Thank you to the entire Detroit Lions organization (the Ford family, coaches, medical/training staff, equipment guys, support and operations, maintenance guys, community relations, player development, communications, media, security, everybody) for the support and opportunities given to me. To the city of the Detroit, the incredibly loyal fans, and all the people I've built relationships with, thank you as well. I will always have a special place in my heart for the city and will forever appreciate you all. Most importantly, thank you to my incredible teammates, my brothers. It was a pleasure competing and growing with you all. I love you boys! Didn't expect to be traded, but that's just business. Looking forward to the next phase of this wild journey in New England. God bless! #OnePride #LionBlood #BadaBOOM
