We like him ... We’ve liked him a lot. We’ve competed against him through the years. He’s a darn good football player. He has been for a couple different teams in this league. So we’ve always kind of admired him in competition. He was available.
A very conservative approach with all these guys, he has a little hamstring tweak ... It's been bothering him for the last week or so, we don't want to put any of those guys in a situation where they're going to take a backward step. You want them all out there going 100 miles per hour, but we got to understand it is May 21, this is OTA 1 and we have a long way to go.
We've always been very cautious this time of year with our players, making sure they're 100 percent healthy and get them back when they're ready to go ... There's going to be plenty of work once he comes back, a lot of training camp work prior to that first game.More quotes »
