David Backes cut 10 pounds this summer in an effort to be quicker and healthier this season.
"It was a concerted effort over the summer to continue to clean up my diet after my colon issues last year, and training in a little more of a functional way rather than a bulky football sort of brawn-type of way," Backes explained. "Let's still win the battles, but let's also make sure that I can get to a few more [battles]. That was the emphasis. Whether it comes to fruition or not we're about to find out with training camp just getting started." Backes was limited to 57 games last season, but he is confident he can remain in the lineup more.
