"For Coach Brown to take a chance on me and have the opportunity to change the game not just for me but a lot of younger African American quarterbacks coming up in the game, just to hear [Texans quarterback] Deshaun Watson and those quarterbacks mention my name, the whole goal was to open up doors for everyone."
