"I wanted to see how they practiced and what the culture was like. Going in there, it was very similar to how my team practices. It was up-tempo and people were definitely working very, very hard, but at the same time they were all having a lot of fun. That was definitely a good thing for me to see. The facilities were top-notch."

"(Safeties) coach (Tim) Banks is recruiting me and I call him once a week. I enjoy talking to him and think we're building a great relationship. I'd like to visit soon, but I'm not sure when yet."
