Q: B.J., playing in a defense where a lot of guys get multiple reps at different spots, how has that versatility helped you with your opportunity here?

A: Itís been great just coming here and competing with some guys, just learning the defense and doing my job. Itís not hard because I have been kind of doing the same thing, same defense I had in college, so itís not bad at all.

Q: How much do you know about Damon Harrison and hope that you can maybe learn or model your game after him a little bit.

A: He is one of the best run-stoppers in the league, and I take pride in stopping the run, too. I want to learn from him.

Q: Has he reached out to you, have you to talked to him?

A: Not yet, I have not.

Q: Have you spoken to any of the guys on the defense that are already here?

A: I havenít had a chance to meet them or see them yet.

Q: There are a lot of big names on the defense. Are you excited to get to know them?

A: Oh yeah, Iím ready to get started with them, get to know them and learn from them.

Q: What has it been like sinking your teeth into the playbook for the last couple of days?

A: Itís been fun, just learning a new defense with a new D-line coach. Itís been fun picking it up and playing fast.

Q: Anything new or different from what you did in college or a lot of the same stuff?

A: Itís pretty much the same concepts, just different wording, so not bad at all.

Q: Were you excited just to get back on the field and play football and not train for the combine?

A: It felt great today being back on the field. You donít have to worry about the 40, the shuttle and all that stuff. You are actually putting your hand in the dirt, attacking people and doing your job, playing football, finally. It felt wonderful.

Q: What can a player at your position show the coaches in a weekend like this where youíre wearing jerseys and shorts and really not thumping each other?

A: Show that you can pick up the playbook quick, play with technique, use your hands well and effort is a big thing, too.

Q: Where do the Giants view your role, as an end or an interior guy? How do you view that?

A: Like I said in my interviews, Iím an athlete. I can play anywhere on the line if they need me to play 1, 0, 3. I can play it all.

Q: What did you do yesterday?

A: I played mostly 3 and 1.
