I worked out with a UC legend

Tony Pike and I have worked together for two years during Bengals training camp and throughout the regular season. Today, we worked together in a different capacity. I got to do my best Armon Binns impression. It wasn't always pretty, but it was much better than Mo Egger's workout with Dustin Grutza. Tony may or may not have compared me to Wes Welker. 

After a 30-minute throwing session, in which I ran every route in the route tree (I did, ask Tony), we completed a bootcamp workout. We survived both sessions and even smiled in the picture below. Tony said we shouldn't smile, but I was just happy to catch passes from the greatest quarterback in UC history.

P.S. There's been a ton of talk about Colin Kaepernick not being on an NFL roster. After today, I have no clue why Tony Pike isn't on an NFL roster. He can still sling it!
