Nate Burleson has always been the kind of guy who can command a room with his personality. It jumped off the field when he played, he drew the attention of the media in the locker room and now he has taken those same talents to television in his new role as morning co-host of “Good Morning Football” on NFL Network.

So far, Burleson has been excelling at his new job and has fully accepted his role as a media personality. As part of his job, Burleson has been reaching out to fans via social media. On Tuesday, he took things to a new level by answering individual Twitter questions in video format.

Naturally, Burleson faced a lot of interesting questions regarding the Detroit Lions, who he played for from 2010 to 2013. He touched on his favorite moments in Detroit, his admiration for Calvin Johnson and why he actually liked that the Lions sucked before he came to Detroit. Check out a selection of his answers below:

There are plenty of other questions Burleson answered during his Q&A session, including his favorite album of 2016 and which NFL player hits the hardest. For that and more, head over to Burleson’s Twitter timeline.
