Remember when I talked about feeling like a rookie? Well it’s true. Although training camp doesn’t officially start until Friday, the rookies on our team reported today—and I joined them too.

Each season represents a new start, but this time around it’s an even bigger deal for me. Having spent time on the injured reserve last year, I have to fight for my position. In football, nothing is given to you because of what you may have accomplished in the past. It’s all about “what have you done for me lately.”

But I have the opportunity to win my spot back. It’ll take faith, hard work, and perseverance, but it’s a fight I’m ready for.

Training camp is underway. Let’s Freakin’ Go!
