Wide Receiver Darius Slayton
Q: Over the next 48 hours what do you think is going to happen?
A: I don't know. Every year, it's kind of like my fourth time doing this. I don't know. I don't really stress about it too much. At the end of the day, if it's meant for me to be here, I'll be here. If it's not, I won't.
Q: Would you be surprised if you ended up somewhere else at this point?
A: I don't think surprised is the word. I don't think I would be surprised now.
Q: This is your first real taste of the business side of it, right? When you're coming in as a rookie, this is the business side for the first time, right?
A: Yeah, I mean I feel like other guys can pass if they're going into contract years or their fourth years. I feel like I kind of had a little bit of an example, I guess. That wasn't the word I was looking for but sure. An example of kind of what it's like and how to deal with it. We'll see what happens.
Q: What have you been dealing with physically? What has been your injury?
A: I just tweaked my hamstring a little bit, but it was nothing major. It's just one of those things when speed is your thing and it's pretty important to run fast, it's a little frustrating to deal with.
Q: You weren't on the field as much as you want to be, do you think when you were on the field you showed what you can do enough? Or was it not enough reps to make your case the way you wanted to?
A: I definitely think throughout camp I made plays, for sure. I think I showed up in some spots, showed some flashes and hopefully, it was enough.
Q: Were you guys as a group surprised? Most starters didn't play. A guy like (Wide Receiver) Kenny (Golladay) did play. As a wide receiver group, he played in the other preseason games and he's kind of the only one in that position that ended up playing today. Did that surprise you guys as a wide receiver group?
A: I would say no, mostly because our room is so competitive. So much talent in there from top to bottom. I think it's in all of our best interests to be out there as much as possible and try to put our best foot forward.
