A: A few good things, a few bad things. You kind of go out there and every rep you’re getting is something you’re putting on tape and it’s an opportunity where you’re going to be evaluated. You want to make the most of those and the reps I got in there, I felt like there were a few good ones and a few bad ones. I had my opportunities.

Q: You didn’t get a whole lot last night. Did you expect that going in?
A: I really didn’t know. Usually the last preseason games are where the younger guys, the guys trying to make the team, get a lot of snaps. We didn’t necessarily know until the day going into the game how our reps were going to turn out, but I got a good amount of reps in the fourth quarter.

Q: There’s a theory that a lot of guys they won’t put on the field because they don’t want to put them on game tape for other teams. Did that thought cross your mind at all?
A: No. I don’t know. You don’t really pay attention or think about that kind of stuff. Whenever your number is called, you go out there and try to make plays.

Q: Did this summer put in your head that you belong here?
A: I think so. I just took it day by day from the first day I got out here and that’s really all you can do coming in as a free agent and a rookie trying to make a team. I felt like I came out and I gave it my all every day and that’s really all you can do.

Q: What will tomorrow be like for you?
A: I don’t know. It’s just kind of waiting, I guess, just kind of to see what happens. It’s been a long time coming to this day and a lot of us will be in the hotel. A lot of us younger guys waiting to kind of see our fate. We’ll see what happens.

Q: You’re going to be hanging out together?
A: There’s a lot of us that stay around the hotel and we’ve become good buds, a lot of us. So we’ll probably all be hanging around and just around each other. Keep each other company.

A: You don’t want the phone to ring.
