Talk about dedication to his job!

Nick Mangold was given the opportunity to miss some time at training camp this summer to watch his sister Holley compete as a weightlfter in the Olympics. His decision? To stay in training camp.

“God bless Rex because he did offer it to me, but I don’t think I can leave my  guys in the middle of training camp,” Mangold told the NFL Network. “But we’ll  figure out a way to watch and I’m real excited and real proud for her. Somehow,  some way I’ll watch it, but I don’t know if I can do the jump over the pond in  the middle of training camp.” (courtesy of the NY Post)

I have to hand it to him for the dedication.  I am sure most players would love time off, and taken it without having to be asked twice.  Not Nick, though.
