In your attempt to drop some weight, did you have to give up anything that you love?

Aw, man, my Reese's Pieces. I love ‘em. I have a sweet tooth. I'm not going to lie — it's hard when I have sweets in my house. I don't buy them, but when other people buy them for me, I'm not going to let it go to waste.

You seem so natural in interviews. Do you get a kick out of something like Media Days?

I enjoy it. I love everything that comes along with football, and this is one aspect of it that I can do day in and day out. Definitely when you get to that five-, six-hour mark, you're kind of tired. But that first three or four hours, I'm ready to go. (Laughs.)
