Tavecchio has missed 4-of-8 field goal kicks during the exhibition season.
“I think my number one responsibility is, to be honest with the guys,” Quinn said. “Sometimes, in the NFL, it can be difficult for a player walking around a subject or not being honest with where we’re at. When I can, I’d really like to be clear with a player and explain to them what we’re doing and why we’re doing it.”
Quinn explained the team’s approach to Tavecchio.
“Sometimes having those hard conversations face to face makes it a lot easier to understand where everybody’s at,” Quinn said. “He totally recognized that and understood so I was clear on what we’re going to do for this week."
