New York Giants coach Joe Judge held his first media availability of training camp on Friday, and was adamant that whatever sacrifices players and coaches have to make due to COVID-19 the privilege of fulfilling NFL dreams is worth it.

“The thing I want to emphasize on my team is we have to make responsible decisions, all of us.” Judge said. “What I’ve got to think personally about is it’s not just where I go. I’ve got to be conscious of where my wife and children are. Who are they around on a daily basis? What am I bringing back to the team?

“Listen, there’s some sacrifices we have to make. Everybody’s made sacrifices to get to this level. If the biggest thing we have to do is for half a year wear masks around each other, distance a little bit and when we go home BE HOME I think that’s a pretty fair tradeoff to be able to be part of the National Football League.”

Here is more of what Judge said, via the Big Blue View Twitter account.
