During training camp [in 1999] I was in my hotel, and I got a call. It was [ Packers director of pro personnel] Reggie McKenzie. He was talking to me, and I thought I was going to get cut. Then he said, "Can you give the phone to your roommate?" After that I knew I was in. My roommate was the last cut.

What was your most embarrassing moment?
When I tried to do the Lambeau Leap [into the crowd] after catching a touchdown in 2000 and I slipped into the wall. I got up and tried the Leap again. I got in the second time.

If I weren't playing football I'd be ...

If I were commissioner for a day, I'd ...
