Cam Heyward is mad serious about his game, both on and off the field. The Steelers‘ defensive tackle is known for giving his all and not taking anything lightly. This was once again evidenced recently as Heyward expressed his disappointment with Pro Football Focus for posting a chart assigning him a meager $3 to build the perfect defensive line room. Heyward was quick to respond to the tweet, saying Love being called a 3-dollar d lineman! Great to know what y’all think my worth.

“Too many people ask why I take things so personal and I shouldn’t take everything to heart. Let me share my insight- I get to live out my dream out everyday. I get to work and think about how I can be better with every fiber in my body. When I win it’s how do I duplicate or improve in the next performance. When I lose I feel like I let the place where I was born down,I let my teammates down because I can be better. I want to be known as the best at my position because I don’t think people play the game like me and I’ll work my tail off for it. I inherited this game from my pops and I owe it to him and the fam to carry on this legacy. Also you inherit so much history and legacy when you put on the black and gold. I owe it to my teammates to take it personal and be accountable. I guess all I’m saying is more work to be done….., he wrote.
