Taking Care of the Future

In my last blog entry, I wrote a little about one of my goals for this year, and that’s my goal of becoming a better me.That process has continued through the last few months, and it’s been awesome. It's kind of funny how, when you decide to make changes, you make progress and then you [...]

I've been to so many wonderful places, and seen over 40 countries in [...]

Why Running Backs Need Saving

Last month, we launched the Save the Running Back campaign and SaveTheRunningBack.org, and I have to thank those who gave it such a positive reception, and really supported this endeavor of mine.

Exploring Central America

At the end of every NFL season, I like to take some time to relax and recover, and embrace one of my other passions: travel.I ended up going to Central America this month because I’ve been giving thought to signing up for Spanish lessons. I’m ashamed to say it, but I’ve forgotten all the high [...]
