week one of spring training is over. still in denial that I am going into my third year in the NFL. how fast its gone by is unreal, and its been a hell of a ride. nonetheless, there is nothing else I’d rather be doing. the first week had its typical tribulations, body being sore, hand eye coordination being a little off, but I got it right back within that first week. I’m stronger than ever and the people around me notice it. I don’t believe in searching for affirmation but hell when its mentioned a few times I won’t say it doesn’t put a pep in my step.
this time of year is my favorite time of year, other than opening day of the season. a lot of new faces surround me, and more will come with the draft coming up soon, and I embrace the new blood and can’t wait to compete. every day I get an opportunity to show my worth is day I won’t let pass me by. during this time I’m focusing on short term goals, such as weight and speed. come june 16th I will be bigger, faster, and stronger than i’ve ever been, leaving a nice foundation to start year three.
