about

New York Times Bestseller

Slow Getting Up is everything you want football memoirs to be but never are: hilarious, dirty, warm, human, honest, weird.” —Dwight Garner, New York Times

“The best football memoir ever.” —Rolling Stone

As an unsigned free agent who rose through the practice squad of the Denver Broncos to the starting lineup, Nate Jackson is the talented embodiment of the everyday athlete in professional football, one of thousands whose names go unmentioned in the daily press. Through his story—from scouting combines to preseason cuts to byzantine film studies to glorious touchdown catches—even knowledgeable football fans will glean a new, starkly humanized understanding of the daily rigors and unceasing violence of quotidian life in the NFL.

Nate Jackson played six seasons in the National Football League as a wide receiver and a tight end. His writing has appeared in the New York Times, the Wall Street Journal, Deadspin, Slate, Sports Illustrated, and BuzzFeed. A native of San Jose, California, he now lives in Los Angeles. This is his first book.
