Cleveland Browns' rookie Justin Gilbert returned to his team’s offseason workout session with a whole new attitude. After having a rocky season in the NFL as a rookie, Gilbert has been working on being humble as well as gaining some muscles.
“I believe that I was humbled pretty much during last season,” he said while speaking with media late last week.
Not many people saw this coming including his teammates who were, just like everyone else, surprised at how big and humble the rookie is when he reported for the team’s offseason workout sessions.
The main reason as to why Gilbert has opted to go with the new persona is because of the fact that he had a bad season last year something that many people seem to agree with. For instance Donte Whitner, a veteran safety in the NFL, said, just a few weeks ago, that last season was “disastrous” for Gilbert. He didn’t stop there, he added that Gilbert, who was on his rookie season, needed to stop acting as if he is a kid.
If you happen to be a fan of the team then you would have known that last season was not exactly a good one for Gilbert. Throughout the season Gilbert had numerous issues be it on or even off the field but things got even worse for the rookie player as he was deactivated for the game after arriving at a hotel where the team was meeting late.
With the added muscle and humility, Gilbert hopes that he will have a better season than last year. Whether he has change will be known as the season goes on, as for now we can only take him at his word.
