Hikes, fasting, desert sprints: Inside Kelvin Beachum's free agency

Rich Cimini
ESPN Staff Writer

Before training camp starts, Kelvin Beachum will return to his hometown of Mexia, Texas, for his annual revitalization. He will fast for 72 hours at the Cameron Chapel, where his 92-year-old grandfather serves as pastor. He will live on water and prayer as he prepares for his ninth NFL camp.

"It's me getting my mind and my body ready for the type of strain I'm going to put my mind and body through," he said. "It's done me well. I've had my best seasons doing it."

All he needs is an NFL team.

For the first time since he broke into the league as a 2012 seventh-round pick of the Pittsburgh Steelers, Beachum is training as a free agent. Despite 99 starts at the all-important left tackle position, and despite a performance last season that impressed the analytics crowd, his third foray into free agency has lasted a lot longer than he could have envisioned.

Also, not to be that old guy (don't say it), but it's impossible to believe that Beachum already has played eight NFL seasons.

Remember when Beach was "the small one" in his class of linemen and then started before any of the rest? Look at him now.

Sure hope he gets another chance. He's one of my all-time favorite Mustangs
