WHAT'S YOUR FAVOURITE PRE-GAME MEAL?

Steak and pasta, some good solid stuff on me.

WHAT'S YOUR FUNNIEST FOOTBALL MEMORY?

It wasn't funny then but I got hit hard against Michigan State on a kick return. I was lit up. I got up and was looking cross-eyed and started to run back to the sidelines. A guy on my right said, 'Are you all right man?' I though I was looking at him and I turned to the left and 'Yeah, I'm OK.' That was the funniest time.

WHAT'S THE BEST PART ABOUT BEING A PRO ATHLETE?

Now that I've been striving for this my entire life, it still feels like a dream.

WHAT'S YOUR FAVOURITE ROAD CITY?

I don't know yet. I'll get back to you after the season.

WHAT WAS YOUR FAVOURITE PLAYER AND TEAM GROWING UP?

My favourite team was the Los Angeles Raiders and my favourite player was Deion Sanders. It was him or Jerry Rice and Ronnie Lott.

ARE YOU TIDY OR MESSY?

I'm in between. I'm not too tidy or messy.

WHAT'S YOUR FAVOURITE MUSIC OR MOVIE TO RELAX TO?

I listen to some Donnell Jones or some other R&B, maybe Carl Thomas. For a movie, I don't like watching relaxing stuff. I like sci-fi, Alien vs. Predator. That's my relaxing movie.

WHO COULD PLAY YOU IN YOUR BIOMOVIE?

Who is the dude from Menace II Society. Yeah, Larenz Tate could play me.

IF YOU COULD PLAY ANOTHER POSITION, WHAT WOULD IT BE?

I could play corner or halfback. It's ain't nothing to cover because I know what those receivers are going to do. It's pretty simple.

IS THERE A REASON YOU CHOSE YOUR NUMBER, OR IF YOU COULD CHOOSE A NUMBER WHAT WOULD IT BE AND WHY?

My favourite number is four but Scotty D(eibert) has that here and he's not going nowhere. Other than that, the number doesn't mean much to me. I'll do what I do wearing 85 or whatever.

WHAT PERSON COULD MAKE YOU ANXIOUS JUST BY BEING IN THE STANDS?

Mom and pops. When they come up, I got to perform. They are the ones who put me on this earth. They are the ones who have gotten me this far. My mom is a flight attendant so she travels a lot. My pops doesn't like to go nowhere but he'll come to a couple of games.

IF YOU COULD GO BACK IN TIME, WHERE WOULD YOU GO AND WHO WOULD YOU WANT TO MEET?

I would like to meet Richard Pryor. I met most of the guys I wanted to. I met Jerry Rice, because I was in Oakland for a minute. I would like to meet my great-grandfather on my father's side. I wish my grandfather was still alive but he died in 1985.

WHAT DO YOU CONSIDER TO BE YOUR GREATEST ACHIEVEMENT?

Getting to be who I am now and getting through the bumps and bruises of life. I'm really seeing why I'm here, in Calgary doing what I love to do.

HAVE YOU EVER HAD WEIRD DREAMS ABOUT YOUR TEAMMATES?

Come on man, heck no. I never had no crazy dreams like that.
