A: We've talked a couple of times. We just have to reach a number and we're not close yet.
Q: Have you been on any visits?
A: I haven't been on any. I don't want to take any until I know I won't be here.
Q: Do you think it will work out here?
A: I don't know, but I'm hoping and praying. But it doesn't smell right. I do want to stay here; I love my owner.
Q: Has this taken longer than you expected?
A: It's taken a little while. When I was about to start visiting teams is when the Redskins made their first offer so I decided to wait. It's very weird. It feels like I'm doing nothing with my life. I wake up early and I work out early and then I have the rest of my day.
Q: How tough is this process for you?
A: Nothing is too difficult for me. It's just a process. I do want to play some football. This is the longest I've been without being around it. And I'm healthy! I want to be out there going to camps and practices and being with the guys and throwing the ball around. All I can do now is go to the track, run and stay in shape.
Q: How long are you prepared to wait?
A: I could very well sign after June 1. I held out for 26 days as a rookie so I can be patient. You could sign for garbage without patience.
