Jets offensive tackle Kelvin Beachum had a wise attitude toward being a college football player: You’re getting your education paid for [url=http://www.authenticsseattleseahawks.com/cheap-michael-d***son-jersey]Michael d***son Color Rush Jersey[/url] , so you might as well make the most of it.

Beachum said on NFL Network that he redshirted as a freshman at SMU and got his bachelor’s degree having just finished his junior football season, meaning he still had three semesters on campus before he would begin his NFL career. And he decided to make the most of those last three semesters by taking classes so hard that the dean initially felt it wouldn’t be possible to do the coursework with a football player’s schedule.

“I graduated in three and a half years. I got my undergrad in economics and sports management,” Beachum said. “Most guys when they go back to school take bowling, volleyball, just do something to have fun and blow off time, but I figured I could get some extra education, so I thought about getting a master’s. The dean at the time . . . didn’t really feel it was something an athlete could do at the time [url=http://www.officialhurricanes.com/authentic-adidas-victor-rask-jersey]Womens Victor Rask Jersey[/url] , so I got rejected at first. But I kept trying, found a way to get in to the master’s program and got it done in 16 months and got it done with a pretty high GPA. And he was the guy who introduced me at the commencement, so it was a great to see a guy who rejected me let me do the commencement speech.”

That story is a good one for young people, football players or not, to hear.

The Dolphins didn’t get much of a look at linebacker Raekwon McMillan during his rookie season as the second-round pick tore his ACL while covering a punt early in the team’s first preseason game.

McMillan’s injury came at a time when he was “about to make that move” into the starting lineup, according to defensive coordinator Matt Burke. That made the injury bad news for McMillan and the Dolphins, but Burke said the good news is that McMillan’s back on track after rehabbing the injury.

“We had high hopes for him last year [url=http://www.kansascitychiefsteamonline.com]Chiefs Authentic Jerseys[/url] ,” Burke said, via the Palm Beach Post. “Nothing he’s done since then has discouraged that. … He’s been really in-tune, been really sharp. He’s got all the leadership skills and things that we look for, especially at that position. He’s worked his ass off to get better. He’s rehabbed. He’s in here every day. He hasn’t shown any limitations so far, which has been encouraging. Hopefully he’s a big piece for us.”

If all continues to go well, McMillan should be at middle linebacker and making up for lost time when the Dolphins season starts in September.
