New York Giants left tackle Will Beatty knows he’s not living up to the contract extension he signed this past offseason.
Beatty believes he changed the way he played for the worse in order to try and live up to the hype that followed him after signing a five-year contract worth up to $38.75 million contract extension.
“I know I came into this year trying to do way too much and trying to change who I was to fulfill the media hype,’’ Beatty said via the New York Post. “It’s like you got the contract, now eyes are on you, people are expecting more from you and you’re trying to live up to it. My first big contract, I’m like I want to earn this contract, I want to make sure they know that I’m not just a fluke and I’m going out there just not being me, not being the guy that got me to this contract.’’
