Q: What is it like being back?
A: It feels good. Feels good to be back in the building, definitely feels good to be back in the Giants uniform. Just want to continue to make plays and be a great football player and a great team player.
Q: It is a different playbook from what you remember. How do you think youíll be able to contribute on a short-term basis knowing you have a lot of stuff to learn?
A: I came in last week and got a head start, but whatever they need me to do, Iím sure theyíll sprinkle me in and get acclimated. But whatever the coaches need me to do, whatever they need me here to be, thatís what I will be.
Q: How much does it help that you and Eli know each other like the back of your hand?
A: That helps a lot. That helps a lot, that chemistry. Weíre definitely looking forward to it. Glad to be back in this position again, playing with Eli again. I look forward to everything that is about to come.
Q: When you left here, did you think there was ever a chance that youíd be back?
A: In my heart. I felt like this is where I wanted to be in my heart. Business is business and itís going to play out the way itís going to play out, and fortunately I was blessed enough to be back in this position.
Q: How tough was it to sit out for the first three months of this year?
A: That competitive job and I just had to stay in it. Came up with a little that my agent made sure I got off the couch every week by going to see different teams. So thatís kind of how I got every week started, Iíd watch Sunday football, then go see a team, get a little workout in and just keep it going throughout the week. I was just making sure I was keeping up with my body and when the time came, I wouldnít be slacking and I would fit right in.
Q: What do you feel you can bring to this team walking in as late as right now?
A: Confidence level. Itís a new season, we got a six-game schedule. Iíve seen this before and weíre right where we need to be in this division. Just look forward to whatís at hand.
Q: How do you feel?
A: I feel great.
