(Speaking Sunday about his first day of drills on Saturday)
Larry Anam: "It was tough, fast-paced and I felt myself getting winded when I started doing drills out there. I have not felt that way in a while. Maybe it's because Bill Belichick and everybody is out there watching me and I realized I am working in the NFL, and I still can't believe it. But it was good, and I felt good. There is a lot going in, and I have a lot of mental reps, and it's not just physical ability since you have to be mentally ready, especially on this team. I have to know the playbook and have to know the system."
(On special teams)
LA: "It is really important for me since Coach Belichick puts a lot of emphasis on special teams. For me as an undrafted free agent to make the team, I have to really perform on special teams as much as I can. Special teams may be the most I can get, since I might actually only get to play one or two plays in a defensive series and show my talent, so I have to make my mark on special teams right now. They are deep in the defensive backfield - very deep."
(On coming from Boston College to the local team)
LA: "It's like 35 minutes from campus, and my best friend drove me. I got here easily, and it was pretty easy to find."
