I've done a lot to get to where I am today. I was one of those guys determined to get where I wanted to go, and I wasn't going to let anybody stand in my way of that. No situation, no nothing.”

“It gets done when I get the ball.”

“Some coaches think they know everything, but they really don’t. They tell you what they think is best, but it’s really what’s best for them.”

“It's a big thing back in my hometown about me being here. There are a lot of people behind me.”

"I always knew I could play in this league.”

“We’re capable of doing anything. You may see one of us fly one day. You never know.”

“I have a soft side that I like people to see. I’m not mean. That’s just football. That’s just the way you’ve got to go. You can’t go into a game that is that violent and be soft. You can’t be that way.”

“No question about it, this is where I want to be.”

“Just one thing has to change, and that’s me staying healthy.”

“The stuff I went through at Auburn? It didn't matter anymore. I just wanted to play football.”

“If it's third-and-one, then I'm going in, no ifs or buts about.”

“I'm looking to show people I'm a running back."

“I can be in the NFL as long as any other back. I went late in the draft because no one thought I could do it.”

“My life has always been rapid and crazy. It has just gotten a little faster.”

“I'm not being conceited or anything, but we have a great team.”

“It’s a big change for a country boy like me, to be in the limelight in New York City. It was most definitely a tough adjustment.”

“Here I am as a running back, making a pretty good living, actually doing pretty good.”

“I see more now. As far as concepts, I know where teammates are going, linemen are going. I can read defensive fronts. I can read the body language of linebackers. I study film to see who’s a bull rusher and who’s a finesse rusher. I think I’ve learned."

“I'm not really trying to break the bank like some other people. I just want what's fair.”

“I'm getting ready to change a lot of opinions about me.”

“Y’all doubted us last year! How’d that work out for you?”

“I can be mean. Not dirty. But very mean.”

“I want it to be so that when No. 27 is out there, they don’t know what’s going on because I do it all.”

“Sometimes I talk, I say things, and I'm like, 'Maybe this won't happen, but I'm going to make myself believe it.'”

“I fought as a kid. But football is what kept me out of trouble. You could always fight, whether you're in trouble or not”

“I come out to win—it's up to them whether or not they want to use me.”

“I just want to be happy. I want to be happy and be able to finish my career in the right way.”
