Me and Terry Bradway have connections back at Kansas City. He was kind of responsible for me going there. He brought me in, took me out to dinner. Next day I took a tour, talked to all the coaches, talked to Herman, and left there with a contract.
I had a great relationship with Terry in Kansas City, he's straight-forward. He's just a great person. I'm not just saying that, it's true, he's a great person. I know his family. I've done some speeches, talks at his son's school. I just am thrilled to be able to work with him again.
I'm aggressive. I feel as though I can do whatever's asked of me. I can cover, I can tackle, I play special teams. I just like being on the field.
Also I'm a leader, I'm unselfish. And I just bring, I believe, more importantly, a boost of positive energy out there on the field.
I've heard that [Jon McGraw's] just a great person. And in order to play together, in order to do anything and be successful at it as a team, you got to have some great people to work together, and you got to have chemistry.
I think things will be fine between us. I've heard nothing but great things about him and I can't wait to meet him, and can't wait to work with him and the rest of the defense.
Did I have a better year last year than [John Lynch]? I personally feel like I had a pretty good year. Numbers-wise, I believe I [had a better year]. But he still went to the Pro Bowl and I didn't.
He in the eyes of a lot of people had a better year than I did. It depends at how you look at it. I mean, the team that I had went further. I don't want to talk bad about him because he's a great player, and he's done a lot of great things. But if you just look at the numbers, they speak for themselves.
I was not wishing anything bad on John. I was hoping he'd go there, pass the physical, and whatever would transpire, would transpire. If it weren't meant for me to be in New York, I wouldn't be there. If John had signed, then, you know, I would have been happy for him and I move on. I had interests from other teams. If it wasn't New York, then it would be somewhere else.
