Danny Watkins was signed by the Miami Dolphins, presumably as insurance in case of a flare-up in the players lounge. Speaking the Miami Herald, Watkins talked about the fact that, yeah, it’s kind of messed up that they pay me to do this:
“I got to Philadelphia and it was just a rough go from the get-go,” Watkins said. “I felt like it just got broken down to bones and never got built back. It was more a mental thing. I was very disappointing to myself that it never panned out the way it could. Because I know I can play physical and tough football but it just never … I think it was more a mental aspect than anything.
“These last three years have been such a whirlwind. it was great opportunity to play in the NFL. My college career was great, I love Baylor and what they did for me there. Looking back, six years ago if you had told me I’d be in the position I am today, I would have laughed at you. I’m very fortunate and very blessed to be where I am today.”
While Watkins was laughing at you, we were laughing at Andy Reid. Good times, those days.
