DP: But you look at guys who are around 30. That appears to be a magic number for running backs. It seems they have a certain number of carries in their legs, and that's it.
RW: I don't think it's a physical thing. When you're young, you think your body will hold up forever. As you start to get older, you think, Ouch, this hurts. Do I really want to spend this much time thinking about my body being in pain? I don't think it's a physical thing as much as a mental thing.
DP: Are you still excited about football?
RW: It's exciting now. We've won two games in a row, and we're doing a great job on offense. It's still a job, don't get me wrong. One thing I've learned in my old age is the more that you approach it as a job, it puts you in a position to have fun. If you don't put in [the work], you're not going to have success, and it's not going to be fun.
DP: What do you study now?
RW: I study a lot of healing modalities.
DP: Massage therapy?
RW: Massage therapy is one of them.
DP: What if [Dolphins coach] Tony Sparano asked you for a massage?
RW: [Laughs.] He wouldn't do it, so I don't have to answer that question. Not even my teammates would ask. In this profession, guys don't let other guys touch them that way. But if his wife asked me to give her a massage, then I would enjoy the opportunity to show him that I have other abilities.
