CB Donte Deayon
Postgame vs. Jets, August 26, 2017
Q: Did you think about redeeming yourself from the punt from the last time you played here?
A: I have a short-term memory, so that play has been out of the window. Day by day, I keep trying to stack good days and move forward.
Q: When that ball is in the air, what do you see?
A: I just read the quarterback. Robert [Thomas] got some good pressure on him. Jackrabbit [Janoris Jenkins] made a nice play and it popped in my hands. Then I was just trying to get into the end zone.
Q: Can you describe what you were feeling as you grabbed the ball and headed to the end zone?
A: Excitement. When you get a chance to score a touchdown, itís always exciting.
Q: When was the last time you scored a touchdown?
A: College. UConn. Pick six.
Q: Can you take us through the play?
A: I kind of bobbled it a little bit. I had to make sure I secured the catch first and then I took off running. I looked and saw that the quarterback wasnít going to be able to catch me. I was just excited to get in the end zone.
Q: Whatís the difference between you this year and last year?
A: Attention to detail. Iíve been in the playbook real heavy and trying to make sure Iím on top of things mentally. Then over the season, trying to physically get my body right so I donít have soft tissue injuries. My body and my mentality. I have had a year under my belt to figure things out and itís paying off.
Q: How important is it for you to show the versatility to play the slot and also special teams?
A: I think itís important to play in this league as not just a slot guy. You want to be able to show versatility whether itís special teams, outside or inside. You just want to be able to do it all for them and contribute to the team in any way possible.
