Heads up on today's Gaines Adams piece
I assume there are some readers of the blog who are not necessarily readers of the newspaper, so I wanted to point out today's Gaines Adams feature that I made reference to on Wednesday.
In a nutshell, it's about how Adams has overhauled his diet to get in better physical shape while really hitting the weight room hard. Before now, he admits he had a consistent diet of junk food from McDonald's and other fast-food joints. You can already see a major difference in his physique, so the changes have had an impact.
And, just to be totally clear, this is not a rip job on Gaines. In fact, I say kudos to him for recognizing he was doing himself a disservice and committing to making changes. That's a sign of maturity and another reason why I think he'll be a pretty formidable player for a long time. He certainly looked quick and agile in last week's open practice and that's what his coaches hope to see on the field this fall.
