The guy that helped children live out their dreams and show them the ropes that you can be more than just an athlete, all though I have to add that I want to be known as one of the greatest receivers of all time. I will be known as a legendary on and off the field.

In 15 words or less, why should an NFL team invest in you?

You’ve met some people in your life that your like man that’s a genuine person and you have to make sure to keep that person in your bubble, because you don’t know what it is at the moment and you can see the special in that person. Plus that person brings the best out of you and all the things around you. I am that person! I’m the person that you have on your team that you don’t have to worry about getting anything done because its either done already or your seeing me getting it done at the moment as you think about it.
