With NFL training camps opening over the next couple of days, I wanted to talk to a player about what life is like during that time. Texans linebacker Connor Barwin joined the show to discuss that and much more. Barwin is not only a Hot Clicks fan, but, as he's shown on Twitter, he's one of the more engaging players in the league. On the podcast, we talked about why he thinks a gay NFL player would be accepted by his peers, Jeremy Lin going to Houston, the possibility of replacement referees and more.You can listen to the podcast below, download it on iTunes or download it to your mp3 player.
