LOS ANGELES – Year 3 in the NFL has gotten off to an unconventional start for Los Angeles Rams offensive lineman, Jamil Demby.
“OTA (organized team activity) workouts were supposed to start they’re supposed to start April 20th. So I guess right now it’s just continuing to find out a plan of action,” Demby said over the phone.
As the former Maine Black Bear waits news on preseason activities, he continues to do what most of us are doing.
“Hop on a few webinars may take a few calls take a few interviews, catch up with family, catching up on some old Netflix series I may not have caught up on,” he said.
Who am I kidding, that’s only a sliver of his day. After all he is an NFL lineman.
“I go to a facility nearby, I get treatment and I work out from about 8-12 p.m., 8-1p.m.,” Demby added.
“You know every two to three hours I’m always eating because right now I’m trying to put a little mass on,” he said.
Last season was a big one for Demby. The Rams shuffled him at every position on the offensive line and he saw his first game action against the Cleveland Browns in Week 3.
But, this year he’s trying to find his niche.
“I know for sure I’m definitely guard tackle so just continuing to be ready for both or even center so,” Demby said.
As he said it all starts with his body. The pandemic has proven tough, but he’s continuing to prepare for what he hopes will be the next step in his growth as an NFL lineman.
“There’s going to be a lot of younger guys that have to step up there going to be a lot of different people who are getting new opportunities so I think that right there in yourself is just being a competitor in this league you’re going to have that chip on your shoulder,” Demby said.
