Joe Anderson stood outside of the Houston Texans stadium for a few days, holding a cardboard sign that read, "Not homeless...but STARVING for success." It also read, "Will Run Routes 4 Food" an included the hashtags, "#Whateverittakes, #UnderDog, #Hungry and #IBelieve."
Well, persistence paid off. On Tuesday, the wide receiver was signed to the New York Jets practice squad, reuniting him with former Chicago Bears teammate Brandon Marshall.
Anderson took to his Instagram account to express his joy.
"I can't Say it enough GOD IS GOOD," he wrote.
Being on the field sure beats standing outside.
