My style is really inspired by whatever I'm listening to or reading or watching; I'm always trying to embody the things that are inspiring me, just for fun.

There's rule changes every year. I do wish, however, that the NFL did have a voice from the players' side, whether it's our players' union president, or team captains, or our executive committee on the players' side. Because we're the guys that realize the risk; we're the guys on the field.
