At the start of the new year, we do this – and then anytime I’m going through a little bit of a struggle or anything like that, we reach out – just get her do to a reading,” Hendriks said. “She’s actually sending me some bracelets and some crystals and stuff like that now to kind of figure out my locker a little bit. I saged my locker. I also saged a couple of the other guys on the team who were a little bit more open to it.”MORE NEWS: At Least 31 People Wounded In Weekend Gun Violence In Chicago, 5 Killed
