HOUSTON (KTRK) -- Texans safety Quintin Demps is entering his ninth NFL season and understands all the hard work that goes into a season, before the season. The Texans have made some key additions to their roster, and the hope is, that it translates to wins.
"It's going to be a big year. We made some big moves this offseason," says Demps. "Everybody is excited, but we must come together and gel, and not play off paper but play off tape."
We caught up with Demps at the Wendel D. Ley Track and Holloway Field at University, after he worked out at the Texans facility. Demps continues to put in the extra work.
"I'm just hungry man. Like Bill O'Brien always says, you can't work less the older you get, you gotta work more," says Demps. "The grind is the fun part. It takes a different animal to say that. The hard work is the fun part because you know it pays off. You kind of feel good when you know you are outworking everybody.
If life of an NFL player isn't busy enough, Demps and his wife are expecting their 4th child soon. "Fatherhood is the greatest thing ever. Just having my kids love me no matter what. Bad game or good game, it is the same appreciation."
