2. Which teammates have you been hanging out with the most?

“For the most part, just the defensive linemen. I’ve been hanging out a lot with the defensive linemen, trying to get used to just being in Houston. They’re teaching me the ropes of the town.”

5. What’s your favorite TV show?

“’King of Queens.’ I like Kevin James; he’s a funny guy. Arthur Spooner is a pretty hilarious character as well.”

6. A perfect day for me is…

“My perfect day is gameday. Get up in the morning, get your mind right and then go out there and perform for your fans and for the team and win. You gotta win.”

7. What was your first car?

“I had a 1997 Ford Explorer. Red. I loved it. It’s still back at my house in Pewaukee.”
