James Conner in Players' Tribune: 'I am more than the guy who beat cancer'
Pitt running back James Conner penned a letter Thursday in The Players' Tribune.
Dear NFL GMs:
My name is James Conner. I'm a running back who was born and raised in Erie, Pennsylvania. My sophomore year at Pitt I scored 26 touchdowns and was named ACC Player of the Year. But it's more likely that you know me for one very specific thing.
It's cool. That's totally reasonable.
I mean, at this point I'm pretty much recognized around the world as "that football player who battled Hodgkin's and then came back to play the following year." I went on Ellen and sat for a bunch of TV spots with dramatic lighting and sad piano music. So I understand. I've come to realize that me being a cancer survivor is something I'll never get away from. It's a part of my story, no doubt.
I am more than the guy who beat cancer.
But I'm writing you today to let you know that I am more than the guy who beat cancer. I'm writing to tell you some things that you don't know about me.

Temptation can be a powerful thing.
