It also came just months after he was shot and a friend killed celebrating his selection by the Giants.“It felt really good. I called my mom and we were on the phone for an hour and a half. It was crazy because we were just talking about how far I have come. Coming from Jamaica and all of the adversity I have been through, and now being here doing my dream. It’s just crazy being out there on the field,” Ballentine said. “I had never been to an NFL game before and (now) here I am, on the field.

It’s just a good little thing.”Peppers said the idea was “a room thing,” and that a new trophy is handed out for every turnover.Peppers, Antoine Bethea “hit it off”Here’s Peppers talking about the relationship between Bethea and himself:“That’s a great dynamic. We kind of hit it off from the jump, I bounce stuff off of him all the time. He has played in this system before but now things are really starting to slow down for me so I’m not asking him as many questions as I was,” Peppers said. “It’s definitely good having a veteran guy back there to tell you watch this and that before the play so you keep it in the back of your mind, and it gives you a chance to make some big time plays.
