Actually in this offseason you don't try to work out -- -- -- to the long term deal and you don't yeah. We are definitely see that in the future consoled you -- -- -- Post all good things come. Both army football is very important and I thank you know. Training camp usually don't -- those -- -- have a lot of time this little look foundation. Hello. You're a good player. You know he's been so much time throughout the week game planning team that you really don't have the big time attitude toward going to fundamentals of football so. He knows the town for me just coming hell I can't doctor Ross called. And -- losses are. Ringo and last year you went to training camp with the Patriots you did not arrive here until Labor Day. The weekend just days before the first game actually go to the weekend after Labor Day so. You know he had the first game not against San Diego where you sack for the Rivers twice only thank god this guy who shows up an hour before the game he can do it but left a. It's tougher than that was that was that was a difficult as the season wore on. Knowing that you did not have that base did not have that foundation that did not go to training camp with the team last year. Well you know is just one of those things I think you know you have -- get the team president I think. You know most pleased that we played here can only the second quarter they were. I'll talk to run into football so it wasn't like there was a whole lot of balls in the air you know in the second half you -- -- -- mostly. I don't want to clock out at that point so you know on the you know every year's different every season is good. Good -- him -- thank go we have some new well new weapons alternates that's. Did you -- on the bids hours that is super as the prince I don't care what you know the talk about defense and we -- And nobody took a lot of the secondary allowed Betancourt the defense totally blew it isn't it -- Dolphins -- field -- gives us more opportunities -- him. Preserve it sounds like a Tony Romo and everything like there's a new attitude. On the deep. If that was quick score let's change -- make things will be different. Guys this year well I think beautiful roses -- attention to detail I think last year you know. I'll never -- when midfielder the whole time so -- not think we got a a good start training camp.

You know obviously -- go to -- -- the spirit where shall we expected this one day you can. -- give him a regular season game -- so you don't gonna get our lives -- Honduras but no there's a lot of -- excite things and I mean we do. Click any horror of it Noah and guard have -- it was something that you know he's just a little over you have to have a lot of passes for. You know humbled very excited for the season this year like they were Federer breaks are. The count and you can predict -- pressure the first thing I did last year the Raiders broke the huddle on defense was find out where ninety. Are you lining up by one game who lined up on all fours spots that he lied. You are one of the most versatile lineman in football we've seen you -- -- -- bullets and handed a 34 you admitted as a tackle. The forgery and Australia mainly played bass and came into play tackle in the nickel. But this year in Camp David running your I think exclusively inside at tackle once we start for real you -- play ended all. Well I think we have some backers whose world all around you know I'll have moved into -- and yeah. Palmer did you do to tackle this year but we're probably give -- we're obviously but I -- -- myself form -- personal -- really. But every down player are a team that their gratitude all of the team that have to take out only situation you know you can stop the run you can rush the passer -- -- guess -- look. Offensive lineman. Yeah creates problems -- I don't know so. You know you always wanna be your -- that. Complain it is Steve can be through film they're good wannabe pros of Lima suggesting got an -- one the only 34 record -- Ever Portland Oregon -- -- -- saw -- on Christmas our problems are being -- Would you -- is your.

And exit because when you're in teams to run away from new that you do a lot of different playing -- when you're an inside your -- you can do prisons on. More play you can. He can be a factor in the game more often and does that worry their religion steel producing ten months yeah. And it didn't do it didn't -- to guzzle -- and ultimately that's. Got hands aren't penalized a victory technically you are done that in order played Tommy over the zero technical over the nose in the center so maybe you're -- Shoot the gap a little more -- -- -- the big news around the NFL this week is the proposal to go to eighteen game. In the regular season and until with a -- he's an advocate of perfect guy to ask because you've played in four Super Bowls to go to the Super Bowl -- -- you have to -- In nineteen it. Regular season games on my -- twenties and now you're gonna be required to go to 21. Maybe 28. To the years that you went to Super Bowls vs New Year's. We didn't make the playoffs at all. How much more worn down what your body plays those -- Again this well I think it started everything -- -- if you go to the Super Bowl and everything started in February you know. You Goosen opens February and game. You move it all in all -- so you had to you know most guys -- -- goes to the third order was always back in the process -- even more there retail. There's a lot list. And then you have OTA yeah. Yeah a lot of things apart from that standpoint -- -- Allard. Shorter so that it's -- you know as a lot that goes into it I don't think there's no different. Good answer. I'm personally not revert to cover an eighteen game schedule that hello my Castilla drove deep group of -- Don't know -- although. All the things that it -- as the ball -- You know especially players -- about the physical context boarded like baseball basketball credit even if you didn't. Take a look at.

Boy this young defensive lineman coming from the -- almost anybody and. -- -- there's going to be a point of the -- bargaining points coming up with a. The bargaining agreement what do you say they share though it's like nineteen games sixteen in the regular season and then go to get to the Super Bowl week. -- hungry like I've seen this year absolutely yeah. I should he wants nineteen yanks absolutely no -- -- like this the birds are out there even when I'm definitely palm on the part of a guy like it must be deliberate after the.
