My mother made me truly appreciate women.
So as long as I'm a human being and I'm not perfect, I'm able to say I'm having some growing pains.

What shocked me, and what I wasn't prepared for, was just how brutal and how unethical some people can be in the NFL. I mean, there were some great people, but there were some real snakes, too. I was like, 'Holy cow!' But it made me a better person, and it got me ready for other things.
