Catching up with the Law Firm

6/30/2011

On ESPN.com's "Page 2", Bill Speros catches up with Patriots running back BenJarvus Green-Ellis, detailing his interesting offseason.

"It's been a surreal offseason," Green-Ellis tells Speros. "Everything has been a very humbling experience with the lockout. But when I go to the boxing gym and see those guys work out, I want to work harder."

Green-Ellis recalls the first time he heard the nickname "Law Firm" -- it was on ESPN -- and joked that if he's the Law Firm that makes Patriots coach Bill Belichick the Supreme Court, and Robert Kraft the owner of the entire court.

Green-Ellis has been working out at ESPN's Wide World of Sports in Orlando, along with fellow NFL players James Farrior, Ike Taylor and Travis Johnson.

"You don't let anyone else outwork you," he tells Speros, before adding what's missing: "We're not able to build team chemistry right now. We're not getting the one-on-one coaching or get to study film."
