Earlier this week, former Miami Dolphins tight end Jordan Cameron said he doesn’t think many players in the NFL enjoy playing football, going so far as to insinuate that players within his own locker room could be included in that claim.
Well, there’s at least one guy in the Dolphins locker room who refutes that allegation.
Center Mike Pouncey had something to say about that.
“He couldn’t be talking about me,” said Pouncey, who along with his twin brother Maurkice from the Pittsburgh Steelers, was playing in a charity golf tournament at the Weston Hills Country Club in support of the Jason Taylor Foundation’s annual golf benefit. “I wouldn’t be able to speak for him but personally, myself, I love football.”
Cameron had also said that his past injuries contributed to him playing timidly in fear of re-injuring himself. And since Pouncey has suffered his own share of injuries in his career, it’s refreshing to know that he doesn’t feel that way at all.
Pouncey went on to say that he’d like to think most of his current teammates love the game, too.
“I would hope so.”
