"With what they call a single ventricle. He had one chamber of his heart and he lived his life like that and he was doing really well Lived a fairly standard quality of life for the most part had some restrictions and then about a little over a month ago. My wife and i just noticed he was. He wasn't himself. He was getting really bogged down. We thought maybe he was just tired. After a few days we took him into the hospital and within hours. He was admitted into the icu in a heart failure and they said his heart was no longer able to keep up. It was failing and there was no reversing. It and we began at that day. We began the process of getting him listed for to be heart transplant recipient so he was eight years old. Still eight years old And we started that process. He was listed and we didn't know how long that process was gonna take we were we. Were in the icu. For the entire duration of waiting for the heart A big reason. We share those videos and fortunate to be able to talk about it on a platform. This is because there's so many people out there who had these stories right and they're sitting in their hospital room in there by themselves alone and they they feel like they're the only one in the world doing this and we just wanna shine a little light that like you don't only have to share your great moments right like you don't only have to share when you're throwing a cool tight anything with george kittle and you're having a blast talking shit with you guys like all of us have lives that at times suck right like it happens and this was one of them so we hunker down not knowing not knowing how long the process would be by the grace of god and him being in certain criteria of size and blood type and antibody rejections in liber failed like all these billion factors that go into this algorithm of qualifying you. We were notified That he would that he would be after about a little over about ten days. We were notified that there was a hard match and on june fourth dj underwent open heart surgery and he came home on wednesday. He's been home. He's been home now for the weekend. And i we could. We could have a two hour talk on just what that process entails but it's It's remarkable what what he's been through. And what these doctors can do. I mean they literally cut his chest open. They took his heart out and they flew in on a private jet another heart in a cooler literally on a cool in a cooler of ice reconnected and started back up. that's unreal. i mean it's wild. Yeah and it's You know anyone who's got kids. Like i said i will try to watch the video and i think you don't really understand it until you have a kid of your own. You're like you know you do anything literally anything and like to go through that. Fuck man it was. I'm just so happy. He's good what's like is he gonna live a somewhat normal life now with with his heart. They say his his immediate life right now once he recovers. It's about a year process until he's about like done reason like serious immunosuppressants and the body doesn't reject the heart so that there's no like going out and about it's almost like he has to live in kovin year. Which is kind of weird that we actually know what that you know how to live with him for the time being but it's about a year process until he can like venture back out into school settings in big groups in act reallocate himself. Acclimate himself back. Out into life but You know that the one downside to getting a heart transplant at such a young age. Typically why they try to prolong having to get it as the hearts don't last forever right now. Arts lasts like give or take twenty years so when you're it takes the twenty eight as the medicine stands today You know and you got to do it again. So that's where things get a little dicey but every year their ability to push off rejection. Keep your body you know you know in coordination with your heart and keeping things working gets better and better and better so we try not to think of that. We have to do this again in twenty years. We hope that it's fifty years there. Whatever it is and we just thankful for every day that he's hold like the little just he's very adam and we're gonna love that we have them and you know the hardest. I'll tell you. I'll be honest with you guys. The hardest part. The hardest part rationalize is like the mix the dual motions of getting the call. That your son's likes going to be saved because without this hard was not going to be able to live. He's you know he was on medicine. That was the only reason his heart pumped hooked up. You'd wear like a backpack and it was all around the clock and that was what would let his heart failing his failing heart work right but the reality is right now in our stage of medicine someone else has to have a tragedy to allow them to be able to donate a heart and it's not just someone dies. They have to die like in certain ways to make their organs ability to be donated. And it's just a really really hard hard right. You know at the moment you're having a of relief that your day has year at that very moment in time someone else somewhere in the country is having their worst day at so so hard but it also is a good reminder that if you're not an organ donor you should. You should be an organ donor. Everyone out there like it's really really important thing thing and it's not there used to be a time whenever like well. They're going to harvest organs. No that's not how it works if something tragically happen to you. You could save someone else's life and that's like you got a story like this with tj. It's the best man real and how about this that we don't know anything about organ donor. They're not allowed to share any personal information. We don't know the age the gender location but they donated seven organs. Seven families you start talking is or liver and pancreas and kidneys and heart and lungs. Seven lives so six other families like us have their hypothetically. Hopefully everything went. Well have their son daughter husband whatever because of one person it's a it's a super easy. Step that everyone can take just when you're at the dmv you just check a box and that's all that it takes. You can be a world of difference like you said for seven different families. That's incredible how. How is he doing like mentally our spirits up. I imagine that for an eight year old. This has got to be. You know an extremely scary thing. Scary doesn't even really begin to describe it. But how has he handled this our spirits. Good spirits are awesome. I wish i could show you guys like my wife sent me a picture. I take my other. So i brought him home from the hospital. Wednesday after being there for a month brought him home wednesday and thursday.

"Both the people that you know and also just people that along the way you kinda rub shoulders with but you know george being so tight end down in nashville and having great connection to them. We're gonna have fifty fifty or seventy five or so kids come out on On thursday and in the afternoon we're going to do like an hour long. All the tight ends will be out there. We're going to set up drills and do like a fun free clinic for all those kids the come on out and we're gonna take our pause from our View to kind of spend spend the afternoon with those kids before we get back into the classroom sessions in the video. Prep and all that stuff that we're going to do with the group so it's gotta be super cool. So how does it work when you're going to be kind of teaching some of your competitors like i know for you like you're gonna be planning. It's these guys this year and probably you to greg. Because you always do that thing. Where like three quarters of the way through the year people are like oh greg olsen can come back and make a roster so you might you might be out there again. Next year like is there any sort of Like competitive instinct. That takes over where you're like. I wanna teach the sky but maybe not teach them everything that i know. I mean when one tiny succeeds like we were all succeeding. Then everyone gets to benefit off each other. You know whether that's from guys playing well and getting contracts tight -sition gets paid more and more like a big part of that titans of mid making under ten million dollars for ever and like we just kinda broke through. That were still greg. Said like we're still getting paid less than a lot of other positions. And i i. I like the tide and does live and you can look at the last ten super bowls. I think every team. That's one is under dom very very talented tight. End just like as with when it super bowl so i mean i think the most important thanks you might as well pay the tight ends and i just kind what that number keep going up like a sitting when come together you learn and now i mean what's more important than counterfeits is like like i said he's gonna be really good but nfl is faster in college. And if he can sit in a room for two days and learn from guys greg olsen me travis kelsey mercedes lewis Luke stocker vets and their the learn a thing or two. I mean it's just gonna. I mean take ice career and hopefully like just an uphill tra trajectory all unit. It's all good. Are you going to teach a class. George where it's like. This is just how you be a beast in throw people off of you and just played that clip of the case the saints clip where you just had like four saints on you in the dome. Just tossing them everywhere. I'm going to talk about yak after catch and also gonna talk about Ram trucks rumble. Aachen and pass bro. Three topic okay. What about like a breakdown. His block day is one specific day of the week like. Hey we're just gonna basically focus on the part of our game. That's just throwing people out of the club today. That's i mean like you said that that's my. I got a thirty minute session on friday. It's all dedicated. Run blocking aspro. I'm gonna throw this out there next year. We should be invited and we should give a class on. How tight ends like you know. Be the most charismatic guys on your teams do interviews with part of my take and hopefully that will help you know. Raise your your star and maybe get you a couple of dollars more for that okay. Yeah it'll just be called how to get on part of my take and then you just have to write your phone number down and hand it to us and then you can leave and then just say something super super like is something that we can put on a headline and we're good to go.

I was played together last year in seattle. I invited him and he's locked. I think he's locked in canada. Right shannon shutdown. Truth i think we would probably wave are no former tight end. Experience waiver clause if you guys want to come down next year. Pack your cleats get in shape but you through camp will put you in. We'll see you guys to do it. I wanted to show up and do like thirty minutes. Zoom and get paid to nashville. I didn't. I didn't wanna do her. Powerpoint yeah. I didn't wanna do any athletic. Maybe all the kids. I can we can. We can point out to one of the kids would be like your podcast or you're not like just you're a blogger were scattered on a tight end like it's going to be nice to you. Know i gotta we've got to talk about Sharman is also one of our sponsors. And they're sitting down to life size. Bears really yes and they're gonna throw paper people. God okay. that's good that's good. Yeah did we're killing it. We're killing it tight. End us going to be. Did you guys in the annual tradition. Did you guys invite blake. Portal's blake of the year. get hands. yeah he. I mean people say that he awesome tight end including himself. He doesn't have good hands. Okay all right all right. Let's finish tests greg. I do actually wanna talk to you about this because it was a story a lot of people you know song line. It was very emotional. Your son tj. Just got a heart transplant I basically every time. The videos came up. I had to like i had to not watch it because it made me so emotional. Obviously been crazy time last few months. You know for your family. how is he doing. And what has is terrible question but like what has it been like. i can't even imagine. Yeah yes i mean. It's been wild. Since the day he was born we knew prior to him being born that he would be born with a long road to hoe. He was an essence. Four with only half of a heart so he literally only had one right ventricle if left. Untreated you die. So he was a he had three open heart surgeries before his second. Birthday in an sec. Lived with half of a heart which is kind of like our play on why we wear these shirts a lot..

Today has to be the first time that's ever happened. Show us no. I know i walk off. Defensive play you tell us. I know yes. No i count. I think it's a walk. It's a game winning triple boy. I'll do the research. It's happened before tim curtin would he was talking about earlier today. I think he said it was two thousand nine. Maybe doing with the mike. You're trying. it's some technical difficulties. It was sick though triple plays are triple blaze should replace no hitters because they're cooler than no hitters. Actually i think you should be able to run for triple play. What do you mean you on defense. You should be able to score a run. Yeah if you get a triple play. Yeah you should also be able to try to get a quadruple play. That's where run should happen. Just keep like if it's bases loaded. Try to get everybody out track. Even though you don't need to like a powerball strike out there. That's what should be. Those should be if you can get to four outs. Then you get a run. Okay so you can go down can do double play one. You get a triple play. Dash accounts run. I like that. Yeah so you're always just trying to get the extra out. You should absolutely figure out a way to score on defense instead of giving us like six more designated hitters like. I'm sure man fraud is going to do at some point here. Just give us what the fans want. And that's defensive runs four. yes so if you get. If there's two outs and you get a triple play. That should be two extra yup. That's all. I'm still looking for the right up there with the free. Throw right that well no. We know that this one's not legal the free throw thing. I knew that wasn't leaving. Wouldn't listen to us Jake you got it. It's the first time in yankees history. That turned triple plan would be one via walk the only team.

And they're i think they're in i in the in the overall standings now right red bulls. Yes they are in the constructors constructor's cup and daniel carter had a good race as well. So the pmt f is real This was the first time. I woke up a little hung over and i was like. Oh i can actually watch this. It's kind of it's we still gotta use. I love the show. I really do the show. I binge it like two weeks. it's still. I'm getting used to watching live. Because i don't really know what's going on. Well follow like who's doing well and who's not to follow and there are a lot of people online who are pretending. They know a lot more where it's like. Just just let's all just admit here that we don't know what we're talking about we're gonna overtake is about the only thing we're gonna figure it out towards push push push push. That was mega I something about just waking up and having a an announcer with an english accent soothing. Yeah it just works. I've got a really bad take but it's something that truly believes so. Share it with you guys in this room here. I think the cars are too loud. Know if they could make a worse just like twenty percent less noisy. Do you know what i'd be all in. I was actually listening to an f. One podcast no big deal Sounds accelerated it is They were actually saying they were. They were lamenting that. The cars are too soft. Oh really they have gotten a lot softer with like the alleged violation. Everything they used to be true. American not actually american muscle americans of and dick in fucking okay. I have a car that blows your ears out kinda engine. How 'bout this. I'll go either one of two ways with it. Make him a little bit softer or make them just really fucking loud. Yeah it doesn't sound like his right now. It just reminds me of the sale is in car forum. We were there in the background. And it's a high pitch. Tom and kind of annoying. So if it was a little bit quieter. I'd be happy. Or if it was just like make your bowls shake without one if you want to be real f. one okay. The cars are too soft too soft. There's it's become reasoning toy cars. Yeah it's the push affiliation of america europe. Yeah no seriously they. That is like a big. That's actually real complaint. Okay you talked me into it. I'm on board with it. is that it. Hey also track and field and swimming. Tis the season you. Oh i saw someone. I fuck. I can't remember. I should've screenshot at someone tweeted out and i thought it was a great idea ever. I'm sorry they're not giving you credit. Please let me know. I'll give you credit the olympics. If they had a lane for just regular average people for comparison would be so incredible if they had the tenth lane in a swimming pool. Be like all right. Let's find us like a fifteen pound overweight guy and just let him swim just to show how slow an average person was. it would be so fascinating to watch. I'd be cool. That another two ideas that i would have for so we'll also like the pool different colors. I think that'd be sick if it was like the Like eastern washington field or the central michigan. Like gimme some different. Looks to the plainfield and then if you took what. If one of those lanes just was basically an aquarium so you had all sorts of natural life in the pool but there was like glass that divided it so they weren't going to swim into the other guys lanes but just like in the middle of the pool. You get some octopuses. You get some some flounder. Maybe a couple of sharks. I think that'd be sick. Is i pitched that idea to mark cuban new the real shark tank where it's a pool full sharks and if you get to the other side then you get investment in your deal. Yeah i mean that sounds. It would be fun to watch. Sounds good too but it would be nice to see some marine life in the water. Yeah i will settle for the die. The myth die that makes the color when pissing the pool Just so we can watch them like. Hey that person pets yeah they all do but it'd be to watch in real time like up. They've pissed up. They passed in if the die was actually brown so it looked like the shot. Yeah that'd be fun either way just normal people like a normal guy just throwing the shot put eighteen feet yup. Just be very funny thing to watch all right. What's your oh who's back. Who's back of the week is couch. Cost weber's back in a big way. My favorite baseball player couch warburg.

"I was just talking to doug gottlieb about this. His efficiency is. It's really a very much like michael jordan at the end of his career. Michael wasn't quite as vertical in his first three championships right like he was vertical. Michael switch hands the second three peat for michael. His efficiency was so amazing. Not a wasted motion and i mean in that game. Seven against the mavs twenty eight points. Ten boards nine assists zero turnovers. That is literally a perfect. Nba game number one. Chris paul intelligence toughness leadership in the fourth. Quarter this postseason now. This is go time right. That's where stars are stars. The fourth quarter. He has nineteen assists and no turnovers. That is insane. That would be a quarterback at the end of the season having nineteen touchdowns no picks in the fourth quarter that is unheard of. The sons have won seven straight playoff games. They remain one of the league's unionist teams. So he's doing this with fairly new head coach a new system new players and he's averaging sixteen and nine on fifty one percent shooting in the playoffs after a shoulder injury so this guy has been injured in the playoffs and had to nurse himself back to one hundred percent health. Chris paul is my mvp kind of horrifying looking trophy but nonetheless durant by the way we know yokich is great but he just got swept. You know what it is about the mvp. Because i agree. It is a regular season award and it has the value right because we are constantly devaluing the nba regular season. So i think it is important to recognize people that do give their effort and performance during the regular season fans which yoga one hundred percent deserving of it. The problem is they change the narrative around the every single year. Which makes it difficult to track. Who is supposed to be the matters what matters and then because they change it every single year because it's sometimes becomes a narrative award we get to the postseason and you have the mvp against someone like chris. Paul and you can then start to separate what that middle word means which is value. Not that yokich wasn't valuable to this team. Of course he was but chris. Paul transformed that organization. His sons are disaster. If your ears if you're the most valuable player you're not gonna get swept..

Trent dilfer catholic so trent is hosting it for us. He's an unbelievable facility. He's been awesome Like you know what can we. These guys set us apart and the sponsor she bread no body armor One of the first people that jumped onboard bridgestone's local local company. We re able to tie local charity stuff so this is not a for profit camp. The the money that were able to raise through the sponsors goes towards the guys hotels and putting them up in all the remaining dollars.

Can we come can become the college thing gets a little crazy with sponsors bud light and beer so rescind with just nfl but it's been The response we've got has been incredible while the manning's have the passing academy and now you've got to tight end academy and academy. It sounds like it's going to be a huge success and you know and you're saying that you are phenomenal guy. And i'm not just saying that you know i feel that about you travis. Kelsey is one of my favorite guys to be around in the george. Kittle is incredibly entertaining. These are these are great. Fun guy this group of guys. If it's gonna be a blast and we got we got guys from all across the league you know. Seventeen year vets like mercedes. Lewis has come in until down. The kyle hits who's a never stepped foot on an nfl field so we have a really cool scope of experience backgrounds colleges You know guy trying to fight to make the practice squad ad or a five time pro right like me and that's what we wanted it to be. This is not something like exclusive. you haven't made the pro bowl you can't. This is teaching. This is a learning opportunity. It's an opportunity to get up there in a classroom and for twenty minutes. You're you know. George kittle talked about what he's able to bring to his game and teach you routes and travis kelsey talk about whether and how snaps his routes and comes downhill know whatever. We're going to touch on a lot of different things and then be able to bring that classroom talk out onto the field and allow guys to kind of work through it hands on work with them teach them and then at night got a great dinner and cut loose ten relaxed and enjoy each other and no guys around the league so it's kind of a crew fraternity its position. That's really picking up a lot of interest. There's a lot of the guys you touched on. There's a lot of really cool personalities. Now that guys are starting to kind of primetime players in the nfl and We think this is an event that has some ability to be a long standing annual. Tradition will good luck with tight academy. I know you'll be a huge success. On fox this fall kevin burkhardt and most of all good luck to tj. And hopefully. he's home in time. For father's day there will be nothing. That would be nicer for you for your family for. Everybody and i could say that everybody. Who's listening to this. Podcast is pulling for tj to come home as soon as possible. I appreciate that. Thanks for having me on. And i enjoyed talking to you and areas the former. Nfl tight end. Greg olsen who will be a standout in his next line of work and already is making a huge difference. How many people could come on and talk about their son going through that process the way. He has incredible to me as a father of two children. If they have a cold if they have anything wrong. I get so worked up and so nervous and so anxious and he and his wife cara have been through so much and to detail what. It's like to receive a heart transplant. It was a total eye-opening education had no idea what goes into that. You hear about it. But nobody could imagine the detail that tj and the olson family has endured on the way to tj getting his new heart and again everybody is thinking of and pulling for tj in his continued recovery. Wish him the olson's nothing but the best. We wish greg at very happy father's day and we thank him for his time and insight into what is really an incredible situation or before we go one. Wish happy father's day to my father my father-in-law jeffrey schefter chuck steady man. I love and also want to say that on father's day week. My newest hobby is participating in this golf pool. That my friend. And i say his name here because you've got insulted. The less than i did mention his named eric freeman included. Me at the start of the year and the way this golf pool works. Is you pick one golfer every week. And if that golfer wins a million dollars you get a million points and if that alpher misses the cut you get zero points at that. Golfer finishes thirty six thirty thousand dollars. You get thirty thousand points. It goes twenty four weeks. The season divided into two halfs. You cannot pick the same golfer the first half of the season. You cannot pick the same golfer the second half of the season and so we are now in the second half of the season. We are two weeks in ten weeks to go and our team. Fortunately is in first place. But i could see how tenuous this is and it's become my weakened obsession to the point where my family they say. Oh golf is on again isn't it. I watch just about every stroke on the pj. From thursday to sunday if my golfer is alive and this past week i had thrill hatton who did a nice job finishing second although it's incredible to think that he finished second and a bunch of people have dustin johnson and i was living and dying with each bogey. Double bogey dustin. Triple bogey on the backside. Which had he just part of that whole he would have been a playoff with garrick ego. The south african golfer who went onto win the tournament this weekend. Point is i love this stuff. It is consumed during the off season in a way. I never would have imagined. And it. And i don't love this but it has influenced my moods if my golfers doing well. I am a happy guy if my golfers not doing well i'm pissed off. Zander's shafi we took him during the pga week he missed. The cut. man was angry that weekend.

"Rejection medicine a better understanding of your immune system and what leads to the heart failing all those things. They've made a lot of progress But as of today no this is not a fixed. But in the meantime he will theoretically and from the stories. We've heard he should live a better quality of life back than he did. Prior to the surgery and for how long no one knows. But we're talking a good amount of time and with the advancements in medicine and healthcare and what they're doing now we'll cross that bridge when we get there but his quality of life in the near future and going forward should be as close to normal as he'll ever get and with all that's going on. Is it hard for you to take a job with fox as you've done to be a broadcaster a color commentator this upcoming season for seasons to come is that hard now to leave home with tj in the condition that he's in with everything going on at the house yet. If this happened in the fall i would have had a step away I say wife all the time again. You talked before about how life works. If i didn't decide to retire last season white a little differently. And i felt like do began and this happened. I'm not sure what i would have been able to do it. You know especially. If i wasn't playing in charlotte i definitely couldn't have done. It happened in the summer. So it kinda happened. When i didn't have a lot going on but if this happened in the fall as a player as a commentator i don't even want to begin with that would have looked like i'm just not exactly sure You know how he would have pulled that off but thankfully i don't have to worry about it you know. I had all the time in the world to spend at the hospital. I had all the time in the world to take care of the other two. I had nothing really else to do the season with fox. That doesn't really start until september so at the time. We weren't really sure how long this was gonna last. But you know it the timing of everything. There's never a good time. But this wasn't a bad time to transition to a couple of other things. Before i let you go. Thank you very much for your time. You're going to be working with kevin. Burkhardt is my understanding and kevin burkhardt. Oddly enough cold some of your high school football games back in the day yup. Do you have any idea that he called your games. And what will it be like to work with him. I've known kevin for a long time as you said so. He went to college in my hometown in wayne new jersey. You went to william paterson university which is actually where my mother went and So he was working for like a local radio station like an like an. Am radio station w. g. h. To fifteen hundred or fifteen fifty on the am dial and he was a young aspiring commentator and he would call the high school playoffs like the game of the week or whatever it was he tells the story and last so he. He comes on like monday or friday of each week and sit in my dad. My dad was my coach and he would sit my dad's office and do like a production meeting with my dad and like get different storylines and that he would use it on the radio broadcasting call me and i had an older brother who played at the time Who head of me. So the other day so art stapleton. Who's now a beat writer up in new jersey giants at the time covered. Our team mocha leave for the for the new jersey newspaper. I think it was the record and got to know art really well. Our and kevin hosted like a playoff rivalry radio show at a local restaurant two thousand and he sent me and my dad the picks you the other day. So it's my dad. Kevin burkhardt art sable tin art and kevin or to host of sitting there with the radio. My crew sitting on one side are cross town rivals in their josie sitting on the other side of like a local hotdog shack. Talking about like the big upcoming playoff game and there's kevin burkhardt and he was like twenty five years old or whatever it was and It's just a really cool picture in the thank all these years later life has come. Full circle is pretty cool and now the twenty five year old kevin burkhardt will be your partner your tv partner this upcoming fall and i think it's awesome that you would even know the name of a newspaper beat writer back in the day. I covered preps in michigan chicago. Colorado i don't think anybody ever knew my name greg ever and nobody will remember the fact that i covered all those high school games back in the day. Somebody out there like we used to write articles about. You know schefter about me. I was the best running back backing. Oh yeah well you know it's funny. Juwan howard. Got the job at the university of michigan alamada. I covered one of his high school playoff games or one of his high school playoff games. I went and found the article that i wrote in the chicago tribune about him which i interviewed him extensively and i forward him the game story of this play of victory that he had that i wrote and i remember i remember being in the halls high school which want howard talking to him about the victory reading over the deel. It's kind of fun right. These are the things that i did back back in the day. It was kind of now. And there's some of that was probably more fun than what you do now in the the wholesomeness of high school a lot more innocent innocent like. That's what i mean. It wasn't the big business. But i mean those competitive and you know that like there was something supernatural inorganic about high school sports. That was just hard to replace. But i cared so much about riding a good game story and getting a good clip to send to the next newspaper so i could get hired for a job somewhere so that one day i do regain a pre game super bowl show with greg olsen data miami or whatever maybe right as done before let you go t which is the point of this whole podcast to begin with. What do we need to know about it. And what can you tell us about it. June twenty third. June twenty. Fifth and nashville. And i know. I owe this to you before i even go there that you have some big sponsors that help this event launch right. We have body armor as little shoutout right..

"Tj has been in the care of doctors at that facility since that time now in a week where we celebrate father's a great father in a great man greg olsen greg. When we made the plan to have this conversation it was about a month ago two months ago and we were going to discuss. T you the tiding university. That you're having your nashville from june twenty third did you twenty. And in the interim you went through quite the situation with your eight year. Old son tj. He got a heart transplant. Angular openly posting about it with your wife carol on twitter instagram facebook wherever updating people to bring them along as tj. Got the news that he now is going to get a new heart and go through it and he came out of the surgery. Okay and as we record this he still in the hospital. But i think he's coming home soon so again. I wanted to just thank you for joining us thinking that we were going to be doing one thing which we'll get to but asking an interim in the week of father's day to talk about what you and your family have had to endure here in recent days. Appreciate adam since the last time we spoke a lot's happened As you mentioned our son. Tj we brought them in about four weeks ago he was struggling a little bit For nearly doesn't know he was born with a really serious critical congenital heart defect. He was born with only half of a heart It's called hypoplastic left heart syndrome and he'd literally only has half of a heart Due to some unbelievable technology and medical advances they're able to rewire his heart to to only work that way so he underwent three open heart surgeries before his second birthday a handful of other small surgeries along the way and was really starting to flourish. She was really doing well. Playing baseball was getting into golf finishing up finishing up his second grade. You're in school. And we just. We just thought he looked different. You know he was starting to get lethargic and starting to wear down a little bit easier. Thought there was some late nights and you know just life and we finally took him into get a checkup at the clinic and it was right after they laid eyes on them. They're like we have some serious tests that we need to do and then a few hours. He was admitted into the icu. In pretty severe heart failure and they'd notify us that we'd have to begin the process of exploring Being put on the donor registries so about a week after that so exactly a week. Following his his admission into the ice year we got him listed on the heart rate on the national registry and a reclad a week later exactly We were notified Just on a random day. I was walking with launch. And they said we have come. Meet us in the room. We got something to talk about known immediately. Your first instinct is something's wrong and they said we we got an offer which means they were notified that there was a match and within twenty four hours. He was on the operating room having a heart transplant. So it's been it's been quite the whirlwind He still in the hospital as of today. But things Things have progressed. Pretty well so far. How long were you expecting to take before. There was a match for tj. And what goes into them. Mac determining whether that fits. It's a pretty. It's a pretty fascinating process and one that we. We didn't really know anything about so we do. Transplant was always at some point gonna be. Tj's future Kids with single ventricle. Which was his anatomy Following all those surgeries the oldest. One living tomato. Their late twenties early thirties and then they have heart transplant surgery. Then the idea is to prolong life. The older you get the easier. It is to find matches very hard for little babies. That's why they don't do transplants when they don't have to on newborns because there's fortunately In our country we don't have a lot of newborns. You pass away. thank god So they told us to be prepared anywhere between two and six months You know there's a lot of factors right. So there's like a geographic so there's like a third party that handles called and they're like a sanctioned Kind of like overseeing group that handles procurement of organs organs part liver not just heart and there's so we underwent a million tests. They test his blood type test for antibodies. They test the size of his chest cavity. And there's all these criteria that you have to import into this algorithm based on where you're located and then where they sourced the organ the donor organ from and then they recalibrate the waiting list and you know is one of those things where you're fortunate that you're at the top of the list because he was so critical You know he was on some medicine. That kept his heart pumping that he had to be on twenty four hours a day. He wasn't allowed to be discharged so he was in what you call one. A which is the most critical heart patients and there are prioritized and then the next levels one be so on and so forth so the good news is you. You're in the top of the group in your area. The bad news is you're in the hospital and your critically sick right so it kind of goes hand in hand and Hospital told us averaged about fifty days and we got a call on day. Eight crazy but like to get that call at that moment. You know. it's funny. I i was picking up lunch. I actually had something that had to do in the afternoon. My wife and i and our two sets of parents were kinda doing like shifts to other kids at home and run to baseball practice and my daughter's going to swim over trying to keep life the best we can right so we're finishing up school kid. They're having their moving up ceremony. So life's going on right. So karen i are trying to play that whole dance and So behold i pick up lunch cara and both of our parents are at the hospital hanging out with tj. And i pick up lunch for everybody. And i call them and i'm like hey i'm you know. Meet me in the conference room which is like a room down the hall where we could eat and they're like hey come come by the ring real quick and then we'll go eat and i was kinda like kind of a pain in the ass..

"Another episode of the adam schefter. Podcast on this week's episode. We will be joined by the former standout. Nfl tight end. Who now will be part of. Fox's nfl coverage this fall greg olsen and on june fourth. Greg's eight year old son. Tj received a heart transplant. Tj was born in two thousand twelve with a congenital heart defect that required four surgeries including three open heart procedures and the installation of a pacemaker. Greg has talked about this on social media. He's posted updates but he has not gone as indepth as he has publicly in this particular space this week detailing everything that tj has gone through and what he would hope happens in this week of father's day exceptional to listen to. You'll see why he's going to be an incredible success on fox. He knows just what to say. He knows the pulse of a situation and he got everybody across the nfl. And this country pulling tj and the entire olsen family. Just an incredible story here that we think you'll get to hear today from the former standout tight end greg olsen and as you mentioned he says all the right things they're also examples of men who don't always say the right things and we saw a couple of those examples this past week we saw levian bill come out and say that he would never play for andy reid again. That quote unquote. I'd retire. I now let beyond. Bill came out and apologized for comment. About andy reid but did say he doesn't regret at all what he said. Now if you're living. I'm bill and you insult andy. Reid who by the way has spawned a whole entire coaching tree. That coaches across the nfl. And you're trying to get another job. What is the upside in. Saying that you would never play for andy reid who is very well respected very loved across the league and basically make yourself come across that way to perspective employers. You just eliminated half the teams in the league. That would sign you just a strange decision to come and blast a guy who so rarely is the object of public criticism. Didn't make sense to me kind of weird not gonna lie. The other accommodate got. Some raised eyebrows was the packers president. Mark murphy talking to a gathering at lambofield thursday when he described aaron rodgers as a quote unquote complicated fella. And the exact quote that mark murphy said is. I'm often reminded of ted thompson as most of you know just a great general manager passed away earlier this year. Ted often talked about aaron that he's a and it wasn't just aaron a lot of different players he would say he's complicated fellow. So i'll just say that those words that murphy said via nbc twenty six in green bay now again if you're the green bay packers and you're trying to convince aaron rodgers to come back to green bay. Why would you publicly say anything other than how important he is to your organization and how much you want it back. Yeah okay and rodgers might be a complicated fella. You might be a lot of things but there's no need to say any of this. I wonder all the time. Why some people say the things they do and everybody has the right to say whatever they want but some statements. I always wonder. Where's the upside. Where's the upside for lebanon bill. Where's the upside for mark murphy. What are they trying to accomplish when they say that our jobs are to be on television to talk all the time and always try to be and probably don't always succeed but i always try to be measured in every word that i used in every word that i use and again sometimes it works. Sometimes it doesn't but it always is amazing to me. When i look in and see some people some powerful positions say the things they do and wonder what they're trying to accomplish something worth remembering as the. Nfl is about to head into. Its quietest time of the year. And maybe people will be encountering some microphones and hopefully they won't say anything that raises anymore eyebrows across the leak right before we get into greg olsen and again i want to emphasize how outstanding he is during a conversation of a few things. I want to share first off your of sbp host of espn sportscenter..
Free Agency 2021: Biggest Winners and Losers From Day One
"Who's the biggest winner from day. One the biggest winner from day one already told you it was. It was a my intro. You're listening great question. Jonnu smith out. It's cam newton. Well that depends kenyans a starter for sixteen games. That's right that's true. It's yeah okay. Potentially find jonah smith. Donald smith big contract with the patriots They invest heavily in him. You like this for him i do. I think you know Obviously the quarterback is the concern. But this is the scenario especially with the move that they made that we look for in fantasy as tight end could be the leader of the pack in terms of targets and opportunities and so look cam was not good in twenty twenty. If cam does start sixteen games in two thousand twenty. One greg olsen. During a five year stretch was pretty awesome of the top tier tight ends of the guys that we did. We talk about what he was in the next group you know. And so from twenty two thousand twenty sixteen. Greg olsen averaged a hundred eighteen targets a season seventy seven catches Decide one thousand yards and five times. Johnny could do that. One season estimate put them right around a top five tight end. Greg olsen was great and not only was he great but we also saw from cam newton in that stretch that he could give you greg olsen. Who could finish as a top eight tight in five straight seasons and give you a number to wide receiver in four of those five seasons three or four of those five seasons whether it was. Steve smith or kelvin. Benjamin and even ted ginn one year. So that's interesting. I'll afforded talking about that on the show tomorrow on the tuesday morning show and then of course we'll have a whole bunch of more news items to react to. Hopefully we'll get some kenny golladay news at some point on tuesday or maybe it'll happen later on monday night as record this at about nine fifteen eastern. Who's the biggest loser from day. One the biggest loser from day one on asking these questions before. I told you that we were starting with these egypt's before the show The biggest guys they ryan tannehill johnny smith and Us down smith and corey davis They're going to have to struggle to replace those guys Davis probably more. So the jonah just from the standpoint of what he was last year with his production number two receiver sixty five catches nine hundred plus yards and five touchdowns. So we'll see what they do in in in that in that regard but i think Tannehill you know. I had him as the number eleven quarterback. I dropped in the thirteen after today. Just because i think it was close between in my mind. Joe burrow and tom brady put them behind both those guys. Okay how 'bout jameis winston ryan tannehill right now. It's soom jameis winston as the starter. I still go. i think it'd be messy. You know. I can't situation we're taking those not blaming So i was hoping james would go someplace else and tastes hill. Would still be the guy with maybe a rookie or somebody. Young that they could groom continued. Just gonna to get you know too much of the mill package of james as the starter and if as milton starter. Davis is gonna play very much so it just feels like it be messy situation oil. Who do you like better. Corey davis with the jets nelson agholor with the patriots. I think adler is going to be bad. I don't trust the situation. You know i mean he. He had so many big. Plays for the raiders last year and he was so good for derek carr but he did that on eighty two targets. I don't think he gets eighty two targets with the patriots. He's going to do the same thing. So with what cam does running the ball with what jonah smith brings to the table with. What the rest of the receiving corps will look like if julian edelman on the team if he's healthy Nagla is going to be A guy that's not on many fantasy rosters middle of the season whereas corey davis could be the best receiver for the jets. I don't know if that's going to be the case. But i would take davis by far over niagara.
Predictions vs Reality NFC West, Seattle Seahawks
"I predicted the Seattle Seahawks to go 11:00 and 5 last year. I pretty much nailed it. They went 12 and for the only game I missed was the San Francisco 49ers. I could not predict that the $59 would have a bunch of injuries. I thought that the Seattle Seahawks and the 49ers would split their series each win one game against each other instead Seattle beat the 49ers in both games. So that's literally the one game it's kind of crazy. I was horribly wrong about the Cardinals the Rams the 49ers. I nailed Seattle. My prediction was right there for I'm actually not that interested in Seattle. Like I like I said, I'm actually way more fascinated when I get stuff horribly wrong. I said before the year that Seattle relies too heavily on Russell Wilson, they're starting quarterback 2000sq them from their problems and kind of ended up being true now, they brought in the receiver Phillip Dorsett. They brought in Phillip Dorsett from New England. I was curious to Phillip Dorsett kind of a breakout year and Go from a guy who was infuriating to watch a New England to maybe having a great season playing with Russell Wilson. Unfortunately Phillip Dorsett did not play a single game the poor guy hurt his foot in training camp and by November Phillip told I was getting surgery to remove bone spurs from his foot. I encourage you look up a bone spur does not look like a comfortable thing but credits yet. I Seattle try to get Russell Wilson some Playmakers. I thought we were set to not work out. Josh. Gordon did not work out. They brought in. You know Speedy Josh Gordon. He had a setback in recovery. Seattle had to end up cutting him so long so brought in Greg Olsen. They they got a veteran tight end Greg Olsen and I look I got a lot of respect for Greg Olsen. He's awesome. Last year Greg Olsen. However was underwhelming had 24 catches for 239 yards one touchdown played an only 11 games missed a couple of games with an injury. So in the end Greg Olsen retired, so Phillip Dorsett, Josh Gordon, Greg Olsen, like the move Seattle made to try to support Russell Wilson just didn't work out and that's not bad. It just it didn't it didn't work. Unfortunately right now again, I love Greg Olsen. He's amazing. I cannot wait to hear the guy in the broadcast booth next year. But now the one thing that came out very very well for Seattle on offense was DK Metcalf. G came back up Seattle second-year receiver. Oh my gosh. This guy is a monster. He had 83 catches for 1303 yards 10 touchdowns. I love to see that DK Metcalf is a receiver that is just at the beginning of his eventual domination over the NFL. He already does dominate in some games. So he keeps getting better and better and he keep getting better and better the more we watch him. Now as I look back on Seattle season, one of the things that kind of sticks out to me that's very weird still is I just did not love their 2020 first-round picks Seattle is kind of known for having weird. First round draft picks. They drafted linebacker Jordan Brooks 27th overall. And he was her early on so Jordan books now, I will say I'm not going to trash on Jordan books by the end of the year. He made some plays with doing some good stuff like Jordan Brooks. Very good football player solid right desert looks like a first-round pick the end of the year. But here's what's weird to me is that when the Seattle Seahawks went to a nickel package meaning that you bring in an extra corner or defensive back onto the field to basically stop the past when they win to track a package which is happening more and more in the NFL because teams are throwing more and more than ever before. In a nickel package. Jordan Brooks is on the sidelines not playing maybe part of that is because they were he's a rookie. They're trying to light workload. I don't know but it's kind of weird to draft a first-round pick and then not have the guy on the field. All the time makes me wonder despite Jordan Brooks being a very solid football game. Could they not have got drafted somebody 27th overall last year that could have contributed even more to their team. Just a question. I'm asking cuz I looked at it. I still book how it's bit of an odd pick life. Even though Jordan Brooks can play it's like whack could they not have done something better or maybe more interesting than Jordan Brooks just me asking a question here. You can answer for yourself. I'm just for me. I'm like man, you spend a first-round pick on a guy who's not on the field all the time,

How Will Cam Newton Make the Patriots Better?
"All right bill. We're here today to talk about the New England Patriots and Cam specifically began her. They used to film. The Cincinnati bengals sideline for which they were find over a million dollars mosque third round. Pick well the good news. Is that they've decided to uproot their entire organization and totally chance planet quarterback to bury the latest piece of evidence that there maybe not playing by the rules as everybody else. Bill Barnwell is the host of the podcast. The bill Barnwell show. You just, but there are people on the Internet positing that these events are connected. Of course. We are here today to talk about. The other came Cam Newton the New England. Patriots who could have predicted this? IS GOING TO RELEASE CAM to they're going to wait, and the Patriots are going to get him for nothing and they're going to be good. It's going to be awful in offense. It was impossible up to this point. The idea that the only team in the league that to starting quarterback might possibly make a move for the best available starting quarterback on the free agent market see Telepho-, obvious when you lay it out like that, but here's the thing it's June and according to our Adam Schefter. No other teams exception to the Browns who had some interest put in a call then New England goes out, and they get cam for basically nothing veteran minimum with incentives. How bill how? I think it's a combination of things I mean. Obviously the coronavirus has impacted team's ability to see workouts to administer physicals and Cam Newton of course as a player coming off of a serious injury, eight frank injury to the middle of his foot, which cost him pretty much. The entire two thousand nineteen season for that coming off the shoulder surgery has not been healthy in a while, and so you'd figure in a typical circumstance. He would be easy for teams to kind of see what cam has left, and then make an offer only, but there haven't really been teams able to make the sort of offers that would justify starting quarterback role. And then I think from camps perspective he rightfully would rather be making less money with the opportunity to start for the new, England Patriots say a playoff team from a year ago, then serve as a perhaps higher paid backup in a spot where he's unlikely to play. Knowing how little New England paid for him and looking back at some of the other quarterbacks who got jobs during free agency? Are there any teams that you think would have been wise to jump ahead of new? England and WHY IS IT CHICAGO? I do think that the decision to trade for Nick. Foles a player who realistically has if not Worse Injury History Than Cam Newton certainly a comparable injury history when it comes to his checkered past i. do think that the bears would have been in much better shape. Do Not trae draft pick and to sign Cam Newton for much less money than they're going to give nick foles over the next three years and I think there's a handful of teams that. That even if it happened as a backup, I think teams like the steelers. Of course you've talked about the titans as possible CAM, Newton location and I think absolutely teams like that have a veteran quarterback with a history of injuries and very little behind them in the backup role would have absolutely been smart to making move for Cam Newton, but obviously I think it's the Patriots benefit that the League has been so conservative when it's come to approach again. Let's talk about what we can expect out of canning. Which I realize, you are not a doctor, but the big question mark is you've outlined his health the last time we saw him play. Football was the beginning of the two thousand nineteen season. He only played a couple of games before his season ended due to a foot injury, he incurred during the preseason. What did you see out of Cam the last time he was healthy? The last extended stretch we saw from Cam Newton as a healthy quarterback, was the first half of twenty eighteen, and he was excellent. Newton throws. Fabio Capello Panthers one of the best teams in football at six to newton was tenth and Passer Rating Twelve Qbr and the panthers had guilty scheme that was designed to actually trying to out more quickly and leave some of the hits that candidate taking, and we saw his numbers include accordingly. SNAP TO NEWTON looking left throws it over the Middle Touchdown Greg Olsen. Cam Newton looking like a poster on feats. Assume. Thirty so frequently earlier in his career, they always posted pretty mediocre. Completion percentages in two thousand eighteen across the first half you had a completion percentage of sixty seven point three percent that was one of the best marks in football. He was averaging nearly four touchdowns for every pick producing really two hundred eighty yards per game from scrimmage. He was illegitimate MVP candidate through the first half of twenty eighteen. And then of course, the injuries struck. Labor rotator cuff just to soreness. He had a shoulder injury that led to surgery after two thousand eighteen. And then the foot injury cam stumbles Abu to the nearside. He's in trouble. Hit droplet like. Damn comes off the field limping a little bit maybe. But you tried to play through and was unable to do so.

"Spike Lee in the building. So Greg Olsen was in the building. Todd Gurley was in the building bad. I mean, everybody wants to see Carolina Duke, and it's not because of Zach white. And it's not because of frankly, anybody else on the floor is greatest camp. British RJ. Barrett company are. Now, they wanted to see him and less than forty seconds. He is he is done Doreen oak with your first and last ESPN radio a by the way, make sure tune in tomorrow night. College hoops Kansas battling Texas Tech jayhawks. Now, look like they could be a great position for a th straight conference title, which is wild. I did not look remotely possible. Even a couple of weeks ago. It is presented by Pella. Todd coverage begins seven thirty eastern on ESPN radio and the ESPN app, but what a letdown Wednesday at Duke got throttled with outside on the floor throttled by UNC Goodwin for the heels with or without Zayn. But none of that matter. Right. None of that is the story. Now the story is the Zion could have suffered a significant knee injury. That could happen. I'm going case greatly impacted his NBA future his draft status all of it. And by the way, if you love the NBA, I love the NBA many of you loved the NBA how much would. That stake. If we don't get to see Zion at the next level and soon, right? I mean, what can he that guy those skills that build what is he capable of? I can't wait to find out. So the question is this though are we going to see him again in a Duke uniform because there are people far and wide saying, dude. The injuries day to day. That's a sprain. He got lucky. They got luck. Everybody got lucky you this right? Except for those of you who paid three or four grand to watch the game. You didn't get lucky buyer's remorse. Hello how you doing? Good friday. But there are so many people advising him on what to do or what not to do. Once the knee is ready to go. And there are not many voices in this sport. That I admire more, and that I respect more than the first one we're going to play for you that is my friend and a guy that I trust immensely. And a huge fan of SPN's college basketball analyst, Jay Williams. His here's his take on what Zion ought to do. Zeile? Williamson can do whatever he wants. He is his own man. But I can tell you one thing for a family like their family. You know, you have a chance to make a lot of money. That's a major major decision, and you have to be able to compartmentalize your love for the game as opposed to the long end of the game. Business wise is it is it is in Zion Williams his best interests with what he's been able to accomplish thus far in the season to come back and to try to play off a knee injury. I don't think it is. If I were his adviser if I were an agent, I would advise him not to I think that would be the right business move for him. But once again Zion is his own person. He's going to do what he wants to do. Yeah. That was Jay will get up. Any other thing about J J will state at Duke at least a year longer than he needed to. When he was a player of the year and came back national player of the year and came back. Of course, they'd had the horrific motorcycle accident after being drafted second by the bulls. We never really got to see what that guy was able to do in the NBA. But you know, I think his words richly. But again, it's up to sign.

Greg Olsen out with foot injury
"By. There's an injury note here for for Greg Olson where he is his day is done. He's out with a foot injury. He is oh you t- out. He is not coming back. And he's a guy who had to work back from a foot injury to start his season, Rob Denmark so much time. So I think if you're Carolina you you hate to see that not only from offensive scheme standpoint. But certainly from a personal standpoint. Yeah. Both. I mean, he he. He's kind of a a a mainstay not only in that offense in that organization in that locker room and the injury was a non contact injury. Which scares you the most which scares you the most as it's it was very quick that they made the determination. He was out for the game. So hoping for all the best for for Greg Olsen. But what what they lose in that offense is Cam Newton security blanket. You know, he's a guy that Cam understands that when things break down he can always depend on you can always rely on. He's a guys an easy button for camps. And when you take that away from the offense, it just makes it a
