QUOTE OF THE DAY
LB Manny Lawson
Q: If you look at this team’s needs linebacker was a big priority. That must have been a lure as well.
A: Being that I was sought after and I was really one of the choices they wanted to go to that spoke volumes of what I meant to them. Therefore that as a person just really warms the heart. If somebody comes at you and tells you, ‘You know what, we want you. This is here. We need you here.’ Just to hear those words. Indescribable.
