Damien Woody before Biggest Loser 2014 Season 16
Damien Woody from "Biggest Loser 2014" is one of the contestants featured in Season 16 of the NBC reality weight-loss competition series. He is an ESPN analyst and lives in Mendham, New Jersey.

Damien Woody was an NFL football player for 12 years and a two-time Super Bowl champion with the New England Patriots. He played for the Patriots from 1999-2003, the Detroit Lions from 2004-07 and New York Jets from 2007-10. Woody was born and raised in Richmond, Virginia, the middle child of three, and attended Boston College after high school. He says he's been overweight for as long as he can remember, and though he weighed more than 300 pounds when he graduated from high school, his size was always an asset as a football player. Since retiring from football in 2010, less activity and the passing of his mother and grandfather in the past three years all contributed to additional weight gain.

Now 36 years old, 388 pounds and married to his high school sweetheart, Woody struggles to keep up with his four daughters and three sons, ranging in age from 2-15. He came on the show to regain his health and sees it as an opportunity to compete not only against others, but also himself. He has lost friends he played with in the NFL far too young, and doesn't want to be another statistic and former NFL player gone too soon due to weight-related issues. Once he loses the weight, Woody looks forward to living a long healthy life with his wife and kids, and also looks forward to clothes shopping at other places besides Big & Tall stores.
