Baalke noted he’s big (yep – 6-foot-2, 226 pounds), physical (yawn), can block (neat), can run after the catch (I would hope so) and then … “He’s got huge hands,” Baalke said. “Size-11 hands.” Whoa. Eleven-inch hands? Are you, um, grasping that? Consider this: The average length of a male hand (measured from pinkie to thumb) is just a tick under 7 ½ inches, the New York Times noted last year.
