T Mike Remmers - May 20, 2019

Q: What have the last couple of weeks and months been like for youthroughout the free agency process?

A: It's tough with the family, trying to figure out what's going to happen, trying to figure out where you池e going to be. Mr. Gettleman called, man I was so pumped to get the call and I知 happy to be here.

Q: Will you remind me, you were probably keeping your options open but when you left here the first time, in your mind did you expect to be back here?

A: I thought we had a really good first visit and I thought that talking to my agent and everything that this would be a great fit for me here. I知 very familiar with a handful of the coaches and everything, so we just thought it was a good fit for me here. Like I said, I'm just super happy to be here.

Q: What actually happened with your back? What required surgery?

A: It was just a little surgery, not a big deal. I feel great right now though, really.

Q: How much of the familiarity with Pat (Shurmur) and with Dave kind of drove you here and sped that process up?

A: It was great because just knowing them and being familiar with them and familiar with the offense. I feel very comfortable with the offense already, there's some wrinkles here and there that I need to learn, but I feel like if I hopped in right now, I壇 be pretty comfortable out there.

Q: What do you like about this group that you are with now?

A: It's been great so far. I知 still meeting everyone and trying to get a personal relationship with everyone, but it's been a very good week here and I知 really happy. I知 looking forward to this upcoming season.

Q: How important was it to you to get back to being a tackle? Is that something you wanted?

A: Tackle, I have the absolute most experience there, from high school, to college, to pros. I have the most experience at tackle. Last year I played all guard, the year before that mainly tackle and a few games at guard. It was different playing guard, I feel like my experience there will help me though going back to tackle. I feel like I learned a lot there but I am looking forward to playing tackle again.

Q: You are coming here, this is a team that needs you, they need your help on the offensive line, is that any different than going to a team that say is stacked (inaudible)

A: I mean honestly, competition makes everyone better. They have some great players here and even though they need that spot, there's a lot of competition out there still and that will help everyone develop and get everybody ready for the season.

Q: You and Kevin (Zeitler) have been in the league for a long time, what's your relationship? Have you crossed paths before?

A: I never have, this is the first time I have met him and he's great, I love him so much. So I know that we値l have a good time this season.

Q: How do you get that on field chemistry to click as quickly as possible?

A: Really just like this last week and today even, you know we池e doing OTA担 and going up against our defense. We致e just been communicating and I think that's working really well for us in the O-line room and on the field. Communication is critical.

Q: What痴 it like having such a small guy next to you?

A: That guy is enormous. He makes me feel really small. He is a wide guy, so he definitely looks the part. You can tell he's got a great attitude and you can just tell how much it means to him and that helps everyone around him. You can see how hard he is working, it pushes everyone else to work even harder.

Q: Some of the guys they brought in, you included, they池e talking about the culture building. What does that mean?

A: You池e working with coaches and players all day every day and you don't want a guy that is maybe a jerk or something like that. You want to have someone that you can work well with and I guess that they think that I work well with them. I'm here to learn, I知 here to be coached, and I知 trying to improve as a player

Q: When you have a guy like Saquon (Barkley) in the backfield, are you guys sitting there going, let痴 run every play?

A: I mean I love that. I love running the ball

Q: When do you think you'll be ready to go?

A: Hopefully soon. I feel great right now, so we'll see what they say.

with the way they have rebuilt this OL and I think big George is going to be a big piece in the future too. But man look at the beef up front of Eli and Quann now. The 2 guards are monsters. Curious to see Halapio between them but Remmers just locks it all in.

The Vernon for Zeitler trade gets nowhere near the attention it deserves. It was an absolutely brilliant move turning a good 兎dge into 1 of the best offensive lineman in the league.

Absolutely. Zeitler will set the attitude foundation for the line -Watch Hernandez grow now too
