Rise of the Rams

With OTAs underway and training camp coming into focus over the next couple months, the 2018 NFL season is nearly upon us. I expect it to be an exciting one, especially for the team I spent most of my NFL career with, the Rams. Expectations are as high as they've been for the franchise in [...]

Bellwether of Change

As another NFL Draft approaches this weekend, I think everyone knows by now that I'm really going to be paying attention one thing above all else: what happens with the running backs. I’m very interested to see where Saquon Barkley and other top running backs are chosen, and how that trickles down to the rest [...]

To The Top and Back

I recently returned from an amazing and life-changing trip to Africa, and I'm excited to share the details of what made it so special. I've been known to travel the world, but never before had I taken a trip with so much purpose. When my longtime St. Louis teammate Chris Long approached me to be [...]

The Playoff Experience

Last weekend, I had the incredible opportunity to take my sons Skyler and Kingston to the Rams/Falcons playoff game at the Coliseum. It was a great father-son day, to say the least. Believe it or not, I’ve never sat down and watched an NFL football game with them live, so that in itself was a [...]

Wild Card Weekend

It's that time of year again, the best time of year for football fans: The NFL playoffs are here! Wild Card weekend always has the potential for some surprises, and I'm really excited about the AFC side of things with three newcomers in play. That probably bodes well for viewership, which has been down across [...]

My New Role

I’ve been retired a year-and-a half now and I can tell you that the first year wasn’t easy. Fortunately, I had prepared for my career to end, mentally and financially. But my body was so used to the routine that in June and July, training camp months, I would just wake early and look at [...]

Blast From the Past

A good running back in the NFL is a rare breed. The Los Angeles Rams have a heck of a tailback in Todd Gurley III, the 10th overall pick in the 2015 draft. In fact, in just 13 games this year, he has 1,637 yards from scrimmage. A true threat out of the backfield for the surging Rams. [...]

A Time To Speak

This past weekend, I took it upon myself to travel to Washington D.C. to visit the National Museum of African American History and Culture, as they celebrated their first anniversary. I picked this weekend's voyage because I needed to see first hand what my ancestors endured so I could speak to the root of the issue [...]
