"Me and the [Ravens defensive backs], we took a trip to Vegas, as we do. We try to take trips. We take a trip in the offseason just to fly in and talk about the season and how it happened and what we want to accomplish coming up. And I'm sitting at a blackjack table watching my guys play cards, watching my financial advisers play cards. ... And Ronnie Lott walks up with all his DBs, man. And Eric Wright, who I just was watching the highlight of, walks up to me, man. I'm like, 'This is Eric Wright and Ronnie Lott,' and they're more excited to see me, and I'm like, 'Man, y'all don't know. Y'all my squad.' ... They're the reason I wanted to play football. For me to meet them, and with no other DBs around. I'm looking for Jimmy [Smith]. I'm looking for Bernard [Pollard]. I'm looking for [Lardarius] Webb. None of these guys are nowhere to be found. And Eric Wright pulled me to the side and said something to me, and I was like, 'Man, whooo, if I play, if I play this year, it's on and popping."
