Bryant McKinnie is no longer the giant man on the end of the Vikings offensive line, thanks to his reported losing battle against weight gain.

McKinnie was placed on the "non-football injury" list on Monday, which was taken to mean he was simply too out of shape for training camp.

If the Vikings were curious how McKinnie got himself out of shape, there's no need to ask Big Mac. The evidence is all there in a series of joyful but perhaps ill-advised tweets that McKinnie has been sending out for months.

City Pages kept an eye on McKinnie, and what follows is the true, tweeted story of how Bryant McKinnie spent his summer vacation.

The offseason gave Bryant a chance to reconnect with friends.

For example, his production company, B Major, threw a birthday party for Lil Kim at a club called Santos in Miami.

That party, as recorded by a slickly produced video, featured not only Lil Kim but famous athlete/partymen, Dennis Rodman and Floyd Mayweather, Jr. From the looks of it, Bryant had a really good time.

Some times McKinnie asked for a helping hand, as in this case when he challenged his Twitter followers with a specific, time-sensitive question.

Other times, he used Twitter to send messages to individual friends, like this well-named woman who wanted McKinnie's whereabouts.

McKinnie is a social animal, and can be disappointed when others fail to reach out to him. In this case, he's saddened to learn that Sheneka Adams -- a hip-hop video vixen who got semi-famous after a solo sex tape -- did not call him when she was in town.

In another instance, Bryant tweeted at Luther "Luke" Campbell, the former front man for the stripper-loving rap group 2 Live Crew and a fourth-place finisher for mayor of Miami.

Presumably, McKinnie wanted to discuss a fair tax plan for the city, and not their shared love of exotic dancers.

McKinnie keeps in touch not only with big-time celebrities, but also those on the smaller end, as in this case when he tweeted with Shay "Buckeey" Johnson, a contestant on VH1's "Flavor of Love" who has since gone into pantsless modeling.
