Derwin James on rehab process, Sean Taylor comparisons, Justin Herbert and Chargers' future
We needed a little more Florida State representation on the podcast, so we brought on a guest that literally has a Seminole tatted on him. Derwin James joins All Things Covered to discuss his health, his versatility on the field and 2021 expectations for the Chargers (33:00) But first, our hosts chop it up on that viral video featuring Cam Newton and a young camper (1:45). What are the dangers of seeking social media fame? Patrick and Bryant also share their thoughts and emotions on the untimely passing of Vincent Jackson (8:00). Jackson was selected one spot ahead of BMac in the 2005 NFL Draft and played alongside Pat in two Pro Bowls. The guys were shocked and saddened to hear the news and hope the NFL continues to implement more programs to help retired players. We transition to 'Has Pat Heard!?' testing his knowledge of recent news events (18:30). Carson Wentz was traded, Tim Tebow retired from baseball and Deion Sanders made his head coaching debut. But how much did P2 know before we asked/told him? Next up is '21 Question' where you get to find out the most underrated players our duo have gone up against (26:15). Then, we welcome former first-round pick and former All-Pro, Derwin James (33:00). Derwin shares how his rehab process is going and informs us of a trip to the Bahamas he took alongside Pat and Jalen Ramsey to work on their craft. We learn how Polk County helped shape his football path, as did having several family members that would make it to the NFL. Derwin addresses the folklore that he lined up at nose guard in high school and speaks about his versatility on the field, which has garnered Sean Taylor comparisons. Derwin recollects his commitment to Florida State which was stamped with a tattoo during. Listen to hear 2018 Draft memories, thoughts on Justin Herbert and new Chargers coach Brandon Staley. Superlatives close us out as Derwin tells us who he hates more: Florida or Miami...
