In a Twitter post, he states, “When I felt this thing break [opening week] and I was going into the locker room, I just realized, you know, ‘God this wasn’t exactly what I was thinking when I came to Jacksonville.’ Obviously, you come here and you want to create a culture and impact people but at the end of the day [I said,] ‘God, if this is the journey you want me to go on, I’m going to glorify you in every action, good or bad,’”
He continued, “I still could have joy in an injury. People hear that and say that’s crazy, but … when you believe in Jesus and you go out there and you play … that changes your heart.”
“When I hoisted the Lombardi Trophy – the reason I’m smiling was [because] my faith was in Christ. In that moment I realized I didn’t need that trophy to define who I was because it was already in,” he told reporters.
