About 30 rookies will hit the field Monday for offseason workouts, their first opportunity to work alongside the team’s veterans. It’s a second chance at a first impression after they spent the prior three days with coaches during rookie minicamp.
When I heard about this, I thought it was pretty cool (and, disclaimer, I’m an alum of NCSU, if you didn’t already know). But I thought it would be interesting to see what an NFL player might offer in a speech. Rivers said one thing that really stood out to me, however, and it’s advice I’d pass along to just about anyone.
