Rookies don't have much in the way of juice in their first spring and summer as NFL players.
These kids spend the calendar's warmest months with a huge target on their backs; forced to get bad haircuts, pick up dinner tabs, carry stinky equipment and perform embarrassing song and dance routines. Even in a post-Incognito world, first-year players have no choice but to adjust to life at the bottom of the food chain.
If you're a thirty-something parent like me, you'll know these are the information boards other parents post on Facebook during late August and early September each year. Typically, it is a very young child holding the board with the details of a milestone in their journey through their pre-school or elementary education.
