QUOTE OF THE DAY
On his route running:
“That is why I think it is a perfect fit going to that offense. We are going to have a great scheme with these coaches. And just having the history of the West Coast offense and going through it, the only thing that is going to change really is the terminology. I look forward to playing it. I know it is going to be fast on that offense.” – WR Robert Woods via The John Murphy Show 5/1
