Going through Seahawks news, I stumbled across a Burleson tidbit that interested me. He is headed out to train hardcore before the training camp.
Audio for interview here...some of the article below.
Burleson is headed for Arizona to train at Athletes' Performance. Burleson said he plans to be down there for a month, and that his agent Ken Sarnoff provided him with the opportunity to work out at the workout facility for elite athletes.
Burleson said it’s important for him to come into camp in the best shape possible because of the competition at receiver and he’s in a contract year.
“I don’t think I can afford to relax too much,” Burleson said. “There’s too much at stake for this team, this organization. We’re just trying to get our name back out there, trying to climb back to the top of the mountain.
“And for me as an individual, I want to go into this last year in the best shape of my career. And I know if I’m out here I might have some distractions. I might be tempted to travel or be tempted to vacate. But if I’m in Arizona and I’m working out five times a week, twice a day, I’m not going to be tempted to go anywhere because it’s what I have to do.”
