As a New Jersey native, Kareem McKenzie fittingly spent his entire NFL career with the New York Jets and New York Giants. He played in over 150 games in 11 seasons and won two Super Bowl rings with the Giants.
McKenzie then made the odd career change from offensive tackle to practicing psychologist. He’s currently working toward his doctorate and earning a Masters of Education in Professional Counseling.
McKenzie says that going to counseling during his career proved quite helpful for him and would like to pay it forward by helping other ex-NFL players by providing similar services once he finishes work on his Ph.D.
