Do you feel that you are ready immediately to contribute?

"I still have a lot of learning to do.  I definitely can say, I can go out there and play, but this is definitely a learning step for me.  This is a different level, it's not quite college, but eventually I will be ready.  With the help of Jacques and the whole d-line and some of the guys on defense, and Coach Johnson and everybody just contributing to my success, I think I'll definitely be ready soon."

How nice is it that Jacques Cesaire is so willing and welcoming to bring you in?

"Him and the whole d-line, everyone has pretty much welcomed me in.  Jacques is taking more time out and little more effort to help me out and understand how to play this game for a very long time, as long as he did.  So, I definitely want to tip my hat to him and say thank you, and also thank you to the whole d-line, and everyone who's helping me."

Did you have a true moment of stepping on the field and realizing you're amongst some guys you've watch on TV on Sundays?

"Yes, I definitely have, realized, I'm looking like, dang, I was just watching this guy on TV.  It's definitely, kind of like a star struck thing to me, just seeing these guys, because these guys are idolized.  Eventually I wanted to get on their level, and now I'm here.  I'm on the next level and it's time to go!"
