Bobby Convey admits he has altered his individual game in order to provide more for his team.
“As you get older and play for a while, you become way less selfish,” Convey said.
“When I was younger, I was a little bit more selfish: You want your own career to take off. But at this point, after playing for so long, being on a good team – I know the players will be rotated here, there are good players – I just want to win.
“That’s why I came here: To be close to my family, on a winning team and close to my family. That’s what you want throughout your career, and that’s where I am.”
Of his move to join former DC teammate Mike Petke in New Jersey, Convey added: “I was just really young (back in 2004).
“It was tough for me being so young, but now it’s good for me full-circle that Mike’s the coach here and he knows me and he knows how I’ve changed.
“I’m married now. I’m going to have a baby. It’s a completely different person than when I was making mistakes as a teenager. I’m glad Mike knows me then, knows me now. It probably wouldn’t have come off.”
