He's certainly got the build for it. He's a big body that can be very explosive and play that position. I think our defensive coaches are creative enough to pull that off.

Having coached him for the past three years, he has great knowledge of our system.

#Knowledge

He certainly hasn't lost anything in his arm strength and his ability. He had his career-best season as far as touchdown passes were concerned last year (in Miami). I've got a great working relationship with him, and he does a great job of working hand in hand with the starter. And that's what was important to me in this position.

We're going to do things somewhat differently. I kind of like the old-fashioned, kind of the college philosophy, in the weight room. ...

That signing is really not for any other reason other than we need a third guy that if called upon can do the job. That's really more Fisher's fit for us right now.
Scott Linehan
#Reason

I think that's what training camp is for. People can get close to, and watch, their favorite players perform in practice. If they've got a little time in the summer to come out and watch 'em, I think it's a great thing.

#People

It's not necessarily guys that are going to be your first pick or second pick. It might be people down the list a little bit. Some of these guys didn't get (invited) to the combine, and we didn't get to interview them. This is the only way we can get them, so I think that's a positive thing.

That throwing motion thing is way overrated. I think your anticipation and your ability to get the ball in the receiver's hands is the key more so than the motion. He's a proven player and I think he's a guy who can go help whoever takes him and be very effective. He's proven it.
Scott Linehan
#Ability

We put a lot of work into it. I credit our coaching staff for working hours you wouldn't believe. They really did their homework. We used Charley's scouting background, and I don't think Jay has had a day off since I got the job. I feel sorry for him. He's got this young rookie head coach that he's always got to be telling what we're doing next. He's done a really good job of putting us into position to do this.

He's had some injuries. It's probably the reason why we had an opportunity to look at him. If he had stayed healthy, he might not be on the street.
Scott Linehan
#Opportunity

I think that has a lot to do with a persona that kind of wills the team. His teammates respond to his leadership. I think that's kind of what separates him from a lot of the people in the draft.

I would think we would have close to 100 percent attendance. We do have one or two conflicts, so we might have a couple of guys miss a practice or two at the most.
Scott Linehan
#Attendance

I'm an old quarterback. Red is like hands-off. Gold is like, 'Hey, it is a quarterback. Don't tackle him.' Treat them like gold. I don't know if that is it. I just like the color better.

#Gold

There was some really good surprises in this camp about some guys where there was maybe a question mark that now we feel better about than when we started. And, there are few areas of concern about our depth that we are going to have to address in this draft.

Tight ends are very effective in the red zone. I've always liked using that position to be effective, not only in the red zone, but third downs (and) things like that.

There were some really good surprises in this camp as far as guys that may have been a question mark that we now feel better about than we started camp. There are also a few areas of concern as far as our depth that we're going to have to address at some point in the draft or free agency.

#Surprises

We won't cash it in because the (ninth) player goes in the draft. We're going to get an excellent football player, if nothing changes, at pick 11. So I'm totally confident with where we're at.
Scott Linehan
#Football

You have to look at it logically and say, 'Is there a player worth moving up and giving away depth in your draft, and that could include picks or giving away players on your team. Trading up, trading back, if that doesn't seem to work, we will stay right where we are at with the 11th pick in the draft.
Scott Linehan
#Giving

Very serious. Whether you like it or not, or if it makes sense on paper, it's hard to get your hands on players that can be great in this business. We feel strongly enough about one of those guys and if he's there and falls wherever he falls, I think that it is a big possibility that we'll take one. I'm not just saying that as a smoke screen, they are what they are and you can't deny that.

#Hard

It went the way we wanted, and it doesn't always work that way. We would be happy to take one of those guys, but it just so happened to work out just the way we hoped.
Scott Linehan

It's an honor to be (a candidate). I'm excited about being here. They'll be evaluating a lot of things. Obviously, I'm an offensive guy, and we'll talk about what might be implemented. We have a lot to look at on the other side of the ball and special teams, too.
