I see myself not only as a football player, but an entertainer and icon.
I think dressing nowadays went from trying to fit in to wearing something to try to stick out.
I create a different playlist for each and every [NFL] game. Before the game, to gametime, to warmups, going to the stadium, I have a different playlist that puts me in a different mode.
Growing up in Atlanta, it brings a particular swagger about a person. There are three or four places in the country where people think of fashion: One is LA, obviously. Another is New York. And I think Atlanta has to be in the top five cities where fashion is very big.
Everybody’s entitled to their own opinion.
I am a person that believes in different emotions with music. Music can bring about different vibes on the field, off the field, urban life, going to church, leaving church. Everything the world may bring, there’s a song for it to put you in the right frame of mind.
Control what you can control. Don’t lose sleep worrying about things that you don’t have control over because, at the end of the day, you still won’t have any control over them.
I’m an example of why people deserve second chances.
In college, you had to worry about that math class or this exam that’s coming up on Tuesday, but not in the professionals. You eat, sleep, and do everything related to your craft – and your craft is football. You can be at it from sunup to sundown.
You cannot make progress with excuses.
My parents do a lot of things behind the scenes that go unnoticed.
I’m a living testimony that anything is possible.
