Minnesota Vikings tight end Kyle Rudolph was one of many NFC North rookies sitting in Wednesday's session of the NFL Players Association-sponsored rookie symposium. He heard a now-viral talk given by former NFL coach, and current ESPN analyst, Herm Edwards. Rudolph tweeted his favorite line from Edwards: "Everyone wants to get to Heaven, But no one is willing to die."
That's a dramatic way of saying there is a price to be paid to reach your goals. I like it, mostly because it's true.
