Here’s How these Top NFL Players Can Inspire You to Pursue Your Goals and Reach Them!

We often consider professional athletes lucky because they make a lot of money doing something they love and get paid for it. However, we fail to realize that there are many sleepless nights behind their multimillion-dollar contracts, fancy cars, and big houses. It also has trepidation, injuries, the cons of fame, and so much more in the pursuit of their dreams.

Some young athletes have pushed beyond the limitations of their surroundings social establishment and made their dreams come true. They probably began their journey with college football before achieving their lifelong dreams and expectations of the talented individuals who went the extra mile to realize their dreams. Check out these players, who may inspire you to find your calling.

London Fletcher

London Fletcher

London Fletcher is a player that has gone under the radar during his entire career. But he has been as productive as ever since he began playing for St. Louis in the 2001 season. He is now in his 13th season. And has an impressive frame of 5’10” frame.

Fletcher is in his thirties now. He is just the first trio of linebackers who knows how to hit it out of the park exactly. And he has been a lightning bolt of energy for the Bills and now slaying it for his current team Washington Redskins.

Justin Jefferson

Justin Joshua Jefferson is an American football wide receiver who plays for the Minnesota Vikings of the National Football League. He played college football at LSU until the Vikings drafted the team in the first round of the 2020 NFL Draft. Jefferson can truly inspire everyone with his sheer dedication to his game.

It is no wonder he is the 2022 Pro Bowl. Soon he joined Randy Moss and Sammy White as the only three Vikings wide receivers to make it to the Pro Bowls in each of their first two professional seasons. For the second consecutive year, Jefferson was named the second-team member of the AP All-Pro team, missing a spot on the first-team by a whisker.

Brian Dawkins

Brian Dawkins is a former American football safety who played for 16 seasons in the National Football League (NFL), primarily with the Philadelphia Eagles. The Philadelphia Eagles were drafted in the second round of the 1996 NFL Draft. He played college football at Clemson.

In his last three seasons, he has played for Denver Broncos. There are very few players who are as inspirational as Dawkins. He was also called the Weapon X after the codename of the Marvel Comics character Wolverine mostly famous for showing aggression on the field, which invigorates other players in the field like no one else.

Drew Brees

Brees is now truly a world champion after taking on the Super Bowl XLIV trophy. Part of the success is because he has been part of the well-known pregame pump-up. His chant may be one of the most infamous pregame chants of All-Time rivaling the Atlanta Falcons. Brees not only lets his play do all the talking but also energizes his teammates to play to the best of their ability.

Not only is Drew Brees arguably one of the best quarterbacks in the NFL. His philanthropic activities are truly inspiring as well. After the horrific damage caused by Hurricane Katrina, Brees and the other New Orleans Saints players helped out the local residents and helped them rebuild their homes and resurrect their lives.

He also began the Brees Dream Foundation in 2003, which has been instrumental in aiding in cancer research to education to helping underprivileged youth.

Chad Pennington

Chad PenningtonChad Pennington had a great start to his career, but a shoulder surgery threatened to stop his career, but not one to give up that easily. In 2007, Pennington suffered from many injury issues and could only go through half of the regular season. A year later, Pennington led the Jets to the playoffs. This was behind 3,652 yards passing and earned the title of the Comeback Player of the Year Award.

Once again, the quarterback proved the naysayers wrong and led the Miami Dolphins to the playoffs. He also won the second Comeback Player of the Year Award. And this was because he had to finish second to Peyton Manning for the NFL MVP. He showed that injuries could never stop him from achieving his goals.

These NFL players can inspire you to trudge on, no matter what, and reach your goals showing resilience and character.
