NFL free agent pleads for another chance by standing outside stadium with cardboard sign

A 26-year-old former NFL wide receiver is taking an unconventional approach in his campaign to be signed by the Houston Texans.

Joe Anderson is standing outside the team's stadium with a cardboard sign.

"Not homeless but starving for success. Will run routes [for] food. #WhateverItTakes #UnderDog #IBelieve #Hungry," he wrote on the sign posted to Instagram.

Anderson previously played for the Chicago Bears and Philadelphia Eagles.

According to Newsweek, he only played in nine games for the Bears and didn't seen any playing time with the Eagles due to an injury.

He is currently a free agent and could have a chance with the Texans.

His Instagram post states that he intends to stand outside of the stadium every day until he gets a shot at playing with the team.

In addition he wrote, "Forget a publicity stunt Boyz [sic] is Really HUNGRY out hur dawg to the point if the coach wanna line up I'll route him up too, to the point if it's special teams an the REF get in the way I'll hit him too!!"

His others Instagram posts seem to indicate that Anderson trains regularly. And he has fans on his side, with this post garnering more than 1,000 comments, with many tagging the Texans to gain their attention.
