Falcons 2009 1st round draft pick Peria Jerry has had a difficult start to his career, battling injuries in the past few seasons. It's been a long road back for Jerry after a serious knee injury sidelined him for much of his rookie season.
But 2012 is looking a bit different, or at least from what we can tell from training camp. He's taking advice from John Abraham and Jonathan Babineaux, and just enjoying being healthy and back on the field.
Jerry had this to say on Monday:
"It feels good to be out there with Abe and Babs and they're telling me I'm looking good, and I'm learning from them, as well," he said. "It feels good to be out there with veteran guys that are pushing me to be a better player. I respect them and I give shout outs to Abe and Babs.
"I feel like I'm over the hump now," he added. "The only thing I can do is go out there and show everybody why I'm here."
