Former Packers TE Colt Lyerla sends a message and video to every NFL team

Former Oregon Ducks tight end Colt Lyerla is 100 percent now after suffering a knee injury last year while with the Packers. Now the firmer Duck bad boy has sent out a video with this message to any NFL club that might be willing to give him another chance.

“To the NFL teams out there, obviously there have been a lot of bad decisions made in the past. But the past is the past and it’s going to stay in the past. 2015 has been a good year to me. The injury has healed well. I’ve been in a substance-abuse program for the past year and a half. I haven’t failed a test since, and my DUI case I had back in September has been officially dismissed,” he said. “We’re moving forward, and like an old coach I used to have, Chip Kelly, used to say: win the day. I think I have a long string of winning days, and I’m going to do whatever it takes to keep that process going moving forward and make an NFL 2015 roster.”
