“I’m really happy for him,” Seferian-Jenkins said. “I’m hoping he can turn the page, because life’s too short to dwell on things that you made mistakes on. There’s too many opportunities for a young man — not just as a football player, but as a person — to let that completely affect your life. I’m happy he took the initiative to front it head on. That’s extremely important. Take responsibility. And say, ‘I need to quit this. This is causing a problem not only for myself, but possibly other people.’ That’s a huge sign of his growth and maturity.”
Jamal Adams is a ball of energy. His passion is contagious. He isn’t shy about letting us know that greatness awaits sooner than you think.
“I plan to sit in the very near term with Coach Bowles and our players to discuss today’s decision regarding the National Anthem,” Johnson said in a statement released by the team. “As I have in the past, I will support our players wherever we land as a team. Our focus is not on imposing any club rules, fines or restrictions. Instead we will continue to work closely with our players to constructively advance social justice issues that are important to us. I remain extremely proud of how we demonstrated unity last season as well as our players’ commitment to strengthening our communities.”
“He and I are the same,” wide receiver Quincy Enunwa, who missed all of last season with a neck injury, told The News. “We really want to push ourselves to get out there and do our thing. I don’t think he really cares about what’s in front of him. Obviously, he wants to help in any way that he can, but he’s a football player. He’s a guy that was once a starter.”
“Any time a pick doesn’t work out, I guess you can look at it as a waste,” Todd Bowles said. “When a pick does work out, it’s not a waste. You learn lessons from everything you do in life. It’s not just football and draft picks. If anyone’s got a four-leaf clover up their butt that it’s going to work out every time, please let me know who that person is because, hey, it didn’t work out here.”
