Exclusive Phone Interview With Taco Charlton of The Dallas Cowboys

He got the nickname, "Taco," as a young kid. And because all his friends thought that meant he loved tacos, he resisted, as kids do, and decided he wouldn't like tacos.

His attitude changed in college.

"Now, I love tacos all the time," Michigan senior defensive end Taco Charlton said Sunday. "Whether it's Taco Bell or I go make my own tacos or whatever."

He was born Vidauntae Charlton, but eventually, his mother and grandmother thought, for some still-vague reason, that "Taco" was a good fit.

It's stuck.

And he's embraced it, especially on Twitter, with his handle being @TheSupremeTaco
