"Out of a man's great pain can bring great promise." - Michael Irvin
Those words came Sunday morning out of the mouth of a former enemy of the Green Bay Packers about a man who, like Irvin, has had his battles with addiction and struck rock bottom.
Johnny Jolly's story, told on NFL Network Sunday morning, has moved the hearts of Packers Planet again.
Nice piece by @Andrea_Kremer on Johnny Jolly. Prodigious talent but could drift, always worried in offseason w/him in Houston.— Andrew Brandt (@adbrandt) October 13, 2013
