QUOTE OF THE DAY
Head Coach Doug Marrone
On the extension of CB Leodis McKelvin:
“We’re excited that Leodis remains on our roster. Obviously, he is one of the most exciting kick returners in the game today, but we’re also counting on him to be very competitive for the starting corner position opposite Stephon Gilmore. We feel he could play an important role in our defense moving forward.”
