I got to start on Sunday and it was everything I've ever asked for growing up. Guys in this locker room looking to me to make plays on the field being the starting tight end. That's exactly what I wanted to do. I made some mistakes out there but I'm learning and I'm ready to get after it this week.
Beginning in Week 1, I was on the field as a third tight end at times and also on special teams. The way it's worked out, I got to see what it was like, get a couple of plays here and there when
It'll be nice playing at home one last time. Other than the atmosphere, it's just being comfortable, knowing the schedule, knowing what hotel you're gonna be in. Everyone at home knows where I'm gonna be. So that's good. I like just being comfortable, that's really what it is.
I've started my Christmas shopping. I'm In the middle right now. It's the last place I want to go right but I'm headed to the Galleria. Hopefully I'm in and out but I'm almost done. My girlfriend works over in that area, so I'm over there quite a bit. I want to stay away from there this time of year, that's for sure.
I don't have too many people to shop for: maybe just my parents, my sister, my little nephew. Under ten people. Not too bad. As for me, I'm happy as a clam right now. I need a win, that's what I need.
Off the field on Thursday nights occasionally, we'll go out just as a tight end group. It's been fun. Obviously, O.D. has the connects here so he gets some pretty good meals here on Thursdays.
He interacts with everybody in the community. He's really looked upon as a leader. If I'm around half as long as he is, I would hope that people would do the same for me, and I'm looking to give back just like O.D. does.
He keeps his clothing and shoe hookups a secret, though. He comes in here looking amazing every day. Look at me, I'm a bum right now. So I got to get on his stylist. He's gonna hook me up some Jordans.
