Why Jets Tackle Kelvin Beachum, Jr. Is So Bullish on Drones

November 14, 2017

New York Jets Offensive Tackle Kelvin Beachum Jr. joins Cheddar to discuss his interests on and off the field. As an investor in sectors including robots, technology, and E-sports, Beachum says he is most excited about drones right now. The professional football player says he has already made two investments in the space, and now has his eye on DJI Drones.

Beachum praised Detroit Pistons Coach Stan Van Gundy on twitter Tuesday, about his op-ed in Time about the continuing NFL anthem protests.

Beachum tweeted, "There's a difference between nationalism and patriotism." Beachum says these protests are not about the military, but about social injustice and a hope for equality.

Similarly, Colin Kaepernick who was recently named GQ's 2017 Citizen of the Year, Beachum says this is a step in the right direction, but the quarterback remains unemployed by the NFL.

As more professional athletes are looking at their future beyond the sports field, Beachum says be began thinking about his future after football back in college.

The athlete noted that his mentors have helped him transform his mind, and how he looks at investing in technology.
