Damion Square Describes Unique Path to Super Bowl on The Gary Harris Show
With just a few short days to go before the Cincinnati Bengals take on the Los Angeles Rams in Super Bowl LVI, Bengals defensive tackle and former Crimson Tide star, Damion Square, joined The Gary Harris Show to talk about his path to the big game.
Square became the first player in NFL history to play for two different teams in the same postseason, entering the playoffs as a member of the Las Vegas Raiders and now ending them as a member of the Cincinnati Bengals.
"Yeah, that was crazy," Square said, "I ended up having a decent game against the Bengals and we just came up a few plays short in making that happen, but I definitely impacted that game in a major way."
Square continued, describing how the Bengals reached out to him after the wildcard round matchup, saying, "The Bengals gave my agent a call and let him know they were interested in signing me, but I actually thought they were talking about next football season. For whatever reason, it wasn't clicking that they wanted me to potentially play in the AFC Championship."
"They ended up beating the Titans and gave me a call on that Monday. I was there Monday night, took a physical that Tuesday and was on the practice field Wednesday," Square said.
Previewing the Super Bowl matchup, Square said, "These guys can run the ball well. You can't underestimate their offensive line. They're a complete football team."
"I think it's about making plays when they show up and not trying to necessarily take the game. If they get in the redzone, try to give up three as much as possible, and at some point in the game, create turnovers. Whoever creates turnovers and whoever's offense protects the ball best has a great potential to win the game," said Square.
In just one season, Square spent time with five different teams, but found his way to the Super Bowl nonetheless. Facing off against a high powered offense like the Rams, Cincinnati will be in for a very tough fight.
