After spending a week surrounded by New England Patriots players leading up to Super Bowl LI, Globe reporter Steve Annear felt fired up. He felt inspired, you could say, and slowly, a new dream of leaving the world of journalism for a career on the football field began to blossom.

But before he could make that dream a reality, he had to test his skills. So, he pulled on his skinny jeans, laced up his Vans sneakers, and adjusted his flat-brimmed baseball cap, and then headed to the NFL Experience at the George R. Brown Convention Center in Houston, where he got a glimpse of what it would be like to try out for the team.
