On there’s no such thing as a next man up: “Right, but it is what it is. Everybody has to get ready to play. You don’t know how the game is going to shake out. You don’t know how the roster is going to shake out. Everybody gets reps during the week and you just get them ready to play.”
On the difference between A.J. and T.J.: “A.J. has more experience. He’s played the position longer. That’s a real big one. I don’t really get into comparisons that way, but I know A.J. has logged more (repetitions) at the corner position.”
On T.J. Green’s background: “His story, his journey has been a fascinating one for sure. Since I’ve been with him, just to see how he’s passionate about his job. Passionate about football. Enjoys being out there with his teammates. It’s been really a cool thing to see.”
On Richie Grant’s development: “He’s going good. He’s learning every day. He’s a full of energy guy, which is awesome. He brings that to the room. He’s learning every day. He’s going to have a long productive career. He’s young though and he’s learning. You can see his growth from day to day and week to week. He’s having a big impact on us right now, on special teams.”
On how close he is to playing on defense: “You know, we’ll keep working with him. All I’m going to say is that he’s improving every week. He’s improving every day.”
