What was your welcome-to-the-NFL moment?
My first catch in my first game as a rookie [in 1997]. Against Oakland. I knew I belonged.
Your most embarrassing moment?
In Green Bay I ran onto the field right before a punt with no helmet on. I didn't realize it because it was so cold and I had so much stuff on my head to keep me warm.
Your favorite off-day activity?
Going to Best Buy. I love electronics.
What's one thing about being an NFL player that people don't think about?
That it's year-round. People think it's a glamorous four-months-a-year job where you only work on Sundays. But it's a year-round job to prepare for the season.
If I were commissioner for a day, I'd ...
sit up in my office and relax. I wouldn't change one rule.
