I'm grateful that the team allowed me back. I'm looking forward to making it up to them.

I've been doing a lot of learning from mistakes, first and foremost, and building off that.

Football is what keeps me going, what makes me prosper, and what will keep me straight.

I'm using all my resources to help me with that and I feel the sky is the limit for me.

The whole time my mindset was always to try and get better in spite of what was going on, and in spite of what you guys were writing about me. I was just trying to get better because I had no one to answer to but myself.

A lot of hard work putting things behind me, moving forward and realizing I have a bright future and owe a lot of people a lot.

I just didn't know what to expect. . . . There's no substitute for experience. Now I realize I need to work a lot harder off the field. It's not about just getting out there and running, it's about studying and knowing your opponent and knowing the job you've got to do.

They stayed by my side the whole time-my teammates, family and all the fans.

It's just good to be back in the locker room.
