Q: How did it feel running around out there yesterday for a little bit?
A: It felt good, I was talking to my former teammates that are all over the place. We are all just excited and Iím really excited to get out here and play football. Itís been a long time.
Q: What do you feel you bring to this team?
A: I feel I bring a lot of athleticism, versatility. I can do a lot of things out there, and just energy. Iím young, I have a lot of energy. I want to soak it all in, soak it in from the vets, soak it in from the coaches and just be a sponge.
Q: One of your college teammates, Aaron Davis, is here. What can you tell me about him as a corner?
A: I love Aaron. Once I saw he was coming up here, I got excited. Heís a very smart player. He understands plays, he can read plays before the snap happens, and it helps having a guy like him in the backfield.
Q: What are the similarities between Kirby Smartís system and the one here?
A: The main similarity when you come out here, itís time to go to work. We can have fun, but keep the main thing the main thing. Be where your feet are. We are out here to work and get better and thatís what we are going to do every day. The coaches are going to be on you from the first whistle to the last one.
Q: What has been the biggest challenge or adjustment for you so far?
A: I think the biggest challenge has been getting in the playbook, making sure I understand all the adjustments we need to make and learning the terminology. Everywhere you go, itís going to be different terminology, so you just want to be speaking the same language as the coaches.
Q: Lorenzo, when are they going to start playing some classical music during practices?
A: I might have to talk to somebody about that. I donít know if that would be a great time for classical music. I would be down with it.
Q: You are a big fan right?
A: Oh yes, sir.
Q: Do you listen to it before games to get yourself pumped up?
A: No, not pumped up. Classical music is more my after the game to relax and get my mind off things.
Q: How did you get into that?
A: In elementary school, fifth grade, I started to play the cello and it stuck with me. I love the sound of wood instruments, and I just fell in love with classical music.
Q: So, you have a pretty good talent for the rookie show?
A: Oh, yeah, I forgot about that. Yeah, I will bring a cello in here and get down for them.
Q: Did you play any other instruments besides the cello?
A: Yes, I played cello, tuba, baritone, which is the same thing as the tuba. I tried to play bass for a little bit. Itís a little big, I donít like the sound of it. Iíve dabbled in a couple of instruments.
Q: Dalvin Tomlinson came here last year as sort of the Renaissance man, the guy who plays instruments and stuff. Maybe you two get together in the defensive meeting rooms and put together a band?
A: I see what youíre talking about. We can get a band together real quick.
