-His “welcome to the league” hit which came from former Chicago Bears LB Brian Urlacher.
-Being excited about playing the Vikings twice this season.
-Juking Darius Slay (did not mention him by name) for long game-opening touchdown run.
–Matthew Stafford and how “blessed” he is as a quarterback.
-The Lions RB room, including D’Andre Swift being “special”
-About being drawn to Detroit because of Darrell Bevell
