The last word

"It's a great opportunity. I've just been here a day but it seems we've got a good group of tight ends. I'm going to learn a lot from Marcedes [Lewis] who is a big, athletic tight end just like myself, I mean he's got some attributes I don't have but it would be nice to learn from. With Zach [Miller], I've seen Zach play a little bit and the other guys are all good so it should be interesting."
