On his offseason weight gain:

“I focused on a lot of things, I really did. Every year has its different challenges. I wanted to get a little bigger this year and put on a few more pounds and try to absorb the hits a little more. I worked pretty hard at that. It was good. I still realized when I got here I wanted to be a little more fluid. There’s a difference between getting really dense and obviously getting more pliable.”

Whatever Tom does works, so if he says the weight gain thing was necessary, I believe him.
