It's cool because football, as much as it gives, it takes away a lot, too.

Some suggestions for you :

I know where my body's at, know how it feels, you know.

It's a part of football, you get concussed, you gotta keep on playing. You can't get afraid to go across the middle any more than you were at the beginning.

I'm an honest guy.

Sometimes, it's just unfortunate you get injured in the game. But you can definitely take strides to prevent those things.

It's simple to get a concussion, you know. I don't know how many I've had over my career, you know, but I've definitely had my fair share.

I had great stats in my career, you know, but really, you want to win.

It's not a public matter when you discipline your family.

I would like to go down as the greatest receiver in this game. I'm not doing all this hard work for nothing.

That's what everybody calls me, 'Cheat Code,' because they just throw the ball up to me.

Bless my mom. Mom is everything to me.

I'm just a worker.

Be real with yourself in whatever area of your life and your game that you need improvement on. Once you figure that out, you just have to go out and work on it. For me, it's footwork. I constantly work on it, and it's a never-ending process.

I think any time you bring those guys in, one with a lot of playoff experience, with rings - those guys won - guys in the locker room gravitate towards those guys. Those guys have been there, so there's a lot that they can teach the guys.

For me, to just have my own shoe is unbelievable. As a kid, you see Jordans and wonder what that feels like to have your own shoe, and the fact that I have one is really surreal.
