during the offseason program. The running back whose draft stock dropped him from a potential top-15 pick coming out of Southern California in 2006 to the second round had plenty of doubters about whether he could show up at camp still lean.
