Wide Receiver Darius Slayton
Q: Was yesterday a difficult, certainly unique day for you?
A: No, about the same. I went to meetings. Obviously, we covered the Titans – it's our opponent this week. So, pretty much the same.
Q: As far as the financials, what is your mindset now?
A: My mindset now is (Titans Cornerback) Kristian Fulton and (Titans Cornerback) Roger McCreary are good corners. So is (Titans Safety) Kevin Byard and their other starting safety, they're all good players. They've got a good defensive backfield that we've got to be ready for.
Q: Did you think about telling them, you know what – just cut me?
A: Yeah, (Titans Defensive Tackle) Jeff Simmons is a hell raiser. He's a really good defensive tackle. A good rusher, good player. We've got to be ready for him.
Q: Do you have a good understanding of what your role is here now on this team?
A: Yeah, run routes, get open and catch the football.
Q: A lot of people, if they're in your situation, they would be pissed off and it would linger because this is a part of your livelihood. How do you avoid spending a lot of the season very annoyed at your employer?
A: By doing my job, playing football.
Q: Is it one of those where they had all the power and you had very little of it?
A: Yeah, kind of like I said I just play football. That's my job, it's what I do for a living. I tend to do it well and I plan to do it well this year.
Q: What do you want to show people? It's a contract year - whether you're here or whether you're somewhere else. Who knows what kind of opportunities you get but what do you aim to show the league or this team who you are as a player?
A: Probably just that I'm a good football player. I think I've shown that in the past, but I look forward to showing that again and showing that I'm a better player than what I've been in the past.
