Favorite NFL team growing up:
Didn't have one. I was a college man.
When you played in the back yard as a kid, who did you pretend to be?:
One little-known thing about you that people ought to know:
I grew up on a farm. We had a lot of goats, chickens and horses, and we were about to get cows, and some wild animal came and wiped our stuff out. Only the horses stayed afloat, so we just kept horses and the dogs.
If you were in the Olympics, you would do:
How will you spend your first million?:
I plan on paying my parents' house off. They're about finished on it, so it's no real big thing. Then I'm going to try to find myself somewhere to live, but nothing too materialistic. I'm not that type of person.
Rather be on "Survivor" or "American Idol"?:
How would you do on "Survivor"?:
I think I'd win.
It's the norm for the veterans to pick on the rookie, so what do you have to say to the vets who might be plotting something?:
If it's going down, let's get it over with. Y'all are going to do what you're going to do, anyway. I just want to play football. I didn't come up here for anything else.
What do you like to read?:
Proudest moment in football:
overtime catch against Auburn.
Most embarrassing in football:
I dropped a pass at Ole Miss that was right in my hands.
Best nickname anyone ever gave you:
One thing you just can't stand:
Somebody who's got to cheat you to beat you.
Message to fans:
I just want everyone to know I've come to do what I can do to make this a better team, whatever that may be. They'll get everything I've got every time I'm on the field.
