Adam Butler completely changed his body ahead of training camp

When you’re dedicated to your craft, you’ll do a lot to achieve your goals.
New England Patriots defensive tackle Adam Butler made the team’s 53-man roster last year as an undrafted free agent, but he knows he always has to be on his game and work hard for what he’s got – which even includes changing his training methods and body weight.
And now coming into this season, he’s at 292 pounds after head coach Bill Belichick mentioned last year that he could add some “quality weight.”
Through all of these different training techniques and weight fluctuations, Butler is just doing as he is asked. He knows that he is always fighting for a roster spot and that there’s a lot of competition out there.
“There’s no comfort level,” Butler said. “I could be out of here tomorrow. If that’s what they want. But I’m just going to keep my head down and keep working to get better, and I’m going to do what I do best and run to the football and rush the passer and do anything they’ll tell me to do.”
