On whether has experience playing the Cover 2 in college:
"It is funny because we played a lot of zone in college, and they play a lot of zone here. So I am pretty sure they probably looked into that already, and it helps us out a lot because I played a lot of zone at UNH. We played some man, but we didn't play a lot. So I'm used to zone coverage, and it will be a good fit for me."
On how the rehabilitation of his ankle injury is going:
"My leg feels good right now. I have been running on it for the last month now. I can kind of do everything, but it's been a lot better the last couple weeks. So it is getting pretty good. I already, like a month ago, had about 80 percent of my strength, but it's been getting better and better every day. But it's at least 90 percent right now, and I feel like I am able to do everything. So I am very positive about my ankle."

"5-11.5, 190, 195 pounds."
