On his return ability:
"I think it will help a lot. It’s one of my specialities. I really take pride in my punt returning and kick returning. A lot of teams are looking for a guy who can do multiple things on the football field. I think I’m that guy."

On making a living playing football:
"This is what I've always wanted to do. I was training with Cordarelle Patterson, working out one day, and we were like, 'Wow. This is work. This is our job.' It's really an honor to get paid and allowed to do something that I enjoy, that I love doing, wouldn't mind putting in extra work for. That's what I love. I love playing football, and I guess this is the time to get rewarded at the top level."
