I think I always try to play hard and be as physical as possible after I get the ball, ... I'm probably not going to outrun too many people, so I just try to run them over.

Not only did he reach out to help a rookie who didn't know many people around here, but he helped out a guy who's not even on this team anymore, ... Obviously, it's because he's a great guy. It meant a lot to me to hear from him. He could relate to me. He was able to help me. I look forward to seeing him face to face (today).

It was very exciting. That was my first live action in front of a packed house at Heinz Field.

He's a big part of our football team, and I know he was frustrated he wasn't able to play. I'm sure he'll be back and will be a big help to us.

I made a few catches, but you can't be satisfied, ... Any time you lose the game, you've got to be disappointed.

I was a little bit surprised. I obviously knew of him. And I thought it was nice of him to call. It was very nice to hear from a player who has been in the league for so many years. To hear from a player that's not even on your team was really nice.

I was able to get open and Tommy got me the ball.

I'd say I need to pick up the pace, don't I? ... I have a long way to go to get to 26. We'll see about that.

I'd like to talk to him, but just about being the best tight end I can be, ... I know he did some great things here and was part of a lot of winning teams. I want to experience that type of success here. I'm not too worried about my statistics because that's not what's important. It's winning games.
