QUOTE OF THE DAY
Sammy Watkins, Buffalo Bills Wide Receiver
Q: Coach Marrone said you were in here at 6:45 am on your own running routes. What time did you get here and why did you come in so early?
A: For me, I think I need to work on my routes more than anything. I have the speed and size and the ability, now it’s just down to the details and the little things. Initially the cornerbacks are great, they know the details of your route and you have to be crisp and right on everything you do and have to make everything look the same. I woke up this morning and that’s what I was trying to do. Stay straight, keep my head up and work on my routes and my breaking points.
