By: Barry Barnes, Founder

EAST RUTHERFORD, NJ – The NFL rule book is massive with instructions of do’s and don’t’s, almost biblical in a sense. Knowing the what to do and enforcing the league’s boundaries is half the battle.

After enduring the process of transferring from one program to another, and journeying through the NFL Regional Combine, former Tennessee Tech quarterback Michael Birdsong took his biggest step towards his NFL dream by accepting a tryout for the Seattle Seahawks.

Birdsong has a big arm to accompany his 6-5, 241-pound frame. Clearly, Birdsong’s biggest asset is his competitive nature to win when the chips are down because his will won’t allow him to fail.

After two solid seasons at James Madison, Birdsong transferred to Marshall. When the starting opportunity presented itself in his senior season, the red-head rifling quarterback did not hesitate in leading the Herd to an impressive victory over Purdue in comeback fashion.

After speculation of a transfer, Birdsong graduated from Marshall and used his remaining year of eligibility by filtering his talents to Tennessee Tech where he practically dominated.

Knowingly that NFL scouts would not kick Tennessee Tech’s door down to evaluate their talents, Birdsong executed his skill set at the Washington-held NFL Regional Combine to show out a decent showing.

Shortly following a solid Pro Day where he demonstrated his athletic ability and unquestioned throwing skills, Birdsong is back at square one. This time on the NFL stage.

Birdsong’s journey was laced with ups and downs, but one consistent action he displayed throughout his path is that he won’t be denied.

And the Seahawks will soon find out.

Note: The NFL Regional Combine has a total of 23 players from the 2017 trials in NFL rookie mini-camps.
