"It's been hard, man," Addae said. "But I kept my faith in the man upstairs. Everything happens for a reason. It's exciting to see how well we jelled as a defense. "It was a blessing in disguise because I got to sit back and see the defense from a different perspective, as bad as I wanted to be out there."
