Injecting a little youth into our team, Jeff Janis has a great opportunity to balance football with his passion for the outdoors by playing in Green Bay. Entering his sophomore year in the NFL, look for Janis to get more playing time as he pulls in more touchdown passes from Aaron Rodgers.
A Colorado native who grew up hunting, our team's tight end knows his way around a rifle and bow. Dreessen always saw football as a way to fund his outdoor hobbies and proved it by buying some large plots of land that he likes to hunt on. Welcome to the team!
One of the best kickers of all time, there's no better choice than Adam Vinatieri. It's no surprise this South Dakota native enjoys the outdoors and can be found on the hunt when he's not suited up or with his family.
There's less than one week to go until the 2015 NFL season kicks off and for those of us who just can't get enough football and need something beyond cheering for our favorite teams, fantasy football is the perfect remedy. Each season, millions and millions of fans are drawn to the fun game of drafting and managing a team of superstars, regardless of which jerseys they wear on the field, and following their progress throughout the season.
There are plenty of pro football players who love the outdoors and have treestands and fishing boats waiting for them once they take off their pads. We thought it would be fun to compile an All-Outdoorsman fantasy team made up of NFL players, past and present, that we'd want to sit on our roster and join us on a chilly morning in the field or on the lake.
