This kid has gone tru a whole lot of adversity in his life, its nice to see his hard work starting to pay off as he seems to get his first career start vs the Broncos Sunday..
There are, in the NFL, so many stories of survival and perseverance. Mistral Raymond knows that firsthand all too well. Most of his half-brothers found their way to jail; so did many of his friends. His father was rarely around. His house burned down. His mother died. His half-sister would be found dead in a case that still has not been resolved.
