I was happy to see the start of training vamp finally here for the upcoming 2012 season.
Seeing my old and new teammates gearing up for the battle in the trenches is what it’s all about. Solidifying a starting spot on the defensive line is my goal going into this Training Camp, a little different from my first two seasons in the league.
My rookie year I was just trying to prove that I belonged and could play at the next level. I see the same nervous look on some of the rookies’ faces this year, and I know exactly what they are going through. My second year I knew I could play in this league and was trying to prove I could run with the BIG DOGS on the D-line.
