With OTA’s recently finishing up, Troy told Joe why he chose not to forgo the optional practices like he usually does saying that the franchise saw more change this off-season than it has during his time here, and he felt it was important to be around the team and provide some consistency.

Troy talked about the importance of his family to him and how he balances his spiritual life and football career, and said if his son ever wanted to play football even with all the concussion issues, he’d be more than happy to let him play because of the life lessons it teaches you.
