This week, I sat down for conversations with Philadelphia wide receiver Torrey Smith and Houston head coach Bill O'Brien. Smith, who played with Colin Kaepernick last year, talked about  whether Kaepernick is a distraction, and why he thinks the out-of-work quarterback deserves a spot on a roster. Smith also discussed the social responsibilities of football players, and his goal this season to be an impact player again after two poor years with the Niners. O'Brien talks about the return of J.J. Watt after back surgery and the influence of mentor Bill Belichick on his career. What I found particularly enlightening from our conversation is O'Brien's description of the challenges as an NFL coach of having a special-needs teenager.
