Pete Carroll on Jaxon Smith-Njigba: ‘He’s not going to be denied’

They often say NFL players are “built different” and this could not be a more accurate statement – especially when it comes to Seattle Seahawks rookie wide receiver Jaxon Smith-Njigba. The Ohio State standout recently underwent wrist surgery, but that is not stopping the grind.

JSN already has two full practices under his belt, even as he is rocking the cast. Of course, there is one man who is certainly appreciative of the competitive nature – head coach Pete Carroll.

Not missing a practice even with a cast? One way to get Carroll to notice your passion for football.

Once again, NFL players really are built different. Hopefully JSN is able to keep his wrist safe at practice, even in the cast. The Seahawks are going to need his services to push their offense to the next level.
