Head Coach Bill O’Brien
(on what it means to be a good teammate) “It means caring about the team, doing what’s best for the team, and embracing your role. They’re all fighting for a role right now. We’re early, we’re only in June. They’re all trying to find a role on the team. We place them in a role and then it’s up to them to define that role and maybe find another role. That’s part of being a good teammate, embracing the role that we give you. Then communication, being dependable, being smart, and being tough. Those are all things that make up a good teammate.”
TE C.J. Fiedorowicz
(on if watching DE J.J. Watt is motivation) “Oh absolutely, I remember last year when I first got here he was always the first guy in the building. You always see his car in that first spot. He’s just the same guy every day. You come in and you think early on in the year he is going to come in and do that, but he will start taping off. But he continued that 16 weeks last year. Even away games and preseason, when he wasn’t going to play, he was in the hotel weight room lifting. Something is going on up there. He’s got a whole other mindset when it comes to football. He’s a freak.”
