A lot of people said I could be a good player. I just wanted the opportunity to show it. I just let it happen
I don't know why people say I'm not supposed to be doing what I'm doing. I'm just trying to do my job. I'm blessed, and I'm glad that I'm blessed
I don't think there's anything out there I can be afraid of
If I need to help my team and play a different position for that game because somebody is hurt or they want to give a day off to somebody, I'll do it
It's not what you did last year. It's what you're going to do this year. That's more important.
