Jim Leonhard talks about upcoming NFL season

NFL training camps are just a few weeks from starting up, but former Flambeau star and NFL safety Jim Leonhard is still waiting to find out where he will be going to camp this season.

Leonhard was back at Flambeau High School Sunday for his annual football camp.

The former Badger great looks like he is fully recovered from a torn patellar tendon that ended his season last year in December. It was the second year in a row that that a leg injury ended Leonhard's season as he broke his leg to end his 2010 season.

The hard hitting safety says he is healthy, and is ready to get back on a NFL field this upcoming season .

"I'm a free agent right now, hopefully in the next few weeks I get some workouts and get a contract. The knee is feeling great and I am ready to go. I am getting antsy, football is right around the corner and I don't have a team, kind of getting antsy ready to get back on that field. You just keep working, you keep grinding and good things are going to happen. I know I am going to be playing football somewhere this season, I just have to figure out where. I am excited for that day"

    A lot of people have been following this young mans career in this area. I don't personally know him but feel like he has made us all proud of the person he has become. It seems money can corrupt and they forget where they came from. Thanks JIMMY
