I planned on going back to my high school over the bye, and I sure did go back and worked out. I actually had like a little high school practice — much slower than the NFL. Nah, but I went in and talked to the kids, shared some of my experiences and what I’m going through. I told them that if I can be here, they can be here. Always good to give back.
It also brought back memories. It brings me flashbacks to how hard I worked to get here. I did a lot of thinking over the break. It helped.
After the bye, we’ve basically got a college season coming up. I used the bye to help get ready for this stretch. It’s tough and it’s something I’ve never been a part of. The thing I have to do is just continue to take care of myself and continue to pray and take care of my body. Just keep working. Keep lifting.
