My motivation is to make my family proud and to be the best player that I can be every time I step on the field, and a better player than I was the day before.

If you could have dinner with anyone in the world, living or deceased, who would it be and why?
If I could sit down and have dinner with anyone in the world I would pick one of my grandmother’s because I never got the opportunity to talk to either of them before they passed away.
Forty-years from now, what do you want to be remembered for?
Forty years from now I want to be remembered as a great athlete and a great person. I want to be remembered for using the platform I was given to influence and impact lives, especially the youth.
In 15 words or less, why should an NFL team invest in you?
You won’t find anyone that will outwork me or be more determined than I am.
