"New York Times" Bestseller

?"Slow Getting Up" is everything you want football memoirs to be but never are: hilarious, dirty, warm, human, honest, weird.? ?Dwight Garner, "New York Times"

?The best football memoir ever.? ?"Rolling Stone"

As an unsigned free agent who rose through the practice squad of the Denver Broncos to the starting lineup, Nate Jackson is the talented embodiment of the everyday athlete in professional football, one of thousands whose names go unmentioned in the daily press. Through his story?from scouting combines to preseason cuts to byzantine film studies to glorious touchdown catches?even knowledgeable football fans will glean a new, starkly humanized understanding of the daily rigors and unceasing violence of quotidian life in the NFL.
