"When we played in San Francisco as the L.A. Raiders for the first time, I had to do something special, so I made this shield out of my couch cushions. Since then, there've been times when I got a little out of control, so I've decided to take this year off to devote myself to God and return stronger next season. I should say this, to anybody who was at the Seattle game: I'm sorry."
