  • Only signs autographs with small pencils.
  • During games played in the rain enters huddle holding an umbrella.
  • On errant Tyrod Taylor passes instinctively screams “fore!”
  • During weekly team Bible reading gatherings he only talks about St. Andrew.
  • After every game feels weird need to sign the score sheet.
  • Rides to games in an Uber golf cart driven by Fluff.
  • Wears a Golden Bear jockstrap.
  • After games he always takes off his helmet before shaking hands with opposing players.
  • Only NFL player to have ever skinny dipped in Augusta’s Rae’s Creek.
  • Shot a 41 at Brighton Golf Course using a croquet mallet.
