Even athlete needs their big break no matter how great of a player they are. On some occasions, luck seems to go aggressively against them, while sometimes their timings are simply too awkward. The National Football League is a very big deal for athletes, and just making it there is not enough. They have to keep up the good work, they have to rise in ranking, and they have to prove their competence in every game. Depending on their performances in the year 2016, we have come up with a list of those star athletes whose future looks bright for the upcoming year:
Dak Prescott is the quarterback of the Dallas cowboys and has a major hand behind the team’s 7 straight wins. This naturally shows how much of an important and major part he has become of the team, and is expected to make waves in the coming years as well.
Emmanuel Sanders has been flying with his performances since the year 2014. The fact that he has caught 177 passes and has scored 15 touchdowns makes him a very great player. Then, there is his fiery nature, tough attitude, and strong will that have earned him a great fan following in Denver. This star athlete is a gem of a player and will definitely rise and shine in the upcoming years.
The quarterback of the Green Bay Packers, Rodgers is one of his kind, with the great skill and talent he possesses. He is even dubbed as the best by many. Though the year 2015 had been a rocky one for him, Rodgers made a great comeback in 2016 and ended up with a passer rating of 122.5 in 2016, officially making the record of the highest single season passer rating in the history of The National Football league. Rodgers has everything that it takes to be a good passer, including strength, accuracy, health, and most importantly; will. Rodgers has potential and can definitely make a great comeback in the coming years.
The patriots quarterback, Brady might be aging but his great skills do not seem to be going anywhere. If anything, his game is only getting better. Hard work is simply the key to everything, and Brady has proved it in the last season when his hard work reflected in his performance. Maybe Brady is not as young as he used to be, but he definitely has 16 years of experience and knowledge to make the tradeoff worthwhile. Age is just a number anyway, and he can prove it in the upcoming games.
Tyler Lockett showed great potential when he first came to the NFL. However, maybe the expectation placed on his shoulders was too high and eventually, people showed disappointment – which doesn’t mean he is not worthy. The current situation of his team, however, has too much riding on his shoulders, and we are ready to place our trust in him.
These athletes are working as hard as they can. Now, we only hope that time, fate, and chance is with them to see them make it big.
