A. I mean, often….. businesses, people, others… they invite NFL athletes out to charity events. Often times, the athletes are so nonchalant and uninterested they miss out of an opportunity to network with businessmen who want to help them discuss life after football. Many athletes miss out on these people who can help them get jobs after a short live career in the NFL is done. Coming to these events never hurts, they only help.
Q: I noticed that you were talking with Teez Tabor at the Taste of the Detroit Lions event a few months ago. How would you describe his maturity level?
A: Teez is a good guy. Very mature. I believe he has his head of straight, humble, he’s just your regular guy.
Q: So I recall you telling me about your involvement with real estate since leaving football, how is that?
A: Oh yeah. I’ve been working with Calvin Johnson Jr., we do renovations and things of that matter. It’s tight for sure. Definitely a career that has given me a outlet since retiring.
