"It was media night when Deion [Sanders] told me, and it's like," Yes, if we win a Super Bowl, I don't know what else can do it. & # 39; And I believe in that moment that I forgot something, I don't play this game just to win the Super Bowls. It's so much more that comes from me playing the game I love. And I think that when you get a chance to get away for a few weeks now, you're like, "Yes, I still want to be around those other young guys coming in …" "
