Jerely Worthy says everyone takes a snap off on occasion

Jerel Worthy does not do anything anyone else doesn’t.

That’s the way he describes it, anyway.

The defensive tackle from Michigan State, drafted in the second round by the Green Bay Packers, says he takes plays off from time to time just like everyone else.

Huh?

The film speaks for itself,” Worthy told Rob Reischel of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. “People criticize and say I may take a play off here or there. There's nobody in the NFL game today or college or all the way down to pee-wee who plays every play full speed, full-go without getting tired. It's impossible.

“All I can say is I'm going to come in and try to continue to work to be a lot more consistent, and I'm going to be a lot more consistent. That's going to be my goal. The plays that showed up in the highlight tape, that's the same plays that I'm going to transfer up to the NFL and do it on a consistent basis.”

Worthy is considered an explosive force. He’s 6-2, 308 pounds and has the quickness on the interior to be a wrecking ball. But if he isn’t a consistent performer, he will have trouble getting on the field. Coaches want players that provide maximum effort on every snap.
