Juicing on the Blood of Jesus

"I think the one thing I’ll always remember from the field last year happened in Detroit, early in the season. One of the linebackers came up to me—I don’t want to say who it was—and he said, 'Adrian, what are you taking? What juice you using? I gotta get me some of that.' I said, 'I’m juicing on the blood of Jesus. Faith is what got me to this point.' So the Lions came to Minnesota later in the season. That same linebacker came to me and said: 'I appreciate you saying that. You opened my eyes.' That was pretty cool."
