DJ Williams, one of six TE hoping to make the team, includes cow-wrestling in his fitness routine: “That works out real good, especially if you get them with the baby calf; they’re really aggressive. … That really helped.

It’s very impressive. Usually, you say, ‘Let’s go cow tipping,’ and they feel it’s a good rush when the cows start chasing you and stuff. They think it’s to impress them, but I’m really working on my football stuff at the same time. Two birds, one stone.”
