03:16 PM ET 05.26 | Jeff Demps has always been a track star in football pads. That much was evident during his time with the Patriots, where his commitment to his Olympic track career was greater than his commitment to his football career. This offseason, New England traded the former Gator to Tampa Bay, and some of the same commitment issues are creeping up. Demps won't join the team for any of the offseason workouts, according to the Tampa Bay Times.

Difficult to understand why he thinks he wants to play football when track is the siren song he listens to.

Still, he has hundreds of thousands of reasons to take football seriously.
