When you don't have people around you and you just have so much access to excessive amount of everything, who can handle it?"

"It's a lot going on, man. And I see a brother crying out for help," he continued saying. "I look in his eyes.. Again, I've dealt with, you know, episodes and imbalances so much in my life. I could spot it, you know. Oh God, just get him to a place where he can level out and be heard."

We're all hopeful that it's gonna get better and you're gonna wake up one morning and he's gonna be back to do that we knew that was running the routes and you know, you watch this person slowly deteriorate until they to a place where they're harming themselves or someone else."

Later, Nick mentioned that football world itself was like "gladiator mentality" and "barbaric."

When you start knocking heads and hurting each other, and people being carried off to feel, absolutely not."
