Jed Weaver

? For me to be successful in the NFL, I couldn’t make mistakes. They always say, “Create an opportunity.” I studied all the receiver positions, all the running back positions. So if anyone got hurt, I could jump in and create a chance. Same with real estate. I’m very detail-oriented and focused on finding the perfect spot for my client based on their needs.

? Looking back, it goes so fast. I wish I would have played longer. I loved every minute of it.

? I traveled around, playing for different teams, and I saw the different opportunities that real estate provided for guys to create wealth. I also saw the poor business decisions made by athletes who were taken advantage of. Part of what I wanted to do is help protect athletes. Real estate, for anyone, is one of the biggest investments you’ll make. It’s important to make the right one.

? The thing that separates the New England Patriots is the standard of quality. You have to perform to that standard. If you don’t, they’ll find someone who can. Also, no one is exempt. If Tom Brady is fumbling the snap in practice, [head coach Bill] Belichick will dog-cuss him in a team meeting. If you’re a rookie sitting there, and Tom Brady is getting dog-cussed, you’re going to step up your game.

? People think you have to play 20 years in the NFL and head-butt everyone to have brain damage. But when you’re 6 and running around like a bobblehead with no muscles in your neck or shoulders, you shouldn’t be [playing organized tackle football].

? Knowing everything I know now [about the dangers of playing football], I’d probably play baseball.
