Defensive players kind of have that two-faced kind of way of being able to be very aggressive on the football field and going out there and getting there job done. At the same time, from my own incidents and my own personality, I'm much a person that's very likable and lovable.
You learn from your mistakes, or you go backward. I'm the kind of person who wants to move forward.
A lot of players have told me they see me as a protector of my teammates, that, side by side, I'm there when something goes down, and I step up beside them and for them when things get nasty. I play the game hard, and I play it physical.
I definitely want to be known as an educated person as well as being a good football player.
My job is to defeat the guy in front of me, do it until he quits, and then wait for them to send in the next guy.
Football is a violent sport. Somebody's going to get hurt. It's the game. Just hopefully, you're on the good side of it.
A dirty player is somebody who ultimately is trying to hurt somebody. There's a huge difference. There's no gray in that. Like, you have no conscience, no nothing, no guilt. I don't have that mean streak in me. I don't play angry. It's not anger.
I definitely see myself as a leader. One of the ways I've been lucky enough to lead and likely to continue to lead is just my actions and the way that I approach the game and working hard and being a player that steps up in big-time situations when plays need to be made.
I guess I'm a fun-loving teddy bear. I've got two sides to me. Obviously, there's the football side that a lot of people see - the mean, ferocious, coming-after-the-quarterback guy. But off the field, I'm a calm, cool, collected guy.
I think any football is a guy that is able to one, be able to be humble and hungry off the field, but at the same time on the football field understand what they have to get done and be a little bit ferocious.
Outside of my parents, it's my older sister, Ngum. She lives with me in Detroit and helps me with my day-to-day stuff. She's somebody I've always looked up to. When she was leaving high school and going to college, I wanted to follow in her footsteps.
I don't think one moment in somebody's life is going to define them.
I'm a storyline. I'm the chosen one for negative stories and controversial things. If I worried about it all, I would go insane.
I'm attracted to Ferraris and Bentleys, but I don't know if I'll ever have a chance to own one of those.
I've always loved fast vehicles and looking at interesting cars.
