Slow Getting Up

A Story of NFL Survival from the Bottom of the Pile

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.

Description

One man's odyssey into the brutal hive of the National Football League

As an unsigned free agent who rose through the practice squad to the starting lineup of the Denver Broncos, Nate Jackson took the path of thousands of unknowns before him to carve out a professional football career twice as long as the average player. Through his story recounted here—from scouting combines to preseason cuts to byzantine film studies to glorious touchdown catches—even knowledgeable football fans will glean a new, starkly humanized understanding of the NFL's workweek. Fast-paced, lyrical, dirty, and hilariously unvarnished, Slow Getting Up is an unforgettable look at the real lives of America's best athletes putting their bodies and minds through hell.

Customer Reviews

Great book

I loved this book. It never dawned on me what a career in the NFL is like when your not a starter or a superstar. It gave me a different perspective of the game and a new appreciation for the athletes. So much of what you hear about football is glamorous and sensational. It's refreshing to hear honestly about the good and the bad.
