I had the opportunity to interview Las Vegas Raiders superstar tight end Darren Waller, as he’s partnering with Icy Hot’s new Pro line.

Waller was, as advertised, very easy to talk to and a great person, and we talked about everything from his contract extension that’s in the works to the tattoo he has of Winston Churchill!

Topics Discussed:

  • He made it clear he wants a fair deal, but he also expressed how important it is to be with his teammates during OTAs to show leadership. That was powerful stuff.
  • Playing in the triple option at Georgia Tech and how that helped him transition to tight end.
  • Position change in Baltimore.
  • Waller’s breakout 2019 campaign.
  • Overcoming setbacks last season.
  • Adjusting to Josh McDaniels and the Raiders’ new coaching staff.
  • New/expanded role for the Pro Bowler in 2022?

... and much more!
