Manage episode 358737048 series 2772514
Just days after being traded from the Las Vegas Raiders to the New York Giants, CC and Ryan are joined by NFL Tight End Darren Waller. In a span of one week, Darren married WNBA star Kelsey Plum and found out that he'll be moving across the country to start a new football chapter with a team on the rise. The episode details his early impressions of Big Blue, expectations for the upcoming season, behind-the-scenes of the trade, navigating trade rumors and adversity in his career, and how all his personal & professional experiences have shaped who he is today. From his Darren Waller Foundation, Comeback Stories Podcast, youth scholarships, to numerous acts of service - Darren is devoted to using his own early struggles to help others overcome their issues with addiction. The episode closes out with a very poignant reflection of how Darren and Kelsey support each other as married professional athletes and how a practice squad warm up changed the trajectory of his career.
