The last word

"It's coming along real well. Like I said earlier Rashean (Mathis), he's pretty much the vocal leader. Just trying to be on the same page with him, not only just me and Courtney (Greene), but we have to incorporate our cornerbacks and make sure all of us are on the same page as a unit, the nickel, Drew Coleman. We've been working on that right now and it's been going pretty well."
