Nate Ebner, yo

Nate Ebner was last seen securing Wes Welker's muffed punt to secure a crucial AFC victory for his Patriots over Peyton Manning's Broncos:

New England Patriots safety and special teams player Nate Ebner joined Bull & Fox to talk about his journey to the NFL after playing special teams at Ohio State, the transition to making an impact on a NFL roster, the leadership behind Bill Belichick and Tom Brady, following Ohio State’s season and rooting for the chance at a national championship.

You'll have to click through to catch the podcast, but if you're interested in a tale from an amazingly humble guy about a completely unorthodox path to the NFL, it's definitely worth the llisten.

a completely unorthodox path to the NFL

There's an understatement!!  Dude never played HS football, just a freak athlete and world class rugby player - walks on, has 30 career tackles at tOSU, and now he's playing on Sunday!!

ONE Not Done!
