Copper Kupp, the Los Angeles Rams' standout wide receiver, exemplifies the epitome of dedication in the NFL. Despite his modest beginnings as a third-round pick from an under-the-radar college program, Kupp has carved out a reputation as an indispensable asset to the Rams, propelling the team to impressive successes.

Now in his seventh professional season, the 30-year-old Kupp is eyeing a strong comeback in 2024. While advancing age can be a challenge for athletes, Kupp is bucking the trend, appearing in top form during the early stages of Organized Team Activities (OTAs).

Kupp recently shared his opinions about OTAs on the "Games with Names" podcast, hosted by Julian Edelman. “I just wish that more guys showed up ready to go," said Kupp. "I understand this in terms of the the issues between the league and the players and the product needs to be good and there’s obviously the union is always going to argue for less work. The league is going to argue for more games. There’s a middle ground here where we got to come together and figure out what’s the way we put our best product forward.”

“If you don’t want to be ready for OTAs, I’m fine with that but the guys that leave all summer, don’t do anything all summer, and then show up for training camp that summer," Kupp continued. "You get five weeks from OTAs to training camp, take your break and then get ready to work because it’s in your best interest as a player to show up ready to go. To protect yourself, protect your teammates be ready to put your best foot forward.”

“If you don’t show up to training camp ready to go, I have a hard time when guys get hurt or guys do stuff or guys aren’t ready or guys are you know getting talked to by coaches about potentially getting released it’s like I saw you were in the Caribbean for three weeks,” concluded Kupp.

Kupp's commitment to excellence is not just talk; it's evident in his actions. His relentless work ethic has been influential, as seen in the offseason performance of both himself and rookie sensation Puk Nacua. The two have set a high standard for physical readiness, fostering a culture of hard work within the team.

After a couple of seasons marred by injuries, limiting him to 21 games and 1,549 receiving yards, Kupp is determined to prove his resilience. With the 2021 All-Pro title under his belt, he's focused on making 2024 a testament to his ability to defy the limitations of time and continue performing at an elite level.
