From signing with New Orleans to coming back to Atlanta, Sharrod Neasman opens up about his 2018 season

Every undrafted free agent who signs with a team knows they have to defy the odds. They don’t receive the same amount of opportunities as other players, and the margin for error is limited compared to other players. It’s all about capitalizing on every opportunity and making your presence felt. That’s what Sharrod Neasman has been doing since he was a college walk-on at Florida Atlantic.

In June 2017, I spoke to Neasman about his rise from being a college walk-on to playing in the Super Bowl. It’s been a remarkable journey for a player who wasn’t sure if he’d ever get an opportunity to play in college.
