Get to know more about offensive tackle Jonas Jennings as he answers these two-minute drill questions!

Q: What is the best thing you can cook?
A: Anything on the grill. I also make fried chicken – I'm a pretty good cook. It all depends on what you want. I don't eat beef and pork too much, but I can still prepare it. If someone wants steak, I can grill it, but I don't eat it.

Q: What was the best nickname ever given to you?
A: Juicy J. When I was in college most of my teammates, well actually Jason Ferguson who plays for Miami, he started it my freshman year and then guys like Champ Bailey kept it going and still called me that. That's the only nickname I've ever had.

Q: What was the first thing you bought with an NFL paycheck?
A: I bought my mom a house.

Q: What is your favorite movie of all time?
A: Top Gun.

Q: What was the last DVD you bought for your collection?
A: Vantage Point was the last one I bought. I have all my movies on a server now. I don't even know how many movies I have. I'll have to get back with you on that. It's stored with my music; I probably have 14,000 music files.

Q: Who is the biggest celebrity you ever met?
A: Frank Gore (laughs). I've met a lot of people, but the biggest celebrity I ever met was probably Michael Jordan. My cousin was doing some security for him and he was staying at the Ritz Carlton in Atlanta. We talked to him for a short period of time. I was coming out of school and I didn't want to disturb him, being a little college guy.

Q: What is your favorite TV show?
A: *House *is my show right now.

Q: If you could be a spokesperson for any company, which one would it be?
A: I'd probably be a spokesperson for a charity that focuses on single parent kids. It would have to be something where I could help kids growing up with no father, because I was one of those kids. Basically, I want to help the kids learn how to keep going and the importance of an education. I'd want to consult the young kids on how important it is these days to have an education and what it takes to get to the professional level.

Q: What is something you'd really like to learn how to do?
A: Chess, I don't know how to play. I understand it, but I never really put the time into it.

Q: What is your perfect meal?
A: Fried chicken, collard greens with smoked turkey in it, cabbage, all of this is prepared by mom by the way, goulash, sweet tea, maybe some wheat rolls, and a broccoli and cheese casserole – I have to throw that in.

Q: What is your favorite thing to do with your dogs?
A: Run. I like to run with them and get them tired. Most of my dogs are active so I after I run with them they just chill for the day. I got four of them, their names are: Duke, Sugar, Huarache, and Rock.

Q: If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would you go?
A: I'd probably want to go to Fiji. I want to see if it's artesian like they really say. Fiji is supposed to have artesian water, so I want to go see for myself.

Q: What is your favorite car in your collection?
A: I probably have ten cars, but they are mostly classic cars. I don't have ten 100,000 dollar cars. They are just cars that I always wanted if I ever got wealthy enough to get them. So I have two '96 Impala's, a Range Rover, a '72 Caprice Classic, a '71 Impala, a 1970 Cadillac, a Dodge Magnum, a van and I got a '96 Lincoln, stuff like that. I remember all of them when it's time to pay for the tags.

Q: What is your favorite snack?
A: Man, Nature Valley has got these sweet and salty peanut bars – they can't be too good for you – and then double stuffed Oreo's. It's rough. I wasn't a big fan of the regular Oreo's, but when they made that double stuffed, they knew what they were doing.

Q: What is your favorite website?
A: I'm a Mac guy, I'm always looking for the latest in technology. When I log on my computer, that's my home site.

Q: If you could be on any reality TV show or game show what would it be?
A: None of the talk shows or reality shows, I'm kind of opposed to putting people in your business and all that. I would probably like to play on Jeopardy, but a more up to date one. Maybe something that starts from the 70's on, from when I was born. A modern day jeopardy, I wouldn't mind that.

Q: What is your most cherished possession in your house?
A: Probably my chocolate room. That's where I relax, listen to music and watch film. It's a versatile room. I can watch film and have people over or do my massages and stretching there, all that type of stuff.

Q: Who was your sports hero growing up?
A: Michael Jordan.
