What was your welcome-to-the-NFL moment?
My first preseason game, with the Rams in 1998. We played the Broncos at home, and the crowd was into it. I was on the kickoff coverage team, and when I sprinted downfield, there was a huge adrenaline rush. I couldn't believe the speed of the game. I ran into the wedge and knocked down [the ballcarrier]. I found out later I'd been on the JumboTron.
What is your favorite off-day activity?
Basketball. I play pickup games at rec centers. Guys raise their intensity if they know what I do for a living ... but I went to college on a basketball scholarship. I can hold my own.
Most treasured possession?
