How do I start my next chapter, well, I start by first turning the page and closing out one of the most thrilling chapters of my life. A chapter that started as just a dream from a kid from Boatrock. A dream that became a reality with the blessings of God Almighty ,hard work, the dedication to not give up and a village of prayer warriors surrounding me. I stand tall & proud as I announce,  that this beautiful life changing ride that I have been on in the National Football League has come to an end, I’m officially hanging my cleats up, with no regrets! How can I not be proud, 13 years in the game man, hell, I sometimes can’t believe it, but its real. I will forever be grateful for having the opportunity to do what I love for so many years, we climbed through the mud to get here , we broke barriers , we cried,  we laughed , we broke cycles , we broke records, we fell, but got the fuck back up, we lost some & double down and won the rest, we did what they said couldn’t be done, and I say we because with my family, my supporters, & my Almighty , we built this chapter of the story together. I will forever love this game, and it’s a blessing to know the game loved me, real shit. I appreciate & thank everyone who played a role in my career. Every organization & coach I was blessed to play for, I am forever grateful for the opportunity’s & memories. My teammates , my brothers, I thank you, we had a fucking ball.  It was a honor to take the field with you all, we left our stain out there together. To every coach that played a part in molding me into the athlete that I am, you’ll never be forgotten. Coach Allen, Coach Gibby, Coach Fisher, Zim, Hugh, PG it was a honor to play for some of the best to do it. Primetime thank you for your love & knowledge brother, Jerry Jones thank you for teaching me the business side of this game, Dave my brother you know what it is for life.
