Cornerback Jayron Hosley was drafted by the New York Giants in the third round this past April. Throughout the season, the Virginia Tech product and Florida native provides an inside look into his journey of making it in the NFL. This week’s post begins with the rookie returning home for the bye week before the Giants take on Green Bay this Sunday night.
For the bye, I went back to Florida and I reunited with the family and visited people I haven’t seen in awhile. It really was just a time for relaxing and I was just chilling in my old room. I like to go fishing on the downtime to help me relax. I took my family and we had a couple get-togethers – things like that just to cool out and kind of bring it down to earth a little bit. I got that valuable rest that you need on that bye week.
It’s always good to see your old friends and family. It keeps you grounded. It keeps you grounded for the real family who’s been there and knows how it is and understands just to give you time to relax, cool your head, don’t try to smother you but still be around to give you that love that you need. It’s very relaxing and it’s a great feeling.
When I got back up north, I caught a little bit of the NFL games. I saw a little of the Ravens and the Steelers game yesterday, but to be honest, I was trying to get away from football. That’s the only game I caught – a little bit of the third quarter and some of the fourth.
The time away was much needed, but now it’s Monday and that’s over with. It’s a six-game season now. Everybody, you could tell, is snapping back into business mode and is kind of picking it up and trying to make our improvements. Practice outside today got us going and everybody is focused and ready to get this game plan for Green Bay and go at it.
Everybody knows the Packers have a talented offense. They have a great quarterback out there to get those guys going. He has a lot of options to choose from, and that’s pretty much what I see – a lot of talent on that offense. The defense is good as well. So it’s definitely going to be a tough game.
