The COVID-19 pandemic has thrown the country into mass confusion.

Look at the Denver Broncos and NFL — right now teams would be going through organized team activities as a way to get ready for the 2020 season. Players like Jurrell Casey would be working with their new teammates and coaches at the Broncos’ facility. Now, Casey hasn’t been able to spend time at the facility let alone in Denver. It’s definitely a crazy time.

On Friday’s Broncos Country Tonight, Casey joined Ryan Edwards and Benjamin Allbright to talk about the trade and how he’s handled the offseason — mentally and physically.

“It’s definitely tough,” Casey said. “You’re constantly thinking, ‘Am I getting in the best shape possible with in-home workouts?’ Are you able to get in the playbook the way you need to; especially someone like me who’s getting traded somewhere else? Getting with coaches is harder to do. You can’t necessarily get that extra guidance through the playbook, so you really have to lock in on your own.”

The other aspect Casey touched on is when the season and training camp could start and how quickly things will get rolling when we get closer to “normal.”

It’s always an experience to get traded to a new team and city, then you add the current state of the country to the mix and it’s easy to get a little lost. But Casey is doing the best he can to stay sharp mentally in an usual moment in time.
