I call my mom when I first get up each morning. She's usually up when we get up at 6:45 -- it's 8:45 at home. I'll call my dad in the afternoon and usually call my mom again too. But it's not as many phone calls today as it usually will be. I just like to talk to them, find out how everything is going at home and fill them in on what's happening at camp. The little back and forth stuff. Always good to hear their voices.

Here's a video of me talking about life as a rookie. Some guys get it tougher than others. Fortunately the RBs don't have it as bad as I hear some of the guys on D do.

As most of you know by now I chose #20 as my jersey number. I like the number and thought that it fit me well. I always wore #4 in little league, although the first year I ever played I was #71. That was not the right # for me so I became #4. My first year in junior high I was #8. I tried to get #4 in the 10th grade but someone already had it so I became #5 and stayed with it in college. Now I'm #20, which means they'll be getting four quarters of #5 on Sundays! Michael Irvin told me you make your own history and that's what I plan to do.
