Redskins defensive lineman Stephen Paea turned 27 today.
That doesn't mean he gets a day off. The Tongan was ready for the second week of Phase 2 team workouts, participating with the defense like always.
Of course, Paea will tell you that working out isn't a chore for him, especially on his birthday.
"Going to work is time to go out, get a break and actually I enjoy going to work," he said back in March. "There's a lot of time …there's no better way to do it but get better in the weight room, but family is the No. 1 thing in my mind. There is no better way but to provide for them."
I'm sure Paea will enjoy celebrating with his four girls tonight and receive quite a few calls from his four siblings, too.
If the scene is anything like this, I'm sure Paea won't mind a bit.
