"I'm just going to set aside some fine money because I know I'll probably get fined a couple of times," Jackson said. "It's hard for a person to change who they are when they're running the football. I like to consider myself a physical back."

Jackson isn't going to go out of his way to get 15-yard penalties and fines, but he is prepared to deal with the consequences. He doesn't want to second-guess himself on the field. He tweeted about it and gave this interview.
