OWINGS MILLS — Baltimore Ravens running back Willis McGahee made some mildly controversial remarks in an interview Monday with Sporting News Radio. Here’s a transcript of his comments:

On why he hasn’t been healthy this year: "I tried to do something different this year. They wanted me to come in lighter and I tried to come in lighter, so I relaxed on the weights because the more weights I lift the heavier I get… so I relaxed on that and just tried to work on conditioning, but it didn’t work out so well this year. So I’m just going go ahead and do what I’ve been doing for the past couple of years and just work out and be Willis McGahee."

On his diminished production: "Yeah, I tried to be someone else’s running back this year and it didn’t work out." 

On if he felt like he needed to change his game: "Naw, I didn’t want to change it, but when you have a new coach and they’ve got a perception of you, you’ve got to try and change to stay on the good side of them."

On his thoughts on the future, offseason: "I don’t know what this offseason is going to bring. It’s been a crazy year for me with the talks of me not being there next year but regardless, I’m just going to go out there and play for me… I can’t play for nobody else but me."
