Darren Waller had to overcome quite a bit to get to where he is right now in the NFL. The New York Giants tight end struggled with drugs and alcohol in the past, and in a recent interview with the 2nd wing podcast, the Pro Bowl tight end revealed his addiction to the listeners, and even said he overdosed while signed to an NFL team back in 2017,.
In the video, Waller mentions drinking 20 beers and talked about his self destruction.
He stated, “I thought that once I made it to the league, I’d be like, happy, like my life couldn’t get no better. That wasn’t the case.”, on the 2nd Wind Podcast.
Waller talked about August 11th, 2017 the day he overdosed.
“I sat in the car; it was like I just laid my head back and woke up, and it was nighttime. I felt like it was daytime. Woke up in the nightmare, and I was like I sweated my whole body out.”
I am so glad he has overcome the addiction.
