Vernon born in Washington, DC
A New Beginning
I don't know what's going to happen, but I know it's going to be damn good.
Everything is working the way it should...I’m just having a great time.
There aren’t many times in life where you get this opportunity, an opportunity to play along with your brother. It's a special thing; two brothers who achieved their goals.
A lot of people tell me to slow down and rest. But I feel like there’s no time to rest. Tomorrow’s never promised.
Success on the field…
Football was my ticket out of the inner city, but now it gives me a platform to give kids facing similar challenges that same ticket out by way of art.
It’s as big a part of who I am as football. Maybe bigger.
Get a suit get it tapered up
I like to take risks. I’m an entrepreneur. Anytime there’s something new, I like to be involved.
Fatherhood is a huge responsibility. My life is about making sure my son and daughter can survive and thrive when I’m gone.
My grandmother taught me the core values of life – hard work, respect and love. And I learned to never give up.
The love she showed us made the difference. She was and still is the backbone of our whole family.
I always look to get better. My personal goal is to be the best tight end ever to play this game. It’s not for the money. I play for the love of the game.
