Both.

Everything is coming along good, it's been a blessing. Just being out here working with these great receivers, I've learned a lot. We're pushing each other.

Me, Hankerson, Aldarius Johnson, and Travis Benjamin.

On not having played much yet:
It's been pretty tough but like Coach Shannon says, it's a process. You just keep working, take it one day at a time and keep working.

On returning kicks:
I'd like to do that. My role is just to help the team out in any way possible. It doesn't matter to me. I just wanna play. I'm a pretty good special teams guy, I think. We have pretty good coaches showing us a lot. We're out here working, getting better.

My overall game I wanted to get better so we came out here and put in a lot of work during the summer.

I think I'm pretty versatile. I can play slot and outside. You can use me a lot, getting me the ball quick or deep so I think I bring a lot to the team.
