Nate Jackson, a former Denver Bronco, wrote an open letter to Andrew Luck and Robert Griffin III (the number 1 and 2 draft picks this year) about what life is like as a football player in the NFL:

Once the whistle blows on Sundays, you’ll be released from captivity, and you’ll be free for three hours to truly live your dreams on the grandest scale you can imagine, against the best athletes on the planet. You will win or you will lose, but then the football game will end. The NFL game never will. Godspeed, boys.
