This week, the league's newest players are taking a crash course in all that goes into being a professional athlete at the Rookie Symposium. The players are taking part in panel discussions on a variety of topics, including health and safety, non-discrimination, domestic and family life and drug awareness. The league invited several former and current players to share their stories of success and failure.
On Monday, Cincinnati cornerback Adam ``Pacman'' Jones spoke to the players about his off-field struggles. Jones recently pleaded not guilty to a misdemeanor assault charge and has had other issues that led to suspensions.
San Diego linebacker Manti Te'o said the lesson he learned from Jones' speech ``was to never give up.''
The players took a break on Tuesday and instructed some area kids in football drills.
