Being a rookie at the highest level of your craft isn't easy, but words of wisdom by veterans can make the journey feel less intimidating. In a video presented by Fanatics during the NFL Rookie Premiere, several NFL legends such as Joe Montana, Aaron Rodgers, Jerry Rice, Peyton Manning and Rob Gronkowski gave some inspiration of a few of the NFL fresh faces.
"A lot of great friends tell me you're a better person than you are a quarterback, which says a lot because I've seen some of those throws you make," Brady told the former Florida Gators star.
The rookie said that getting positive messages from people in general feels good, but this particular one was special.
"When it comes from Tom Brady is just a little bit different, because you don't really get that every day. So it's a different experience," Richardson said.
"Luke, congrats on getting your foot in the door, now go kick it down. Be great today," Schoonmaker read. "I got chills. I mean, that's crazy."
"It's truly a blessing to be in the position that you're in," Peterson said in his video message. "Remember this, you get out what you put in."
The rookie explained why he felt he was thrown a curve ball with that one.
"He actually said a quote that my dad said to me, to this day, all the time. 'You get out what you put in.' Man, it means a lot." Scott said.
