“I was eating bad,’’ Sanders told Mike Klis of Denver’s 9NEWS while hosting his youth football camp. “If I was hungry I would sometimes go through the McDonald’s line and grab me a 20-piece [Chicken McNuggets]. I would go through Burger King, just fast food because I was ready to eat now.
“But now I’m listening to my body a lot more. There’s something about being able to understand your body. What you can put in your body that gives you a burst of energy, or what you put in your body that makes you go to sleep. That’s what I’m understanding more.’’
Sanders enters his eighth season energized, feeling like a rookie all over again — at least physically, the story said. He was quoted as saying he' has a better sense of direction, and is looking for between 1,200-1,300 yards this year.
