Levine Toilolo bulks up
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Falcons tight end Levine Toilolo "added a lot of muscle in the offseason, especially to his upper body," reports the team's website. The 6-8 Toilolo played at 265 pounds last year. The website did not say how much Toilolo weighs now.

Toilolo figures to start now that Tony Gonzalez has retired. He won't get nearly as many passes thrown his way, but could become a red-zone factor. Toilolo caught 11 balls for 55 yards and two touchdowns last season while appearing in every game.

Falcons linebacker Paul Worrilow, who played at 232 pounds last season, has added about 10 pounds of muscle and should play at around 245 this year, reports the team's website. Worrilow had 127 tackles and two sacks as a rookie and will be critical to overcoming the loss of linebacker Sean Weatherspoon (Achilles).
