The former college lineman sacked a robbery suspect outside a Minnesota convenience store.
Daiker was getting gas the other night.
He says he saw a teenager who was "obviously up to no good."
The 38-year-old Daiker says when he saw the teen had a gun, he tackled him and then got him in a headlock until police arrived.
Daiker is 6-3 and weighs 270.
He tells the Star Tribune plowing into the suspect felt "pretty good," like getting to the quarterback.
