Climbing up the walls in Orchard Park waiting for his contract to be completed was hard enough. Now that Wood is at training camp, he can’t wait for tonight’s practice.
“Oh yeah, I’m ready to go,” he said after the team’s morning walk through. “I’m sweating after a walk thru, so you know I’ll be ready tonight.”
Wood reported to camp at 314 pounds and said he’ll be playing between 310 and 320 pounds this season. So he’s put on some additional lean muscle, which is a bit scary.
“I’ve worked out harder than I have my whole life,” Wood said. “I realize the challenge that’s ahead of me. It’s practically a 21-game minimum for us and we plan on playing 25. It’s one of those deals where you have to get your body ready to go. I worked out a lot with Jason Spitz, he’s a guard for the Packers, and was pretty much my mentor going through the whole process, draft process and what not. He was a senior when I was a freshman at Louisville.”
I’d say if you’re coming to practice tonight keep an eye on number 70. He’s going to be tearing it up.
