Q: How are you feeling?
A: I am feeling good right now. I am definitely ready. I have been trying to change up my work a little bit [in] the offseason and back in the winter so I feel like I知 ready to go.
Q: What was your reaction when you heard about Jason Pierre-Paul?
A: Just concerned, hoping he is all right.
Q: Have you spoken to him at all?
A: I have talked to him, little quick conversations.
Q: Does it sound like he is doing ok?
A: I mean I didn稚 ask him too much. The biggest concern was asking him how he was doing. He sounded in good spirits.
Q: Are you confident he will get back out there this year?
A: That is something that I can稚 speculate on what his situation is. I知 not fully aware of what is going on, so as teammates we are hopeful that he will be back here with us at some point.
Q: He was obviously a huge piece of the defensive line. What is your confidence in the defensive line and pass rush without him?
A: We have a lot of very capable players on the defensive line. JPP is obviously the name on this defensive line. He is a star or that type of player that is really hard to replace. As a team, we just [have] to approach this camp like we would approach it even if he [were] here. Our emphasis has to be on getting better, each player individually, and doing whatever we can do to help this team.
Q: Do you anticipate getting more time at defensive end?
A: I知 not sure. It depends; I go back and forth wherever I am needed most and wherever they put me, I値l play.
Q: You were there in the spring right?
Q: Have you sort of taken that role over?
A: I知 sure they will work me back and forth to make sure I知 getting reps at both [defensive end and defensive tackle].
Q: Do you have a preference at all?
A: Yeah, I have a preference, but I知 not going to tell you.
