Q: How important was it for you to be here at the beginning of camp?

A: It was really important for me. That was one of my main focuses.  Coming in, getting here on time, and contributing to the team.

Q: Were you worried it wouldn’t get done?

A: No, I didn’t have any worries at all. Me and my agent were talking throughout the whole time and I knew I would be here on time.

Q: First day at camp, what’s the thought process?

A: I just want to hit this playbook hard. We have the conditioning test today. I want to be on my A-game for that. I just want to hit the playbook tonight and be ready for tomorrow.

Q: How does it feel to be here?

A: It feels good. It’s a dream come true. I’m just ready to hit the field.

Q: Are you anxious to get on the field and put on the pads?

A: Yeah, I’m anxious.  They say football ain’t football until you put on the pads on. I’m looking forward to that. I’m ready for it.

Q: What are you expecting your first NFL camp to be like?

A: I’m expecting it to be tough. I’m a rookie, this is my first year in it, I know it’s not going to be easy. I’m looking forward to it.

Q: How about some hazing?

A: I’m not looking forward to that, but I know it’s coming.

Q: What song do you have picked out?

A: Whatever is in my head at the time.

Q: What do you think about the opportunity you have here at wide receiver?

A: I think it’s a good opportunity for me and every other receiver on the team as well. We just want to come in, compete, work hard, and contribute to the team.
