Those are the words of linebacker Spencer Paysinger, who today signed his restricted free agent tender and will remain with the Giants.
The statement applies to the fourth-year pro, who came in as an undrafted rookie in 2011 out of Oregon, earned his stripes on special teams, and now is a veteran member of the linebacker corps.
In three seasons, Paysinger has missed just one game while recording 125 tackles, 74 of which came last season when he started a career-high 10 games. That's in addition to 35 special teams tackles, the most by a Giant from 2011-2013, according to STATS.
The second in that span is fellow linebacker Mark Herzlich, who was also undrafted coming out of college the same year as Paysinger and recently signed a new contract to remain a Giant.
