Jonathan Dwyer isn’t sure at this point what his role will be or how much playing time he will see in Saturday night’s preseason game against the Buffalo Bills, but he is ready for whatever comes his way.
“I’m just going to be prepared for whatever they need me to do,” said Dwyer.
And this year, more than ever, he truly feels prepared for the task at hand – whether it means starting if Isaac Redman can’t go or coming in at any point.
In his third season Dwyer has matured, not only gaining a better grasp of what is required on the field but off the field as well.
“I’m treating everything as business and I’m just very serious about everything I do, whether it’s on the field or off the field,” said Dwyer. “I’m going to take care of what’s important to me. My job is important to me and I just want to show everyone that I mean business.”
On the field that has been the case when he is given the opportunity. Dwyer saw limited action last season, but when he was in there he made it count, carrying the ball 11 times for 107 yards against the Tennessee Titans last season, including a career-long 76-yard run.
“When you’re out there you had better make something happen,” said Dwyer. “Throughout the course of a football game you never know if that play may happen. Every time I touch the ball I try to do something positive with it, even if it’s just gaining two yards. I’m going to make sure that two yards looks good.
“I’m just trying to go out there every time and make the best of every opportunity.”
