"A great coach told me that in order to make the man his best, he has to put his world in order. At this point I have to take time for this game and fix my world. I have to give this time back to myself, my family and my health. I'm happy about the support I get and will not get. I'm just asking you to respect my decision not to play football this season. I know that the rumors about trade talks have arisen, but I started my career in Jacksonville. The day I decide to stop, it will be here in Duval. I love you and even in my free time it is the number 10 and you feel me !!! Love. "
