Rutgers DT Darius Hamilton discusses his health, and the new staff

PISCATAWAY, N.J. -- Rutgers defensive tackle Darius Hamilton talks about the health of his knee, his added weight and the new coaching staff.

A bulked-up Darius Hamilton, who now weighs 283 pounds, said his knee is feeling better, he is taking most of the team reps in practice and he will be ready for the season.

In the above video interview, the Rutgers senior defensive tackle also broke down the new coaching staff, discussed what it is like to play against the high-tempo offense and whether the added weight, which is more than 20 pounds at what he played at in 2014, limits his mobility.
