Untased By His New RoleDecember 5th, 2012
Joe’s always game for writing about Geno Hayes, especially when it’s so close to the two-year anniversary of what arguably was the most memorable moment of the Raheem Morris era — when Hayes played nightclub tough guy and got tased by Tampa cops but the volts didn’t take him down.
“This is not my first time around, this is not my first rodeo,” Hayes said Wednesday before practice at Halas Hall. “It was great getting the good experience in preseason and get accustomed to the defense and accustomed to the guys I was out there playing ball with day in and day out. It’s a great opportunity. Any time you get the opportunity to step on the field and make plays, it’s big.”
Amazingly, Hayes, one of Bruce Almighty’s last draft picks in 2008, is still just 25 years old.
Joe wishes Hayes well.
