Winning the Super Bowl last year with my team was such a surreal experience. The celebration with my teammates, confetti and all, was incredible but what was the most exciting part after the game for me was the experiencing the anticipation of seeing my wife, my daughter, my parents, and my siblings. Sharing that moment with all the people that have supported me and who love me the most was really special.
Leading into this season, we are going through a lot of transition as a team. But these are transitions that I’m very used to in this league. Since entering the NFL, I’ve played for six different head coaches and experienced many changes with players and team coaches coming and going. I’m excited for what this year is going to bring and I’m looking forward to improving on offense—I know we can get better this year.
Football is not a one-man show. It’s the job of every guy on the team to help each other become the best player they can be. The guys from the team last year are there to help the new recruits implement strategies and plays into their routines and the new players can help us learn new things and grow in our skills as well. We all want to win games so in whatever way that we can work as a team, being open to learning new strategies, that’s what we’re going to do.
I love competing in Denver. We have some of the best fans in this city and it’s such a blessing to be a part of this community. My family and I have grown to love it here as we’ve settled down and found a great community in our church and on our team. The fellowship that I’ve experienced with my teammates has been amazing and we’ve had great Bible studies in the off-season. All these things make me more and more excited for what God is going to do this year in Denver and I’m so thankful to be a part of it.
“Now to Him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to His power that is at work within us, to Him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, forever and ever! Amen.” —Ephesians 3:20-21.
